Lock to App

Created: Modified: Documentation

GroundControl can put your device in Single App Mode (also sometimes known as Kiosk mode). This action restricts your device to one specific app and it be configured using built-in apps, Enterprise Apps and ones downloaded via MDM.

If the app is being downloaded from MDM, the Launchpad will wait some time (default 5 minutes) for the download to complete. If using an Enterprise App, make sure to follow instructions here to ensure it’s installed successfully on the device.

The action requires:

  • The app is installed and trusted.
  • The App ID of the intended app and Wi-Fi connection on the device.
  • With MDM, this may require two deployments , one to install the app following by a separate one to put the device in Single App Mode.

An Erase action is required to remove Single App Mode from a configured device.
