Password Protect Website Access on Android Device

Kiosk lockdown is a common requirement for enterprises looking to turn their business-use devices into purpose-specific tools. But when you throw web browsing into the equation, security becomes a prime factor. Enterprises that wish to limit access to only certain websites for business use can do so by whitelisting certain URLs using SureFox.
