Sandboxing in iOS/iPadOS

In iOS and iPadOS, each app is confined to its own 'sandbox' for security reasons and is not allowed to access files or data of other apps.  

This means that Kiosk Pro does not have 'write' access outside its own Documents folder. Storing files or other data created in Kiosk Pro in any location on the device outside of the app is not possible in iOS or iPadOS.

Sandboxing individual applications protects apps from each other and also protects user data. Without sandboxing, if one app installed on a device has bugs or malicious code, that app could interfere with the ability of other apps to run successfully or could access data stored in another app and corrupt it. By preventing applications from interfering with each other, sandboxing increases the stability of iOS/iPadOS as a whole.

If you need to access locally stored data outside of the app, one option is the Dropbox integration in Plus and Enterprise, which allows you to sync data stored in the kiosk's unique content folder back to a Dropbox account when the device connects to the internet.  Our API for capturing photos also allows you to return an image file as a Base64 formatted string, which can be easier to send off the device to a server.
