    Hi,

    My first post on this forum which I find myself coming back to over and over.

    I intend to develop an app to display extra information for an exhibition of artifacts.
    The app will run on an android tablet and I would like a way to stop users exiting my app to the home scree or getting out of my app.

    I have seen something similar done with kid apps where you have to press a specific key combination to exit, even better would be a pin or password to exit the app.

    Is this possible?

    Or would another option be to lock down the whole os so only my applicatino can be run?

    You'd have better luck in a developer forum. There may be some developers here but it's really a user forum.
