Version 3.19 is now available with new security features and improvements to existing functionality.

The KioWare for Android kiosk app turns your Android device into a secure, self-service kiosk or purposed device limiting access to only the websites and applications you allow. 

Version 3.19 is now available with new security features and improvements to existing functionality. 

New security features available for Lite, Basic & Full include the ability to clear third-party app data using Samsung KNOX. Samsung tablets using S-Pens previously exposed a security vulnerability. S-Pen functionality can be blocked by selecting "Disable Air Command Mode" in the Samsung KNOX tab, removing this potential vulnerability. 

Single app mode allows users to set the device to serve only one application. Improvements to Single App Mode include the ability for users to manually select the specific application that will display when Single App is activated. 

A new feature to KioWare for Android allows for launching applications or websites from the toolbar or other locations using “intent://” scheme. This is a Chrome feature outlined online at

KioWare Full for Android has also been updated to allow users to customize server communication retry attempts. This setting allows users to configure KioWare to retry communication for sending heartbeats, updating content, uploading statistics, and executing server commands. This provides increased reliability for kiosks that may have an intermittent or poor internet connection.
