Users experience a problem that there iphone does not allow them to change the setting to show popup screens; for network changes like connecting to wifi networks in hotels? i cannot find any active option that should stop/block these pop-up screen on the iphone.no, in the iphone there is a slider with controls the pop-up boxes. This is in the network settings; and this setting can’t be changed by the user. This is a problem with some wifi services in hotels.

    Hey Cedric! You can block the popups in iOS devices, you would have to follow these steps:

    1. Go to Policies Tab.
    2. Create a New Policy or edit and existing policy.
    3. Click on iOS Settings.
    4. Click on Restrictions tab situated at the sidebar and click configure.
    5. Check the option Allow Safari, under the same option check Block pop-ups.
    6. Save the Policy and apply the policy to the required devices.

    Once this is done, the popups of the iOS devices would be blocked.

    Cheers!

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us. Happy to help.

    Yes, you can. Please navigate to the Policies tab. Create a new policy or choose to edit an existing one. Navigate to Android–>Advanced Restrictions–>Display Settings. Disable the ‘Display dialogs/windows’ option. This will block the dialogs/windows for system overlays, alerts, errors, toast messages, etc..

    Kindly use the help link for more info.

    Cheers!
