Last updated July 26th, 2023
The following sections describe how to exit Kiosk mode.
Exit Kiosk without unenrollment
By sending a device command
For a device that is successfully communicating with the server, you can send a device command to exit Kiosk mode. Doing so enables the device to exit the Kiosk mode and be managed in the normal mode. To restore the device back to Kiosk mode, you must apply the profile again. For more information about sending a device command, see Send device commands to devices.
By sending an exit Kiosk code
You can perform this procedure on all types of Kiosks—such as Single App, Multiple App, and Kiosk Browser—regardless of whether they’re properly communicating with the server.
This feature only applies to Kiosks created in v20.8 or later.
To exit Kiosk mode
Provide an Exit Kiosk Code to the device user. You can get the code from Device Details > Security > Kiosk Mode Status > Exit Kiosk Mode.
If the device is deleted from the Device List, to get the code, on the left hand navigation menu, go to Device > in the right button area, click Deleted Devices > in the list of devices that shows, search for the appropriate device. You can find the Exit Kiosk Code in the list of results.
The Exit Kiosk Code is randomly regenerated after it’s applied to the device to prevent it from being used again without authorization from an IT admin.
The user managing the Kiosk device must do the following:
Tap the icon.
In the case of a Single App Kiosk, you’ll need to tap the Home or Back button to show this icon. The icon disappears after 5 seconds of inactivity.
On the About Kiosk screen, tap Exit Kiosk.
Enter the Exit Kiosk Code.
To re-enter Kiosk mode
An IT admin must apply a profile update to the device.
