Introducing Cleanup Profiles
This month’s version of Launcher comes with a new way to secure your system, thanks to Cleanup profiles - you’ll have the choice between 2 profiles:
- Basic Cleanup – This profile includes the cleanup functions as you’ve always known them. No more, no less.
- Custom Cleanup – This profile unlocks new Cleanup tools like emptying folders and deleting files, as well as letting you hand-pick applications to close or sign out when a Cleanup is run. See the next page for more detail on the Custom Cleanup tools.
You’ll be asked to make your choice of profile next time you open this version, whether you’re new to Launcher or have an existing installation of the application. Which profile will you choose?
Unlocking the power of SSO
Oh and, one more thing: The Custom Cleanup profile allows Launcher to run under the current user – that’s whichever user is signed in on the Windows system. So, if your room user is domain joined and uses SSO, you’re in for treat as applications running on Launcher will already be signed in as that room user.
If you’re interested in making this function available to any or all end users in your organisation, let us know. We've got a few ideas that you might want to hear about.
Features, functions and improvements
Custom Cleanup functions
Using the Custom Cleanup profile will unlock lots of new options, let’s have a look at those in more detail:
When users disconnect | When disconnecting your mobile device or when signing out from Launcher, you'll have the option to run a Cleanup.
System folders | We're giving you the ability to choose which system folders to empty when running a device cleanup. So, whether you clear contents of your downloads folder or your desktop, the choice is yours.
Other files and folders | If the option to empty system folders doesn't do enough for you, then you can choose the exact files and folders to delete from the system when a Cleanup is run.
Credential Manager | To those of you who are concerned about vulnerabilities of the system's Credential Manager, fear not. You can now delete Credential Manager data (stored usernames, passwords and addresses) when a Cleanup is run.
Close applications | Automatically closing running applications might sound familiar, as it's a core function of the Cleanup as you know it. However, there's one key difference: With the Custom Cleanup you'll be able to choose exactly which applications should close and which should stay open.
Sign out applications | We're bringing in a completely new security option, which allows you to sign out from applications on the system. We know that most of your will find a lot of value in this new function, so we're really excited about getting it into your hands.
Browser data | Last but certainly not least is browser data. You'll now be able to delete cookies, form data, history, passwords, temp files and cache from browsers on your system.
