Hello - this seems to be a recurring issue. The android device is definitely online, Kiosk Browser is running and we can accessing it via Team Viewer to confirm wifi access. However, the device has not been seen by the Kiosk Browser system since yesterday. How do we resolve this to ensure the device is continuously seen when online? Thanks
Hi, I noticed on another post that the request for the device name (%DEVICENAME%) to be used as part of the Kiosk Title was added.
This would be really useful for us as the only way I can see of doing it at the moment is creating a manual key/value pair based upon the uniqueID in a backend database. This is liable to lose synchronisation when the tablets are swapped out due to breakages etc and the db is not updated and as we want to use it as an identifier for permissions. Setting the device name is always done before deployment.
Hi there - we have bought 20 licenses to be used on Samsung TAB Actives. During a round of user testing we discovered that you can get out of the app by pressing two buttons at once - the home button and the active apps button. This brings you to a list of open apps - even if there is none open, if you then swipe from the right you can access all the devices features - have you experience this before? can you please help?
I am using Kiosk Browser at my tennis club on a cheap, nameless Chinese tablet (running Android 4.4.2) to access a court booking facility. Trouble is, I often find that the tablet has dropped out of Kiosk Browser and is showing the launcher. I do not know how this is happening or how to find that out.
In an effort to prevent any background app updates or notifications, we're connecting our Android tablets to a wifi network that will only have SurveyMonkey.com and Kiosk Browser whitelisted. Every other connection on the internet will be blacklisted.
What is the address that Kiosk Browser uses to communicate back fourth with the web gui management tool?
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?
