Kiosk mode helps organizations create a locked-down and dedicated user experience on Windows devices. A multi-app kiosk approach is appropriate for devices that are shared by multiple people. Each user can authenticate the device and receive a customized experience based on the configuration.

Users can access pre-approved apps and websites in kiosk mode on Windows devices. All other apps and features are hidden. Hardware buttons are disabled to prevent intentional or accidental use of hardware keys. This avoids device misuse and security breaches or productivity issues. Also, limiting mobile data usage on unessential apps reduces telecom costs.
