Web Clip configuration (iOS user policy)

With the Web Clip configuration you define Web Clips to be added to the Home screen of user devices. Web Clips provide fast access to favorite web pages. But you can also add a Web Clip with a support phone number for example, to provide a quick way to dial the helpdesk.

Setting Description
Description A description for the Web Clip.
URL The web address of the Web Clip.
Can be removed If the check box is cleared, the user cannot remove the Web Clip. It cannot be deleted from the device unless the user removes the policy that installed it.
Full screen The Web Clip is opened full screen on the device. A full screen Web Clip opens the URL as a web app.
Show external pages in full-screen

Stay in full-screen mode when the user goes from the Web Clip to other web pages.

If you clear the checkbox, the browser appears.

Browser app

Select the browser app to open the Web Clip.

You can choose from all apps installed on your managed iPhones and iPads.

If you select Device default, the Web Clip opens in the default browser app configured on the device.

If you select an app that can’t open web pages or an app that’s unavailable on a device, the Web Clip opens in Safari.


Select an image to be used as the Web Clip icon on the Home screen. This must be a PNG, GIF or JPEG image with a maximum file size of 1 MB.

The image is cropped to a square and scaled to match the display resolution. For best results, we recommend that you use an image of size 180 px by 180 px.

When a favicon is defined in the HTML code of the web page, the device might display that favicon as Web Clip icon. This happens for certain web pages only, depending on how the favicon is configured in the web page code.
