It would be great if someone can verify my current understanding of the Android Kiosk mode:
In earlier versions than Android 5.0 there is no comparable function like the Pin Screen (turning your device into a kiosk mode) - at least not out of the box from the standard functionality of the operating system.
Since Android 5.0 we have the pin screen function which allows us to specify the use of only one app (without leaving it or doing anything else except using this app). If you choose google chrome as the app of your choice (for the kiosk mode) there is no way to prevent the user from changing websites. Is that correct?
What we want to do:
We developed a website which shall run on Android devices in Google Chrome. We want to put this specific website into a kiosk mode. The problem we think we will have is that the user can still change the url and therefore leave our website.
Do you know if there is any way to prevent that? And are we right that before Android 5 no kiosk mode exists?
