    Hi,
    I don't own an Android 4.3 tablet yet but I need to know the following things.
    I wanted to restrict my device so that a user is unable to change any settings (in particular turn on/off WiFi) and disable all applications except one.
    How strict is the restriction?
    If I disable all apps except one what will the restricted user be able to do?

    In an ideal scenario I'd like the restricted user to do only 3 things:
    a) turn the tablet on/off
    b) turn the application of my choosing on/off
    c) all other options would be disabled
    d) the restricted user should NOT see any data of the administrator

    Thanks in advance for the anser

    I just created a restricted profile on my Nexus 7 2
    I was able to restrict the user to access all the apps except: Calendar, Currents, Email, G+ Photos, Gmail, Google+ and other default apps
    The only restriction in changing settings is about "Let apps use your location information" and I couldn't find a way to restrict the user to access WiFi settings or other settings

    I think, we should expect some improvements for Restricted Profiles in KitKat 4.4

    I got my hands on Nexus 7 as well and created the restricted profile in Android 4.3. The "Settings" option is always ON - and cannot be turned off. It would be cool to disable WiFi entirely for some users..... but for now it's apparently impossible.
