The Chrome Browser Settings profile helps you to manage settings for the Work Chrome app. Configuring this profile will not affect the user's personal Chrome app. You can push this profile in conjunction with a separate VPN or Credentials+Wi-Fi payload to ensure end-users can authenticate and log in to your internal sites and systems. This will ensure that users must use the Work Chrome app for business purposes.

To configure Chrome Browser Restrictions:

  1. Navigate to Devices > Profiles & Resources > Profiles > Add > Add Profile > Android.
  2. Select Android for Work .
  3. Configure the profile's General settings as appropriate.

    These settings determine how the profile deploys and who receives it. For more information on General settings, see Add General Profile Settings.

  4. Select the Chrome Browser Settings payload and configure the settings as desired.
