Asked a question 2 years ago

On my son's iPhone phone we have disabled Safari and made CE the only browser. However, inside his Gmail app, he can click on a link and it will give him the option to open the link in Safari. Then he can browse Safari within the gmail app. This seems like a big gap in coverage. Is there a workaround?

Where am I?

In Covenant Eyes you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

Thanks for the question, RMcD!

The workaround would be to get rid of the Gmail app and use the default Email app that comes with the iPhone. The default app will open links only within the Covenant Eyes app if Safari is disabled. This seems to be something particular with Gmail, that links can still be opened with Safari.

Hopefully that answers your question! Let me know if it doesn't or if you have any other questions I can help with.

Best regards,
