Hi Everyone,

Maybe someone has had a similar case and can help me out to find a solution...

Situation:
1. I have hundreds of tablets, with Android OS on them and AT&T sim cards - all tablets use the same email in profile (required to be done so);
2. I need to give them to employees while restricting the access to everything but two specific apps (have to pay for internet traffic, and the more access they have, the more $ we have to pay);
3. I need to be able to update the apps remotely, from a PC, without bringing the user back to me to do so manually or without the user knowledge;

I know there's TeamViewer, but it is not an option, as when I have to update the app from the PC, the user most likely see the unlock pattern, and therefore, it might end badly for us.
Auto-update not an option either.

Is there any other app that I can use while maintaining the anonymity of the remote control?

Kindle has the kid mode where you can allow only certain apps to be used and limit quite a bit of features/etc. :-)
I am not sure I understand the requirement to update the apps.

You can look into AirWatch (my employer uses that to spy on my iPhone and Android) or you can try ATT's solution since you are using their SIMs (maybe it will be free?) https://www.business.att.com/solutions/ ... -security/ and specifically: https://www.business.att.com/content/pr ... -brief.pdf


Edit, also found Monitordroid and this: http://www.freshtechtips.com/2016/02/re ... ablet.html

I found Soti MobiControl - http://soti.net
can be used both for iOS and for Android, and I believe they have support for windows phones too.
Subscription costs 48$/year per device (server on the cloud), but the more devices, the higher the discount.
You can basically close access to everything, and build a custom page that will be displayed on the tablet. You can give access to only specific settings, while the others will be turned off. You can update, delete, and basically do everything without the user's knowledge, and this is what I need. If you have 300-400 devices as I do, it is great to upload an update package and send to all devices to update at once. I really loved the app and how thorough it is. Definitely a tool to "spy" on your employees.

On the other side, 48$/year + paying for data...I don't think it's worth it...T-Mobile offers 10$/month per SIM for the unlimited Internet with 2GB at higher speed, over at a slower speed...
and since I need to lock the devices specifically to "save" on data, then I'd rather use T-Mobile :)
