How to Use Kiosk Mode in JotForm Mobile Forms

We're excited to introduce a new great feature included in our reinvented mobile app — kiosk mode. You can use this feature on a smartphone or tablet, whether you're online or offline. Kiosk mode is available for both iOS and Android.

Kiosk mode turns your device into a survey station. Kiosk mode with Screen Lock gives form respondents access only to a specific form and doesn't allow access to other apps. You can easily and securely receive multiple form submissions. This is a great choice for conferences, fundraisers, social events, trade shows, meetings, other types of events, and onsite and offsite data collection.

The form automatically returns to the start page after each submission. The sessions are completely separate, so the data is secure.

You can collect form entries even if you're offline. The data is stored on your device and automatically syncs with your JotForm account once you have an internet connection.

To enable kiosk mode, click on your form.


Select the Open in Kiosk Mode.


Choose between the Continue with Screen Lock and Continue without Screen Lock options. The screen lock option will not allow the user to close kiosk mode.


If you select the screen lock option, you will need to set a four-digit PIN. You must enter the PIN to close kiosk mode.


After you make your selection, the app will give you instructions about how to close kiosk mode.


While in kiosk mode, the form will show a Thank You Page for five seconds after a submission, and then it will auto restart. See it in action below.

    is there a landscape enable-feature? The language selection is bumped too high up and is inaccessible in portrait view for kiosk mode.

    I've tried Kiosk mode severally but whenever I try to submit the Form it continues sending or processing submission without showing the thank you page. We thought the kiosk mode could help particularly where there is no network. Please advise

    Thank you for sharing this informative article. I hope this article will be able to help a lots of people and business owners in the future.

    I have a condition to the thank you page - the message changes and it's this condition related message that won't display over the kiosk message of 'refresh this form' etc. Can I change this?

  • Troods

    the message I have set up displays for barely a second and then it displays a message that the form will refresh in 5 and counting down seconds. How can you have your message display so people can have time to read it?

    What am I doing wrong? While in Kiosk mode "LOCKED SCREEN" - anyone can still access my iPad but clicking the HOME button. Is it only locked from JOTFORM and not my whole iPad??

  • JaroTurek

    I tried to use the kiosk on my phone in the offline mode and after the submission was made I got an"error loading page" code number 1009 message due to "internet connection being offline". At that point I wasn't able to get out of the page and I had to virtually delete the application from my phone an upload it again. I did go to the settings and selected the form I wanted to use when offline. Can you please help with this?

  • Robert Sjursen

    Is kiosk mode supposed to work offline as well? The first form is successfully submitted but then reload fails with the error message "internet disconnected".

  • Sarah Humphries

    Would be great if Kiosk mode would allow multiple forms to be available. Have reviewed the workaround but it doesn’t display very neatly

    I am very excited about the jotform mobile app and so many of it's features, especially the Kiosk mode and offline forms.

    Is it possible to change the restart form timing in Kiosk Mode?

    I would really like to make it shorter.

    Thank you in advance,

  • jsanz

    It is possible to make a kiosk mode session where two or more forms are available? Thanks in advance.
