Kiosk Mode

How to use Kiosk Mode functionality.


Kiosk Mode allows the ‘ | Terminal’ application to be ‘pinned’, filling the device’s screen and locking the ‘More’ (settings) section.

This functionality is especially useful for kiosks and similar customer-facing situations in which only the ‘ | Terminal’ application itself should be available.
