Disable text "You are currently in Kiosk Mode"

by litamin on Mon Jan 04, 2021 2:08 pm

Hi, is there anyway to disable the text "You are currently in Kiosk Mode, press ESC to exit" that shows up every time one goes to the kiosk URL?
It often blocks the buttons underneath it until it dissapears after a few seconds, And it doesn't look too slick/pro when you want to show someone else your project, nor can I quite understand the meaning behind it in the first place.

Can you try using:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
 ?kiosk=false


to the Adafruit IO Dashboard URL to disable kiosk mode?

I think you misunderstood me; I still want the kiosk mode - I just dont want the ugly text that pops up and says that I am in kiosk mode. It is unnecessary and doesn't look nice.

@litamin,

Okay, reverse the previous statement. Does adding this to your URL remove the prompt?

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
 ?kiosk=true

But adding that text is exactly what is enabling the kiosk mode. When you add that to the standard public URL that shows you the standard dashboard, you will get kiosk mode. And sure I have added it because I do want kiosk mode. What I do not want is the pop up saying that I am in kiosk mode.

So to answer your question: yes ?kiosk=true has been there in the end of my public URL all along.

Sure! Here you can see it - it stays there for about 5 seconds before dissapearing. I'm using chrome. Same on my phone as on my laptop.

As you can see, it not only covers the blocks underneath it, but also (in my opinion) ruins the look and is superflous. Imagine everytime you open an app it says "you are now in full screen mode". :)

Hi @brubell, any update on this? The Kiosk mode text can be seen at the top of the image I uploaded on your request. I personally find it superflous. Is it just me who has this, and is there anyway to remove it? Thanks :)

Thanks for all the feedback. We've removed the kiosk notification and added a notice on the sharing modal how to exit kiosk mode instead.

You may need to refresh your browser to get the latest changes.

Thanks!
