Issues Running the Intune Managed Browser? See Requirements Below.

The new Intune Managed Browser allows some cool new capabilities such as whitelist/blacklist and remote wiping of browser caches. Right now it’s only available on Android, however word is that the iOS version has been submitted and is only awaiting Apple approval. If you want to give it a test run, as a word of caution, you cannot simply download it and run it, even if you have a compliant Intune Managed device. Go ahead an uninstall the browser for now and instead take the following steps:

  1. Create a Managed Browser Policy under Policy > Configuration Policies > Add
  2. Expand Software > Mobile Browser Policy (Android 4 and later) and select Create a Custom Policy

  3. Provide a Policy Name, add any whitelist/blacklist pages and hit Save Policy
