What is Kiosk Mode?
Kiosk mode (or "Kiosk setting") is a setting for a computer/terminal to only perform a specific or limited number of functions. A computer in "kiosk mode" for example might be used in stores and transportation for self-service and management. A kiosk terminal may be limited to a specific software application(s) that only performs the few functions meant for that terminal.
Kiosk mode can be used to limit a computer to a specific function(s) such as a self-service pay kiosk.
Benefits of kiosk mode include:
- quicker access to workstation and/or software needed
- less setup required for the admin's staff
- better security for using the concept of least privilege
- helps streamline user experience with less ambiguity
