Restricting Keyboard Setup Assistant


In our academic labs and the library, peripherials especially keyboards tend to grow legs and walk away.

Restricting Safari


Restricting Safari or certain Safari features in an organization, school, or enterprise environment might be necessary for a few reasons:

  1. Security: Limiting Safari features or disabling the browser altogether can help minimize potential security threats from malicious websites, phishing attempts, and malware.
  2. Compliance: Organizations may need to comply with industry-specific regulations or internal policies that require them to restrict or control web browsing activities.
  3. Alternative browsers: An organization may choose to restrict Safari if they prefer using another browser with better management capabilities, security features, or compatibility with their specific infrastructure.
