Did you know that iOS has a feature built into it that you can use to stop guests from leaving Wifibooth?
It’s called Guided Access, and it solves a whole bunch of problems including guests accidentally swiping open Notification Center (from the top), or Control Center (from the bottom). It disables the home button but makes it still easy for you to get out of the app if you need to, by triple-pressing the home button and entering a password.
How to turn it on
- Open the Settings App, touch General, then touch Accessibility
- Scroll to the very bottom of the Accessibility list, to find Guided Access near the bottom
- Turn on Guided Access. You’ll be prompted to make a passcode
- Open Wifibooth
- Activate Guided Access by pressing the home button three times in a row. Now guests can’t hit the home button or use notification center! To turn off Guided Access, touch the home button three times in a row again.
