Showcase has a nifty feature called Kiosk Mode that allows you to alter the display options when presenting a showcase.
Kiosk Mode disables the 'Home' button in the top left corner of your showcase, meaning anyone viewing it can only see that particular showcase.
This is perfect for displays at trade shows, conferences, or other events — simply set up your device in a public-facing display without worrying about someone accidentally seeing all your secret information.
For an in-depth look at Kiosk Mode, check out our blog: Kiosk Mode: The Unsung Hero of Trade Shows and Events.
Here's how to enable Kiosk Mode:
- Open the Showcase Workshop app on your device and tap the 'Settings' wheel in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen.
- Click the 'Main' tab and tap the toggle next to 'Kiosk Mode' to switch it on.
- Open your showcase and marvel at the fact that the 'Home' button is gone!
When you want to leave Kiosk Mode, you need to close the app completely and reopen it.
Note: If you're leaving the device on a display and you want to avoid someone accidentally closing the app, we recommend setting up your device in a device stand that covers the 'Home' button.
