Once you've installed YAPI's iPad app and set up security features within it, you may also want to configure Guided Access on your iPad to ensure patients stay within the YAPI app when using it and can't access your other apps. Below, you'll learn how to set up Guided Access and how to enable it each time you hand an iPad over to a patient.

Setting Up Guided Access
For your office team to use Guided Access, you need to set it up within your iPad's Settings:
Open Settings on your iPad and tap Accessibility on the left.
Locate and select Guided Access on the right.
Next to Guided Access, push the toggle to the right so that it's green (enabled).
Next to Accessibility Shortcut, push the toggle to the right so that it's green (enabled).
Tap Passcode Settings, then tap Set Guided Access Passcode.
- Enter, a 6-digit passcode of your choice; then re-enter it to confirm. Save this passcode somewhere safe so that your team can enable Guided Access when passing an iPad to a patient.
Enabling Guided Access
Before handing the iPad over to a patient, a member of your team must enable Guided Access:
With the YAPI app open, triple-click the Home button. For newer iPads that that don't have a Home button, triple-click the top button.
Tap Options and enable:
- Sleep/Wake Button
- Volume Buttons
- Time Limit
Tap Start on the top to begin Guided Access.
Ending Guided Access
To disable Guided Access once the patient has returned the iPad or when a team member needs to access other apps:
Triple-click the Home button. For newer iPads that that don't have a Home button, triple-click the top button.
Enter your Guided Access passcode, then tap End.
