Blocking Safari Extensions via Configuration Profile

New Contributor III

Hi Jamf Nation Guru,


We managed to block extensions in Chrome and Edge on our Macs by configuring custom settings in JamfPro.

However, we couldn't find a similar solution for Safari. Have you had any success with blocking extensions on this browser?

Safari is notoriously difficult to manage. I dont think you can manage Safari extensions anymore beyond blocking the app that generates the extension. 

If I need to block a few specific extensions or apps that generates the extension, is that possible? Do you happen to have a plist or an example that I can refer to?

Can you clarify if you used a configuration profile on Jamf Pro for that?

All safari extensions should be coming from the MacApp store, if you have the mac app store blocked this should solve extensions in safari.  this can be done with a restrictions setting in a config profile.  I would recommend testing this throughly before pushing it out though in case you have users who need access to the app store.
