How do I exit/access settings?

There are two methods for exiting/accessing settings.

Method 1
Either press the hardware menu button or menu button in the top right hand corner of the screen, tap Settings and then tap "Exit to Launcher/Exit" button. Enter the default password of 0000 (zero zero zero zero) and tap OK.

If you have hidden the toolbar, by default you can automatically show the toolbar again by swiping down from the top edge of the screen. If you have turned the swipe option off please see Method 2.

Method 2
Tap anywhere within the screen 4 times in quick succession to open the password dialog. Enter the default password of 0000 (zero zero zero zero) and tap OK. Go to Admin > Exit to Launcher.

Please note, when using the multi-tap method, you must tap a minimum of 4 times very quickly.

Potential Issues (exit not working)
Some device manufacturers prevent switching of launchers programmatically which means the standard "Exit to launcher" function does not work. Device manufacturers known to have this issue are Xiaomi & Huawei however some users have reported issues with Lenovo & Acer devices. To work around this, open Kiosk Browser settings as mentioned above and then tap the gear/cog icon to open Android settings. You can then switch the home screen from within the manufacturers designated menu.
