Functionality to restrict access to the Web POS data stored locally and to execute in browser actions.

It is achieved by two means:

  2. Using "Checker" third part software that creates jailed environment in the PC (like in the Internet Cafes) so that users can do only few allowed to them actions.


Chrome Kiosk Mode. How to:

To avoid the access to the chrome/chromium menu you must put the execution of the process in kiosk mode. To do that just call chrome process with the --kiosk option

"%localappdata%\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe " --kiosk "DEFAULT URL"

"%localappdata%\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe " --user-data-dir=$(mktemp -d) --kiosk "DEFAULT URL"
