How to Setup Chromebox Kiosk

Use Chromebook in Kiosk ModeYou can use a Chromebox as a kiosk by turning on Single App Kiosk mode for your Chrome app. This mode works best for any single-purpose use case such as guest registration desks or library catalog stations. Chrome kiosk apps are useful for environments that require a user to interact with a single application. Chromeboxes are also useful for running digital signage kiosk apps, such as flight schedules in an airport, session schedules in a conference, or restaurant menus.





What is a Chrome Kiosk?

A Chrome kiosk can be any type of computer kiosk hosted on a Chrome device, such as digital signage in airports, a restaurant menu, or an interactive game. It can be a business center computer where users walk up, browse the web, and all of their session data is wiped when the user ends the session.

There are public-session kiosks and single-app kiosks on Chrome OS. With public-session kiosks, multiple users can share the same Chrome device and access multiple websites in a window mode (not full screen mode). Because no user credentials are required and all session data is deleted when the user exits the session, public-session kiosks are popular in libraries, business centers, and business lobbies.

Single-app kiosks are designed to run in full screen mode and don’t allow users to exit the app. They’re great for a purpose-built Chrome device, such as a guest registration desk, a library catalog station, or a point of sale system in a store.

Can you configure a Chrome device as both a public-session kiosk and a single-app kiosk? Yes, but you can only automatically log in to one type of session or app at a time. For example, if you select Auto-Launch Public Session, you can’t set Auto-Launch Kiosk App on the same device.
