Custom User Agent String

Feature supported in:

Kiosk Pro Plus and Enterprise versions

Providing a user agent string is one way web browsers identify themselves to websites. For example, using a user agent string for mobile Safari tells websites that the content is being loaded on an iPad.

Default: blank, defaulting to the user agent string for the current version of WKWebView

While not all sites use user agent sniffing to decide how to serve content, some choose to serve a smaller mobile site or limited functionality to phones and/or tablets based on this string.

By providing a custom user agent string, you have more control over how content is served by certain websites. Finding what works best for your kiosk will depend on the content, purpose, and design of the site itself.
