# WebView Policies## OverviewWebView supports a subset of Chrome's policies, that can be set via the[App Restrictions] mechanism. They are read on the embedder app itself ratherthan from a centralized location. That gives administrator more flexibility andgranularity, but to apply a global policy, it has to be set separatelyon each app.The policies will be applied to WebViews used inside the targeted apps withouthaving to modify the apps themselves. No special WebView APIs have been addedto expose policy information. If developers want to change their app's behaviordepending on that, they can [read them] as they have access to theApp Restrictions.Please see the [Policy List on chromium.org] for more information and thelist of supported policies.
