The Samsung phones allow us to change the default browser app to our preferred app installed on the device. We can download the browser app from the Google Play Store or Samsung App Store and set it as default.
All the links within the Samsung device will launch in the chosen default browser.
In this guide, we have shared the steps to change the default browser on Samsung smart devices.
Changing the Default Browser app on Samsung Phone
Generally, most Android devices come with Google Chrome as their default browser. However, Samsung has its browser – Samsung Internet. Here are the steps to change:
- Launch the device Settings.
- Choose the Apps tab within Settings.
- Next, tap on Default Apps.
- Now, go to the Browser app menu.
- Switch to the desired browser and set it as your default.
The location of these options might change as you use different Samsung devices. So, some devices may use the latest UI, which has the default options in the More menu. For those with old Touchwiz UI, the steps are mentioned above.
There should be little difference between the old UI and the new Samsung UI settings.
We can choose the desired browser app as default to load on our Samsung device. Tapping on any link will directly open in the selected browser app.
A few browsers for Android devices can also be considered alternatives to Samsung Internet that you can download and switch to as default.
