KB15242 - How to use IT policy rules to hide browsers on the BlackBerry smartphone

Environment

  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server
  • BlackBerry smartphone



Overview

The Browser application supports multiple browser configurations including the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) Browser, the Internet Browser, and the BlackBerry® Browser. For more information about the browser configurations available on BlackBerry smartphones, see KB05483.
The following IT policy rules can be used to disable the browser configurations on the BlackBerry smartphone.
To disable the WAP Browser:
  1. Click on Device-Only Items.
  2. Set Enable WAP Config to False.
To disable the Internet Browser:
  1. Click on Browser policy group.
  2. Set Allow IBS Browsers to False.
If the MDS Browser Use Separate Icon rule is set to True, and Allow IBS Browser is set to False, the browser is not disabled. Instead, one icon on the BlackBerry smartphone is hidden.
To disable all Internet Browsing Service (IBS) and WAP carrier browsers:
  1. Click on Service Exclusivity Policy Group.
  2. Set Allow Other Browser Services to False.
This IT policy rule changes the Default Browser on the BlackBerry smartphone to the BlackBerry Browser with no other browser available on the BlackBerry smartphone.
To disable the BlackBerry Browser:
  1. Click on Global Items.
  2. Set Allow Browser to False.



Additional Information

The Allow Other Browser Services and Enable WAP Config IT Policy rules can affect Multimedia Message Service (MMS) messages because many carriers use WAP for MMS messaging. See KB11766 for more information.
