KioWare for Chrome OS is a kiosk application used with Chrome OS Kiosk Mode to secure the Chrome Operating System and activate additional interactive kiosk features. To use the Chrome devices in kiosk mode, you must first enroll your Chrome devices in your domain.
Users with the Chrome operating system activate “Chrome Kiosk Mode” on their device. You then add the KioWare for Chrome OS kiosk application to provide additional features and security not available using Chrome OS kiosk mode alone.
What can you do with KioWare for Chrome OS?

How it works:
You first need to set up Kiosk Mode on your Chrome Device.
You will need to acquire Chrome managed device licenses via a reseller.
Log into the admin console
Under Device management / Chrome management / Device settings find the section labelled “Kiosk Settings.”
Next to “Kiosk Apps,” click “Manage Kiosk Applications.” Click on “Chrome Web Store” and search for “KioWare.” Add this to the list of apps to install.
Change the Auto-Launch Kiosk App to KioWare for Chrome OS to have the app start on boot.
Save your changes.
You may need to enroll a new device.
If you are using a new Chrome device that has not been through the setup wizard, you will need to go through the wizard.
Go through the setup wizard until you get to the sign in screen, but do not sign in. Instead, press Ctrl + Alt + E to go to the enrollment screen. On the enrollment screen, enter your admin credentials from the admin console and click “Enroll device.”
You should now see the device in the admin console under Device management / Chrome devices.
Otherwise, perform a factory reset on the device.
