KB0215 - Set up SureFox in Kiosk mode

 

Background

This article is made to assist in setting up a Kiosk screen for the Guest registration feature of Resource Central using SureFox browser in Kiosk mode on iOS. Setting up on Android is quite similar.

Please note that are a variety of different kiosk applications that can do the same as Surefox, that might fit your needs better on solution features or prices. We are not as such recommending Surefox. Add-On Products kiosk solution has been tested on Surefox and it will fulfil the basic needs. So please do investigate the market before purchasing your kiosk application as there are many other suppliers.

 

Summary

Open the SureFox browser, then go to its Settings section. The following list is displayed:

Press [Allowed Websites] as shown in the above figure, and then press [Add], the details panel of a brand new website are displayed as the following figure:

Fill in URL and Title of the website.

Note: In order to know how to compose the URL, please refer to Kiosk Administrator Guide.

Set the URL to run at start up.

Then press [Add] button, you are directed back to the list of allowed websites with the site you have just added:

Press [Settings] → [Done], you are taken back to the kiosk screen. If you have set up a screen saver this will be the first screen. If not it will be the kiosk mode screen chosen in the back end. In the example it is the kiosk mode “Meetings”. 

How to disable Surefox logo

Default SureFox wallpaper (white background with SureFox logo) can be replaced with wallpaper of your choice or totally disabled. Please use Wallpaper option under SureFox Settings to set wallpaper for SureFox Home Screen.
