A big wish of a lot of customers came true after the update of Microsoft Intune earlier this week. As from now you are able to force Web Clips (URLS) to use the Intune Managed Browser on Android and iOS devices. So this way you are able to configure corporate websites to use the Managed Browser, which is a great addition to the Intune service if you ask me! 🙂

Require a managed browser to open this link

So what happens on iOS is the following, I published the link to this blog with the option Require a managed browser to open this link (Android and iOS only) and when you try to open this web clip you will receive an error that Safari cannot open the page because of an invalid address.

Opening the web clip in the Safari Browser is blocked

When you install the Managed Browser you will see that the web clip can be started and opened in the Managed Browser.

Next step is to force the usage of the Managed Browser for certain website on instance your AD FS environment, more on that in a later stage.

Update: Read here how this works on Android devices.
