Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

You can push URLs to Android and iOS devices as Web Apps. These apps will be displayed as icons on device screens such that they will open up the desired websites on tapping them.
The web app has to first added to the Hexnode app inventory before they are deployed to the devices via a policy. For adding the app to inventory:

  • Navigate to Apps tab-> Apps and click on the +Add apps icon, a configuration window will appear.
  • Choose a name, URL, category and icon for the web app. Click Add.

The web app is now added to the Hexnode app inventory. Multiple web apps can be created in this manner. You can now deploy the app to devices via policy.
In case of Android devices, navigate to Policies-> Kiosk Lockdown-> Android Kiosk Lockdown-> Single App/Multi-App and click Configure. Add created web app and click Done. Associate targets and save the policy. Check out the help doc on adding web apps to Android devices for more info.
In case of iOS devices, navigate to Policies-> Kiosk Lockdown-> iOS Kiosk Lockdown-> Web App and click Configure. Add the created web app and configure the other options. Associate targets and save the policy. Check out the help doc on Adding web apps to iOS devices for more info.
