What

Want to open Web Clip URL links with Google Chrome instead of Safari with iOS/iPadOS devices? Now you can!

Unfortunately, Apple does not have a Profile payload to remotely change the default web browser on iOS/iPadOS devices. However, you may configure the Web Clip payload to open links with Google Chrome.

When/Why

FileWave administrators may create and configure the Profile payload Web Clip with URL links to open with Google Chrome. It is easy as entering a prefix before your URL link.

How

Please note that Google Chrome web browser needs to be installed successfully on the iOS/iPadOS devices for the Web Clip payload to re-direct the URL links.

Entering the URL link default will open with Safari:

Adding the prefix below will redirect the URL link to open with the Google Chrome web browser:
