LearnPad Tablets for Schools: Device Usage Locking LearnPad

Locking LearnPad

April 4, 2014

LearnPad can be locked to prevent students from accessing content or settings that have not been authorised by the teacher. When locked LearnPad will block:

  • Websites that have not been authorised.
  • Applications that may already be installed on the device, but have not been approved.
  • Device settings such as Wi-Fi or screen timeouts, which might confuse other students.

The lock status of LearnPad is indicated by the padlock icon at the top of the screen.

Locked (Closed Padlock):

Unlocked (Open Padlock):

To Lock LearnPad

To Lock LearnPad simply tap the open padlock and LearnPad will lock (you can also lock LearnPads via the dashboard –see related articles).

If you are using LearnPad for the first time you will see the following notification and will need to tap activate.

Once locked, LearnPad can only be unlocked by a user with a Password or unlock QrKey. See the unlocking LearnPad guide for more details.

Please note: The first time locking process may differ for 3rd party tablets. Please refer to the instructions in other versions (Pre V271) for the extended locking process.
