How to Enable Forced Zoom in Samsung Internet

Learn how to enable forced zoom on webpages on Samsung Internet. Along with page zoom, you can also magnify the text or font size for better reliability.

Generally, the mobile web browser can zoom the screen and view the visually miniature items. But, some websites do restrict this feature. However, the Samsung Internet browser has the feature to force zoom on such restricted sites, and it also allows to set the higher or lower text size to default on page loading.

Enable Page Zoom In and Out on Samsung Internet

Have you ever come across a website where you won’t be able to read the text due to incompatibility with a mobile browser? When such a situation happens, the first thing you might do is try to zoom the webpage.

However, some websites have unique codes preventing them from zooming in. No matter how hard you try, but won’t be able to zoom the website text. Thankfully, Samsung Internet allows you to enable force zooming in Samsung Internet.

The forced zooming on the Samsung Internet can help to increase the text size to the desired level, and I can read the text without any difficulties.

The Samsung Internet also offers a feature to enlarge the text or font size. We can set a preset level for automatically loading the magnified text size.
