    Using Apple Configurator to lock down iPAD and only install Google Chrome

    You would think that would be easy....!

    Where am I going wrong?

    I cannot even see Google Chrome on the VPP app store when I log in with our VPP account?

    I am running apple configurator from a mac mini.

    I can see how to lock the iPAD's down by creating a profile - but cannot see how I push/install the google chrome app to the iPADS

    Can anyone help?

    Instead of Apple Configurator, see what you think about Meraki.

    Ah, that old Chestnut. Are you not supplied with a completely unfiltered proxy from SWGFL? I think you might have to request it but I know it can be done.

    Admitedly we never had this issue as the iPads turned up at the same time we switched over to BT.
