KioWare Lite for Android™ Features
Protect the Home Screen/Launcher
It is critical to prevent the user from accessing the Home Screen (the Android equivalent to the Desktop) and App Launcher. KioWare for Android products only allow your specified applications to run, preventing the user from executing, downloading or installing any other applications.
KioWare can also be configured to allow 3rd party Android apps to run. However, we recommend only doing so with an app that you have created, as KioWare cannot lock down the access that the app may provide. For instance, if utilizing a 3rd party app that links out to a particular website, KioWare cannot prevent the app from accessing that website. At a minimum, you need to thoroughly test the 3rd party Android app.
Through allow or revoke lists, KioWare for Android products limit the user to only the domains or pages you choose. In addition, if displaying internet web pages, links such as mailto tags or file downloads can be blocked.
Limit Android Apps
Similarly to how KioWare locks down the browser, it also allows you to control which Androids Apps a user can run.
Once the user has finished with the application, all traces of the user’s previous session are removed by automatically clearing cookies and cache and returning to the start page.
