Launcher comes with a Cleanup function, which secures the meeting room according to your needs. There are two profiles to choose: Basic or Custom. In this article, we'll cover the Custom Cleanup profile.
The Custom Cleanup profile is best if your organisation has moderate or strict security policies. With this profile you can decide when the Cleanup should trigger and more importantly what the Cleanup should do.
How to set the Custom Cleanup profile
There are two areas in which you can set the Custom Cleanup profile:
- During first time set up.
- From the application settings, under Security > Configure Cleanup
Some other considerations when switching profiles:
- Switching to the Custom Cleanup will require the application to restart.
- A PIN is required to restart the application.
- The configuration of your Custom Cleanup profile will not be deleted when switching to the Basic Cleanup profile.
How the Custom Cleanup works
When a Cleanup is triggered, your Custom Cleanup configuration will be executed. Your configuration is based on the following functions:
System folders to empty
This option lets you choose which system folders to empty when a Cleanup is triggered. To do this, go to Security > Configure Cleanup > Default system folders and toggle folders of your choice, which includes the Downloads, Documents, Desktop and more, as illustrated below.
Other files and folders
This option allows you to choose a folder or a file from the system to delete when the Cleanup is triggered. To do this:
- Go to the application settings under Security > Configure Cleanup > Other files and folders
- Choose the Add folder or Add file option to show the system file picker.
- Choose your folder or file, the confirm.
- Your selected files and folders will appear on the list as illustrated below.
- Next time a Cleanup is run, that file or folder will be removed.
The Crendentials manager stores Windows and web credentials for signing in to websites, connected applications and networks. With the Custom Cleanup profile, you have the option to delete any stored credentials from the system. To do this:
- Go to the application settings under Security > Configure Cleanup
- Here, you will see a toggle option labelled Credentials Manager, as is illustrated below.
- When this option is on, any stored Web or Windows credentials will be deleted from the system when a Cleanup is triggered.
This Cleanup function lets you choose applications that should close when a Cleanup is run. There are two types of applications on the system, which should be considered here:
- Win32 applications – When closing a Win32 application, any local data generated by the application during the session will not be removed from the system. Use the Other files and folders Cleanup function to target specific data generated by these applications.
- UWP applications – When closing a UWP application, all local data generated by that application is automatically removed from the system.
To choose applications to close when a Cleanup is triggered:
- Go to the application settings under Security > Configure Cleanup > Close applications.
- Press Add to show a list of applications found on the system.
- Choose one or several applications from the list and add them.
- These applications will appear on the list and be closed anytime a Cleanup is triggered.
Sign out applications
Signing out applications can be crucial to maintaining privacy on a shared system. Launcher provides a function to automate the signing out of applications when a Cleanup is triggered.
To do this, go to application settings, under Security > Configure Cleanup > Sign out applications and toggle applications of your choice, as illustrated below.
This option is available for the following applications: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Bluejeans, Firefox, GoToMeeting, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard, Microsoft OneDrive, Starleaf, Webex, Zoom.
