Our setup hosts a webservice directly on the android device so the home url for kioskbrowser is localhost. Still, the webservice needs internet connection and I would like to have the connection reset if KioskBrowser cannot access a certain adress (even if the wifi is still connected). I would propose to let Kioskbrowser check the availability of a changeable adress i.e. the Google DNS instead of checking if the home url is available.

I have whitelist and troubleshoot whitelist options enabled. The blocking of URLs that aren't in the list works fine, but the toast popup doesn't appear to show the blocked addresses. App 2.5.6, Android 5.0.1 on an Insignia NS-P10A6100.


We are trying to get Auth0 working in a whitelist environment, and I've added every google/facebook domain that can be sniffed for the social connections, but they are still blocked. It works fine with whitelist disabled.

The 7.0 Nougat devices that we're working with have a split screen feature that, if successfully triggered by a user, allows them to freely use the phone in the non-Kiosk window.


Is there any way for Kiosk Browser to completely disallow split-screen mode?

The 7.0 Nougat devices that we're working with have a screen capture feature that can be triggered by users in one or two different ways.


Is there any way for Kiosk Browser to completely disable user-initiated screen captures?

We're using a series of NFC stickers to open webpages, is it possible to only open a series of URLs? - i wouldn't want open an NFC sticker from an untrusted source.

What will happen to my locked down tablet when the licence runs out?

Will it just unlock and the App won't continue to run or will the tablet turn into a brick?

We are running the Kiosk App on a number of Google Nexus tablets. The tablets connect to WiFi and are running a web fronted database. We have been finding an issue where the tablets seem to loose the WiFi connection every few minutes (approx. 6-10 minutes) but if we turn off the kiosk app and use the Chrome browser on the tablet it works OK. Can you think of any reason this is happening?

Is there a way to hide the keyboard popping when the user select an input field ?

Or, do you know a very simple keyboard (without suggestions, emojis...) ?

Thanks.

In the documentation it's suggested that file:// URLs should work with NFC. While I can get http:// URLs working fine, I can't seem to get file:// URLs to work. I'm using the path to the localstorage, which I'm pretty sure is correct because it's also used in the kiosk browser address:

file:///storage/emulated/0/kioskbrowser/localstorage/page2.html


I've tried with just file:// (2 slashes) too but neither work.


I get the message 'NFC Tag not supportedfile:///storage/emulated/0/kioskbrowser/localstorage/page2.html'

I can't access Webview debugging tools from Kiosk Browser. According to the android web view pages (https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/remote-debugging/webviews) I should be able to enable debugging by entering the URL chrome://inspect. Unfortunately doing this using Kiosk view changes it to http://Chrome//inspect and the debugging tools don't open. Can enabling debugging or allowing urls starting with chrome:// be enabled please?
