Zebra TC75 Kiosk mode: Enter coma display setting on google keyboard

Zebra TC75 Kiosk mode: Enter coma display setting on google keyboard

Hello all,

we have mobicontrol on version 13.3.3454

we have device zebra tc75x on version 6 with agent on version : 13.6.1476

enrolled by android +

 

we have profile with lockdown and authentification.

That's work fine.

 

After an audit of security some users can by pass the lock down by just press the COMA on google keyboard.

I join a print screen of the step.

 

 

Anyone has some idea about how to find a solution for this ?

what we can do ?

 

thanks for your time

Are they just pressing Comma and Enter as the password? Or is the problem that they're hitting that settings cog and getting out to a Settings app? It looks like the cog/gear is also circled.

 

If I was security auditing the devices I would probably fail them for using the Google keyboard in the first place. You can use the Zebra Enterprise Keyboard as a more locked down and remotely manageable alternative and it presumably won't log everything your users key in and send it to the Google servers ;)

Hello matt,

users just press the coma while more than 1 second, after this time the rear wheel icon appears.

I've try to change the language of the keyboard but same result ..

 

How we can use zebra entreprise keyboard ?

Is it possible with devices who are enrolled with android + ?

 

thanks for all Matt

Documentation for EKB is available here:

 

http://techdocs.zebra.com/enterprise-keyboard/2-0/guide/about/

 

Most Zebra devices now have EKB pre-installed as a system application so you don't need to install it but you can use StageNow MX in order to enable it, configure it, and set it as the default input method.

Can you share a screenshot of what you are seeing? The EKB does have a voice dictation option built into it that leverages Googles STT engine so that might be what you're seeing. That voice input should be able to be disabled from MX as well.

Hello all,

@matt -> thanks for your support

here is it a screen shot after have run the stage now barre code

If i look into settings, language and input -> actual keyboard is set to google voice !

 

i think the stage now is correct 

a) disable google keyboard apps

b) enable EKB for all apps

 

i will try to disable google voice also and see what happen ..

if you have a correct step i must to follow for disable google and enable zebra keyboard don't hesitate to publish it ..

 

Thanks a lot matt

Hello matt,

don't lose your time ..I've find the problem...

Of course it's was a problem between the chair and the computer :) :) 

 

when I read the document I've seen how I can disable the google keyboard with stage now

-> appMgr -> disable google keyboard

 

without READ ALL the doc about zebra keyboard I have add :

-> appMrg -> Enable zebra keyboard

 

but it's not correct all ...

for to activate zebra keyboard all is configure into UIMgr 

 

Thanks a lot for your time and sorry for my mistake ..
