  • To remove a bookmark, swipe the bookmark from left to right, and then tap the Done button that appears.

Printing and Sharing Links over Twitter, Facebook and Email

Tap the right arrow icon for options to print, share by email, Twitter or Facebook, or enter a code to temporarily bypass filtering.

Blocked Pages and Temporary Bypass

If you browse to a web page that is not allowed by your organization's policies, you'll see a block page. You can use the Temporary Bypass feature for when you're in an airport, hotel or internet cafe if you need to access a page to connect to the Wi-Fi network. Access Temporary Bypass by tapping the right arrow icon.
