Android Player Security

Is there any way to secure an android player with a password or pin code? We have been talking to a bank about deploying the DS Devices android players into some of their branches but they are concerned about attaching a device to their network that isn’t secure. They are concerned that anyone who plugs a keyboard and mouse into the player has full control of it.

There are kiosk-mode applications out there for Android that are designed to let you lock down Android devices.

Xibo for Android isn’t designed to lock a device down, but it should work as an application being run in one of those apps.

You can lock the Player settings menus out with a password in the Display Settings -> Android section of the CMS. You’ll want to do that in conjunction.
