Default browser using setup wizard window


My mother has just got this phone.

When trying to open links from within a SMS or Whats App it wont open them in chrome - it opens them in a strange pop up window which doesnt do anything - you only have the option to close it you cant browse within it. I have tried setting up chrome as the default browser but it wont change it.


If you open a link from facebook on her phone it shows the link opened in messenger - then there is a menu option and one of the option says 'open in setup wizard'  on my own phone which is working correctly it shows as 'open in chrome'. So this small window that opens via links in Whats App or SMS is the set up wizard window. I have never seen this before and have tried everything to get it to stop with no luck.opens a link like thisopens a link like thisoption to open link in setup wizard not chrome ??!option to open link in setup wizard not chrome ??!

Re: Default browser using setup wizard window

Hi @Rocco75, I'm sorry to hear this.


Are you able to find an app called "Setup Wizard" if you go to Settings > Apps > tap menu (the three dots) > Show system? If you then I recommend that you tap on the app in the list, then disable it and try opening a link again.


Let me know if this helped! Slightly smiling Face
