My tablet set up with ATouchAway is malfunctioning, what should I do?

If you are experiencing an issue with the tablets that means you are unable to move on from the start up screen, allowing you only to Power off or Turn on, with 'aTouchAway' in one corner, it is possible someone used the “Control” feature in the app but did not use it properly.

To exit out of that User Interface, and go back to the usual app:

  1. Click on aTouchAway (in the top right corner of the screen)
  2. Enter the password aetonix456 and click on Unlock Setting
  3. Log out of this account
  4. Re-log in to the tablet account and click Save
  5. View the guidance on this page to correctly use this function
