If you’re utilizing iPads for surveys, event registration or lead capture, you’ll want to make sure each iPad stays locked to a specific app. You certainly don’t want users to be accidentally directed away from your content or searching the web instead of filling out a survey.
Although there are a number of apps available to lock an iPad into Kiosk Mode (we like KioskPro), perhaps the easiest way is to use Guided Access in iOS. There is no purchase or download required, and every iPad automatically comes with this option! Read on for a quick guide on using this universal iPad feature.
I. Enable Guided Access in iPad Settings
- Open Settings.
- Go to General and then Accessibility.
- Tap on Guided Access (located within the Learning section).
- Turn the switch to ON.
- Tap on Passcode Settings and then Set Guided Access Passcode.
- Enter a passcode (you’ll need this passcode to exit Guided Access once activated).
