Disabling Display Auto-Lock

iPadOS has a security feature which locks the display after a period of inactivity. Since the NoahFace App is designed to run at all times, you should disable this.
To do this, you should open the Settings application, select Display & Brightness, and set Auto-Lock to Never.

Enabling Guided Access

iPadOS has a security feature which stops users from closing an App or switching between Apps. Since the NoahFace App is designed to run at all times, you should enable this.
To do this, you should open the Settings application, select Accessibility and Guided Access. You then:

  • Enter a passcode under Passcode Settings.
  • Set Display Auto Lock to Never.
This last setting the equivalent of the setting under Display & Brightness, but applies when the NoahFace App is running in Guided Access mode.

Note: In earlier versions of IOS this setting was under General, Accessibility and Guided Access, and was a switch called Mirror Display Auto Lock. If you are running an earlier version of IOS, you need to turn this switch on.

Starting the NoahFace App

Once you have enabled Guided Access in the iPad Settings, you need to start the NoahFace App in Guided Access mode.
To do this, start the App as normal, and then, once it is running, triple-click the iPad home button. When you do this, you will see the text Guided Access Started appear in the middle of the screen for a few seconds.
If you later want to exit Guided Access mode, you just triple-click the home button again, enter your Guided Access passcode, and select End.

Note: If you are running an iPad Pro, then Guided Access is started by triple clicking the power button.
