For tablet devices, you can access the setting items—such as Bluetooth, NFC, Mobile Data, and Location—even if the administrator has not allowed the modify permissions for device settings. For tablet devices running Android 9 and higher, all settings items are not accessible if the admin disabled access to the device settings.

Users can tap i in the bottom-left corner of the home screen, tap Settings in the Kiosk Launcher details pop-up screen, and then open the Settings screen.

To allow users to change the kiosk device’s settings:

  1. Click Select Settings in the top menu.
  2. Choose the settings that you want to allow on the Device Settings screen.
    • Click Select all to select all settings. If you click an individual settings item, the Select all button is disabled automatically.
    • Any settings that are not supported by the device can’t be configured, even if you allow them.
  3. Click Save.

Caution

If you enable the Display setting, the device user can adjust the zoom and font scale settings to a degree that elements on the home screen, including app names, become unreadable or hidden.
