The local web browser may expose vulnerabilities to the internet and can be an entry point for malware. If the browser is not needed, it is safer to remove it.

Do not remove the local web browser if you use Citrix StoreFront sessions.


By default, IGEL OS has a local web browser (Firefox and Chromium) installed, even if no web browser session is configured. To remove the browser:

  1. In the IGEL Setup, go to System > Firmware Customization > Features.
  2. Uncheck the Local Browser (Firefox) and Local browser (Chromium) feature.
  3. Click Apply.
  4. Reboot the device.
