I recently made Sophos my default browser but when I open Chrome it's still showing my previous default browser. Can anyone tell me why it's not showing or loading? Thank you in advance for your help and support.
Please confirm the Sophos product you are using on your machine.
Could you please provide answers to below-mentioned questions:
1. Name of the last default browser.
2. How chrome gets opened? Through someone provided a link for any website?
In reply to Jasmin:
1)-My default browser was duckduckgo (default
and current search engine is duckduckgo).
2)- Chrome is opened with my home page; .
My reason for asking this question is in the Sophos Settings (web filtering) Sophos Mobile security is listed in the Browsers so I selected it as my default but Chrome settings still show duckduckgo as being default, so it's what I'm not understanding clearly. Thank you
In reply to Sarecee22:
Sorry, but I am getting confused here. Sophos provides a browser which comes with Sophos Secure Workspace.
I am assuming here that when you say chrome has different settings, it means Google chrome browser has duckduckgo as a default Search engine which is obvious as Sophos can't be set as a search engine for Google chrome.
In Sophos Mobile Security, protected browsers are mentioned under the Web filtering settings which shows that below-mentioned browsers are protected through the web filtering.
Please let me know where I am incorrect in my understanding and if possible also provide the screenshot of your web filtering settings.
I'm sorry for the late reply but I was trying to send you a screenshot of my Android settings-All Apps-Default Apps- Sophos Intercept X For Mobile is selected as my Default Browser. Apparently I'm not able to add a screenshot because I've tried, which would make what I'm saying easier to understand. It's not an issue for me, I was a little confused by it because I wasn't aware of the Sophos Browser. Please correct me if I'm wrong but I'm assuming that it's my browser by default because the Web Filtering is ON. I would like to know if there is a way I can send you a screenshot because I haven't found a solution so far.
Though it says Default Browser is Sophos, my home page/start page still opens with
Duckduckgo in Chrome (this is what's confusing for me). Thank you for your help Jasmin.
Sophos Intercept X for Mobile in the default application can be selected but it is useful when you have link checker setup in the Sophos Intercept X for mobile. Sophos Intercept X for Mobile is actually not a browser but when you have any link in the SMS or any photos, etc, these will go through the Intercept X for Mobile for malware check.
Duckduckgo is an engine which will be in place with Google browser when you'll open it. It is normal behaviour even if Intercept X for mobile is set to the default browser.
