Prevent user from zooming has disappeared?


Hi Bubblers,

In the Settings>General tab, there used to be an option to ‘Prevent User from Zooming’. It is no longer there.

Anyone know what happened and how to get it back? I really don’t want users to be able to zoom.



We deprecated that since it looks like Apple does not support disabling zoom in Safari anymore.


Any work around about this ? it’s quite important for me to prevent zooming especially in mobile webapp…:frowning:


And all the non-Apple users in the world?


This can be done in any wrapper or service (cordova builds, gonative, etc.). Plenty of articles on stackoverflow on modifying via Xcode. Did anyone try that route?


Hey, I have the same issue. Did you figure out a workaround?


Hi John,

No, not really. Just set my page size to 370 and that’s as close as I can get. Really annoying that they did that.


I am using two things to avoid letting the user zoom in:

  1. Do not set any font size less than 18
  2. On the Page HTML Header section of the mobile page I have the following code:

<meta name="viewport" content="viewport-fit=cover, width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no">

So far, even on iOS 12, my application is not “zoomable”. This also works on Android using Chrome as browser.


Hi. Use copilot’s wrapper (@copilot) with their mobile deployment services and set your input fonts to at least 16 font. You’ll have have a native feeling mobile app that will not zoom in.
