Preferences Detail for Apple iOS options


With the screenlock option enabled, Touch ID, the camera, facetime, and other device settings are disabled, so the device can only be unlocked with Apple's lock passcode. 



With hideapps option enabled, all applications other than some default Apple applications will be hidden. Safari browser and the camera/Facetime is also removed. Please note that after timeout is disabled, or the user is permitted again by schedule, the apps will be restored, but will not retain their original position within folders.  They will be alphabetized by name.

Timeout Options For Android Samsung Devices


No options are available for Timeout when used with an Android device. Timeout is one toggle with all 3 functions built in.


The timeout feature will perform the following actions on Android devices:

  • Disable Internet access
  • Disable use of non-system applications on the device
  • Disable the use of the camera and browsers
  • Disable SMS/Text messaging

*It may take up to 10 minutes for some of options to take effect.
