Introduction to ProSurf Browser for iOS

ProSurf Browser for iOS is a customized browser which can be used to provide a secure and restricted browsing experience. It can be used like a Kiosk Browser when set in Single App Mode or dynamically set to run in Single App Mode using ASAM, or to simply provide a customized browsing experience. 

Although iOS devices come pre-loaded with Safari, there are limited options to control it via MDM. This is where ProSurf adds value by giving you a wide range of options to meet your organizational needs. Some of the salient features are,

  • Disable Address bar & Navigation bar and hide the Notification bar.
  • Whitelist unlimited URL's, set custom properties for these URL's.
  • Set ProSurf to run in Single App Mode and set a URL as the default URL.
  • Integrated File Viewers for downloaded files.
  • Set Triggers so that ProSurf can dynamically enter/exit out of Single App Mode.
  • Javascript API to programmatically enter/exit single app mode from your website.
ProSurf is free to use during the Trial period. However post the trial period, ProSurf for iOS is available only in MobiLock Enterprise Plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Can I have both Safari and ProSurf enabled on my devices?

Answer: Yes you can. However having both of them enabled does not add much value and in some cases the settings may conflict. We would suggest using one browser at a time.

Question: Does ProSurf or MobiLock collect any personal data like usernames, passwords, location or read the website content?

Answer: No. We do not collect any personal data including usernames, passwords or location history. In future, we do intend to collect information related to the page load times and/or browsing history as an Opt-In feature, so that we can share those analytics only with you.
