We built the Forcefield browser to emulate Safari and Chrome as closely as possible. Certain functions on Apple mobile devices, such as asking Siri to Google something or opening a link on an iPhone, use Safari as the default browser. If parents have opted to hide Safari on their child’s mobile device, some of these functions will not work as they did with Safari. There are many benefits that come with the Forcefield browser, such as locking in SafeSearch, YouTube Restricted Mode as well as the ability to restrict access to specific websites.
If you would like to return Safari or Chrome to your child’s mobile device and still keep all of the other Forcefield functions, please see the next FAQ which tells you how you can quickly and easily return the system browser to your child’s devices. Please note: Forcefield cannot track browsing activity on other browsers, so any websites your child visits using Safari, Chrome or other browsers will not be included in your Activity Report.
