In COSU mode, the device is configured to display only specified apps and serve specific purpose (e.g. self-service point of sale). FAMOC gives you two methods of using Kiosk mode:

  1. FAMOC home screen (FAMOC Launcher) that gives access only to several applications with little or no options to be modified,
  2. single application that runs constantly on a device and can’t be closed.


The FAMOC Launcher is a built-in application of the FAMOC system (versions 3.18.0 and higher) available in ADVANCED > Config center > Applications. The FAMOC Launcher is designed to display only selected applications on the home screen of the device.

FAMOC administrator can also apply configuration of the Kiosk mode. Administrator can select application allowed to be used in the device. This app will be run in Kiosk mode, i.e. users will be able to use only this application. It will not be possible to quit the app, even using hardware buttons.
