Guided Access is a feature found on iOS devices that allows you to disable certain areas of the screen or features on the device. Setting up Guided Access can be done in just a few steps:
1. Open the Settings app and tap on General.
2. Scroll down and tap on Accessibility.
3. Tap on Guided Access under Learning.
4. Turn on Guided Access by tapping the toggle switch next to it.
5. Set a passcode by tapping on Set Passcode under Security. You will need this passcode to turn off Guided Access later, so make sure to choose something you will remember!
6. Choose whether you want Touch or Face ID to turn off Guided Access as well by tapping on either option under Allow access when locked.
Now that Guided Access is set up, you can start using it whenever you need! To do so, just triple click the home button while in an app (or quadruple click if you have an iPhone X) and then select which options you would like to disable before starting your session
What are the benefits of using Guided Access on Android?
When you enable Guided Access, you can control which features are available. For example, you might disable the Home button to prevent a child from leaving an app. Or you might limit touch input to certain areas of the screen.
You can also use Guided Access to temporarily restrict access to your device. For example, if you hand your device to a friend for them to use for a short time, you can turn on Guided Access and specify which apps they’re allowed to open. And when they’re done using your device, you can end Guided Access with just a few taps.
How does Guided Access on Android work?
Assuming you’re referring to the Guided Access feature on Android devices:
Guided access is a built-in accessibility feature that allows people with disabilities such as autism to use mobile devices. It limits users to specific apps and features of those apps, so they can focus and stay on task.
To set up guided access, go to your device’s Settings menu >Accessibility > select Guided Access from the list. Then, turn on the switch at the top of the screen. You can also choose whether or not to require a passcode to exit guided access mode.
Once guided access is turned on, you can open any app and triple-click the home button (or other assigned buttons) to start guided access for that app. When you do this, you’ll see options for limiting access to certain features of the app – like touch input, hardware buttons, or notifications. Once you’ve selected the desired options, click Start in the top right corner of the screen.
To end guided access mode and return to normal usage, triple-click the home button again and enter your passcode (if you enabled that setting).
What are some tips for using Guided Access on Android?
Assuming you’re referring to the built in screen lock/keyguard feature:
To enable Guided Access, go to Settings>Accessibility>Touch and Hold Delay. Turn off the delay or set it to Short. Now when you triple-click the Home button, your iPhone or iPad will ask if you want to start a Guided Access session or enter Guided Access without starting a session (see screenshot below).
If you choose Start Session, you’ll need to do two things before proceeding:
1) Decide which app you want to limit your device to. The easiest way to do this is probably by opening the app first and then triple-clicking the Home button. When the recently used apps appear at the bottom of your screen, swipe right until you get back to the home screen; this will cause all of the recently used apps except for the one you’re currently in to disappear, effectively trapping your device in that particular app. If necessary, tap Don’t Allow on any Touch ID prompts that appear.
2) Once you’re sure which app you want to use, click Options in the lower left corner of your screen. Here’s where we decide how restrictive our guided access session is going — there are three different types of restrictions we can place on an iOS device using guided access:
– Feature Restrictions: This is where we disable certain hardware buttons or features while using a particular app; for example, we could disable volume controls so that a user couldn’t accidentally exit out of an app by pressing too hard on the side button OR prevent someone from leaving an educational app by disabling control center and notification center access as well as multitasking gestures (iPad only).
– Time Limits: If we wanted can also set timers for individual apps so that users only have limited amounts of time with each one; this could be helpful if, say, we wanted students to spend no more than 30 minutes on a reading comprehension exercise but didn’t want them worrying about checking clocks or keeping track themselves.
– App Whitelisting & Blacklisting: Finally, under Options we also have the ability white-list/black-list individual apps; whitelisted apps are those which can be accessed even while guided access is enabled (thus bypassing any sort of timer), while blacklisted apps cannot be opened at all while guided access is turned on — meaning they can act as sort of break periods between work sessions if included amongst otherWhitelisted apps.
How to troubleshoot Guided Access on Android?
If you’re having trouble with Guided Access on your Android device, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the issue. First, make sure that Guided Access is turned on in your device’s Settings menu. Then, try restarting your device. If that doesn’t work, try resetting your device to its factory settings.
