AirWatch Launcher is an app launcher that enables you to lock down Android devices for individual use cases and customize the look and behavior of managed Android devices. The AirWatch Launcher app replaces your device interface with one that is custom- tailored to your business needs.

You can configure Android 6.0 Marshmallow and later devices as corporate-owned, single-use (COSU) mode. COSU mode allows you to configure devices for a single purpose such as kiosk mode by whitelisting supported internal and public applications. COSU mode is supported for Single App mode, Multi App Mode, and Template Mode. For more information on deploying AirWatch Launcher profile in COSU mode, see the AirWatch Launcher Guide.

To configure the settings of the AirWatch Launcher profile:

  1. Navigate to Devices > Profiles & Resources > Profiles > Add > Add Profile > Android .

  2. Configure the profile's General settings.

    These settings determine how the profile deploys and who receives it. For more information on General settings, see Add General Profile Settings.

  3. Select the Launcher profile.
  4. Select app mode:
