Note: Even though no browser is whitelisted, the webpages can be viewed. This is the web view provided by Hexnode MDM app. But there are limitations to this view. You can whitelist any browser like chrome, forefox etc to the kiosk mode to have the webpages work properly. If you want the device to be restricted to these specific websites only, you can enable the Hexnode Secure Kiosk Browser.
