Configuring the Browser (Kiosk Mode)

Rationale

If you want to offer a local web browser there are some settings that improve its security. Additionally, these settings add up to a kiosk mode, hiding the rest of IGEL OS from the user.

Instructions

By default the web browser makes all of its features and menus available. To achieve a restricted 'kiosk' mode, follow these instructions:

  1. In the IGEL Setup go to Sessions > Browser > Browser Global > Security
  2. Activate Safe Browsing (default: deactivated)
  3. Activate Malware Protection (default: deactivated)
  4. Go to Sessions > Browser > Browser Sessions > [session name] > Settings > Restart
  5. Enable Autostart (default: deactivated)
  6. Enable Restart(default: deactivated)
  7. Go to Sessions > Browser > Browser Sessions > [session name] > Window
  8. Enable Start in Fullscreen Mode (default: deactivated)
  9. Enable Hide local filesystem (default: deactivated)
  10. Enable Hide configuration page of the browser (default: enabled)
  11. Go to Sessions > Browser > Browser Sessions > [session name] > Settings > Menus & Toolbar
  12. Activate Hide App Menu/Menu Bar (default: deactivated)
  13. Go to Sessions > Browser > Browser Sessions > [session name] > Context
  14. Check Hide the browser's context menu (default: deactivated)
  15. Click Apply.
  16. Reboot the endpoint device.
