How to exit Single Application Mode in SureLock?

Single Application Mode is a powerful feature in SureLock (Android version). In this mode SureLock allows one and only one application to remain in the foreground all the time. Any attempt by the user to access any other application or functionality is blocked. Actually the user cannot even access anything other than the allowed application. Single Application Mode strictly locks down the Android tablet or Smartphone. Side-effect of this feature is that it does not leave an easy way for the administrator to quit SureLock or to modify its settings. But there is a solution.

Steps to quit SureLock Single Application Mode:

1. Reset the device (Please check your device documentation to know the method of rebooting)
2. After the device is powered up, SureLock starts automatically
3. In Single Application Mode, SureLock waits for 10 seconds before launching the allowed application. "Please wait" is displayed during these 10 seconds.
4. When the "Please Wait" message is displayed, quickly tap on the back button 5 times
5. As a result Password dialog is displayed. Enter the password to go to SureLock Settings screen. SureLock Settings screen has an option to quit.
