Device usage modes (auto-logging out of app)

Bodyswaps offers three usage modes in the app designed to assist in particular deployment situations. Specifically this affects how the app behaves regarding users logging in or out of and saved progress data.


(Previously: Personal device)

This is for learners that are using their own device or one assigned to them for an extended period of time. This is the default usage mode in Bodyswaps.

The user will remain signed in until they explicitly sign out

The user will play the induction sequence once - the first time they launch a module


(previously: Shared Device Mode 1)

This is designed for when a device is shared between users, typically for a workshop or a when a device is booked in a library.
Users will be signed out when the app is first launched.
Users are asked to 'Sign Out' or 'Continue' prior to launching a new module or after twenty minutes of inactivity.

Users will be signed out when a user leaves a module or at the end of each module.
