Morton, Ill. – May 5, 2014 – Float Mobile Learning today announced the release of Sandbox Web Browser™ for Android. Sandbox gives users access to a predefined list of websites – also known as a whitelist – making it the ideal application for businesses, kiosks, libraries, schools and stores who need to restrict Web browsing in certain environments.

“Granting full Web access to your users can be problematic for a variety of reasons,” said Chad Udell, managing director of Float. “The ability to whitelist websites with Sandbox means those in charge of the device have complete control over what users have access to. For example, parents and teachers can say what websites their children or students visit, system administrators can dictate which sites are appropriate for work, and kiosk curators can ensure a pleasant experience for all users by preventing them from leaving the desired site.”

Sandbox, available on all Android devices, boasts the following features:

  • Compatibility with smartphone and tablet devices
  • Restricted profile support
  • Lock configuration settings with a passcode to prevent users from making changes to settings or access permissions
  • Easily add bookmarks for approved sites
  • Customize the appearance of user interface items
  • Automatically return to preset home page after device has been idle for specified amount of time

    Can I add subdomains to the white list using an asterisk or something? Or do I have to add every subdomain page individually?

    • Daniel Pfeiffer says:

      Hi Dawn,
      If you want to allow all subdomains, you can simply whitelist the top-level domain. For example, whitelisting “google.com” would also whitelist images.google.com, news.google.com, and so on.
      Hope that helps!
      –Daniel

    Hi, great app – just one issue, unable to download attachments (ie. PDFs, XL, etc).
    Will this be added?

  3. sammy says:

    I would to be able to export the domains, so that if I ever reset my phone then I would be able to import them all at once. Is that possible?

  4. sammy says:

    Is it possible to add more than twenty sites to the domain whitelist?
