Are Web Views Supported?

What is a web view?

A “web view” is a web browser that’s embedded into a mobile app, where links open inside of its own web browser built into the mobile app instead of opening in Safari or Chrome (for Android users). Any Amazon affiliate link has to open up in either the Amazon Shopping App or within your device’s native web browser, such as Safari or Chrome. Amazon links cannot be opened in an app's own web browser.

Why is the use of web views prohibited?

  • Rendering Amazon pages in web views is prohibited due to our security policy and to maintain customer trust.
