Overview

A kiosk is a computer, tablet, or smartphone with settings that limit user access to certain apps and webpages. Usually, browser windows are full screen and the address, tools, menu, and status bars are hidden. For this reason, you may want to set up kiosks for patrons to use Self-Service. That way, they can sign in and out without being able to do anything else on that device.

KeepnTrack is web-based, so you can access any module from any computer or tablet. All you need is the URL!

Learn how to set up kiosks on your device's specific operating system and internet browser.
