Advanced Internet Kiosk Editor's Review

Computer are absolutely everywhere now – many more places than just in your home. Computer can be found in cafés, libraries, and many more locations. However, these computer are shared between many different members of the public, so it is important for the administrators to help make sure the systems are not used for unauthorised reasons, such as to modify settings or intentionally break into the system. Advanced Internet Kiosk is an application that will let you turn a normal computer into a dedicated Internet Kiosk PC, limiting members of the public to only use the system for its designed purpose, whilst giving the administrators the full control they need.

The first thing you need to do after installing Advanced Internet Kiosk is set up the security aspect, that being a master password for the application, a time encoding keyword, and establish a username to be set as the controlling user. Once this is done, you can start to apply restrictions to the system.

The first set of restrictions allow you to enable and disable certain keys on the keyboard, for example, the F buttons, Windows key, Tab button, etc. This may be especially useful as it prevents more advanced or knowledgeable users from using specific key combinations to attempt to override the security that has been put in place. You can also enable and disable the use of the power button and sleep button, to try and prolong system up time as much as possible.

If there are specific applications you want the public user to be able to assess on your Internet Kiosk, such as WordPad or Paint, you can use the Shortcuts menu to add this to the secure desktop. First of all, select the Shortcut Type, in this case and applications, and then specify the title you want added to the shortcut, along with a link to the application. If you want the application to launch automatically at public logon, select the auto run box. Similarly, if you want to provide access to a specific URL, you can enter the link and specify how the URL should open, in a secure manner. For example, in full screen mode only, or so that it cannot be closed by the user.

Time code allows you to generate a logon code that only allows the user a session of so long. Enter the number of minutes you want to allow, for example 30, and Advanced Internet Kiosk will automatically generate you a code which you can give out. After logon, the user will automatically be logged off from the session when their time is up. This is a particularly useful feature for organisations such as internet cafés who may experience queues to access their internet kiosks.

You can customize the appearance of the Advanced Internet Kiosk desktop, by means of showing of hiding the application bar at the bottom of the screen. You can also tell Advanced Internet Kiosk to simulate a more familiar regular desktop experience with clickable icons too and specify a font for it to incorporate. For a more professional organisation, you might want to specify your own background image, which is used for each public logon.

Advanced Internet Kiosk includes its own Safe Browser, which can be used to determine how the internet is used. Limitations can be put in place, such as users cannot visit certain websites, or users can only view specific websites. This works well, however if you allow access to other browsers such as Internet Explorer or Firefox, the limitations will not be carried over, therefore if you want to limit access to certain websites, using the Safe Browser is necessary.

Finally, some miscellaneous security restrictions can be put in place, such as disabling the use of the Recycle Bin and hiding hard drives, further protecting your system.

Overall, Advanced Internet Kiosk appears to be an effective way to help manage and maintain computer systems that are accessible by the public. The application as a whole isn’t the most user friendly, therefore some background knowledge or googling may be necessary for a less experienced computer administrator, especially through the process of setting up a controlling user and so on. However, on the whole, Advanced Internet Kiosk does as expected, and could be a vital tool to some organisations and businesses. Overall, I’d rate it 3.5/5.
