Hello Experts,

I am trying to launch a browser or app and have a predefined URL that can not be changed without a password. I then want to put the iPad into Guided Access so only that app can be used and only that URL be used. Do you know of any apps or browsers that can lock to just one site?

Thanks!

Guided Access is that app, sort of. The problem with your approach is that "helper app" to throw it into Guided Access doesn't exist and it's unlikely Apple would approve an app like that anyway as they tend to not approve things that messes with the overall user experience.

Are you trying to do this for mass market purposes or is this for enterprise deployment?

Enterprise deployment.

I just don't want the employees to browse to other sites. There has to be a way...

With Enterprise you can do a lot of it via configuration profile/MDM but not sure if you can throw it into Guided Access mode that way.

I can, but faster if you read the Apple version:

Basically MDM allows you to control the device settings in an Enterprise Deployment situation.  If there is a way to throw the device into the mode you want, MDM will be the way to do it.
