How to enable SureLock inside SureMDM

SureMDM comes with a feature wherein an admin can enable the SureLock module available inside the SureMDM Agent installed on the devices. Admins would not need to install the SureLock application separately on the devices and still use the SureLock features by just installing the SureMDM Agent on the devices, making the process of setting up the devices in kiosk mode hassle-free.

There are three ways in which you could activate SureLock inside SureMDM.


The purpose of this knowledge article is to provide a guide on how to enable SureLock inside SureMDM.




Step 1: Manual activation of SureLock in SureMDM Agent settings

  1. On the device, open the SureMDM Agent application and enter the SureMDM Agent settings.
  2. Navigate to Enable Kiosk Lockdown and select Yes.

Step 2: Pushing a Run Script job to the device(s)

  1. Login to the SureMDM console.
  2. On the SureMDM home screen, click on Jobs > New Job > Android.
  3. On the Select Job Type screen, select Run Script.
  4. Create a run script job with the below-mentioned command. 




  • True in the above command will disable the integrated SureLock on the device.
  • False in the above command will enable the integrated SureLock on the device.
  • Once done, push the job to the device(s), and the run script command will take effect.

This will get the device running in kiosk mode, with SureLock giving access to only allowed applications to the end-users on the SureLock home screen.

Step 3: Pushing the SureLock Settings Job to the device(s)

SureLock on devices can easily kick in once the admin pushes SureLock settings on the targeted device(s).

The best way to do this is by configuring a test device with all the necessary SureLock configurations and creating a SureLock Settings Job on SureMDM using the below steps.

  1. Login to the SureMDM console.
  2. Select the device that has been configured and navigate to the SureLock icon available just above the device info panel (on the top-right corner of the SureMDM console).
  3. Click on the “Save As Job” option available at the bottom of the SureLock Settings screen. Enter the job name and save it.

Once done, Go back to the SureMDM home screen and select the device(s) in the device panel on which you would like SureLock to be launched. SureLock will launch itself on the device with SureLock settings in effect.
