Allow Settings Access through API

Supported In:

Kiosk Pro Plus and Enterprise

This toggle allows devices to opt-in to access the app's settings through our JavaScript API. By default, this permission is disabled as a security precaution.

Default Value: Off

Using an API call to access settings can allow your content to trigger app settings after a different type of authentication request or using a different touch gesture than our standard Show Settings options.

By requiring devices opt-in to allow this type of request, the app automatically prevents unintended access on existing devices or devices where this type of access is not desired. We do not recommend enabling this feature on kiosks that allow free web browsing as a visitor could then navigate to a page triggering these calls without an authentication mechanism in place and potentially access or change the app's settings.
