Content filter and safari browsing history

New Contributor

I need help about something :
- we filtered the content of our iPads via Jamf content filter "Built in : limit adult content"
- we add a few blacklisted url.

  • on the iPad it's now impossible to delete safari browsing history. It's grey in safari and in Settings.
  • I try to exclude an iPad from the group (content filter), now i can delete safari history again.

Have you a solution to allow to delete browser history and keep "content filter".

Yes, we need to be able to delete Safari History because student regularly select remember me when logging into Schoology and then the next student cannot get in to their account because it retains the previous students log in info.

If there a solution for this yet?

I'm not sure about 'deleting browser history and keeping "content filter"', but when the students select "remember me" you should be able to clear this in the Website Data portion of the Safari settings.97846490c77947cfb4a1f37f9f20a5cc

You could also turn off the Settings->Safari->AutoFill->User Contact Info and Names and Passwords

Good gravy. We are experiencing the same issue with losing the ability to clear Safari cache/cookies, but it appears to be something inside one of our Config Profile - Restrictions. Still trying to narrow it down further, maybe there's something specific to Safari that's killing it.

Yep, we also found out that it is due to the web content filter. Once this is enabled for the iPAds, the Safari history cannot be deleted. Apparently a thought to not be able to clear the history to be tracked by parents or anyone else.
