System Requirements

Features and Pricing KidCheck Store

KidCheck has a very modest list of requirements for the computers being used to run children’s check-in. To have the best possible experience the recommended system requirements are below.

Computers used for administration and accessing information can be any platform and simply need to have a web browser and internet connection.

A wired network connection is recommended for computer-based (Windows/Mac) check-in stations. Wired network connections can dramatically help the performance of computer-based check-in stations by reducing signal interference and speed variance.  Learn more by reading our Wired And Wireless Networks Article.
