Your Emsisoft Management Console can be pinned to the home screen of your computer or mobile device by installing it as a Progressive Web Application (PWA), with support for Windows, macOS, iOS and Android. A PWA is simply a web site that can be downloaded to your device making it appear alongside your other apps for convenient access.
Installing a PWA on Android.
You can install the Emsisoft Management Console as a PWA on Android devices using the default Chrome browser. First, navigate to my.emsisoft.com in Chrome. Press the “three dot” icon in the upper right to open the menu. Select “Add to Home screen.” Press “Install app” (or “Add to Home screen”) in the drop down menu. The Management Console is now installed as a PWA and available on your home screen.
Installing a PWA on iOS.
The Emsisoft Management Console can only be installed on iOS using Apple’s Safari web browser. First, navigate to my.emsisoft.com in Safari. Then press the “Share” icon at the bottom of the screen:
Next, select “Add to Home Screen” from the popup. Lastly, tap “Add” in the top right corner to finish installing the PWA. It will now be on your home screen.
Installing a PWA on a Windows PC or Mac.
Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge currently have the best support for PWAs on Windows and Mac OS. The installation process is very similar for both browsers. First, navigate to my.emsisoft.com. There will be a PWA icon on the right side of the URL bar. Click the icon then click the “Install” button:
A second installation method is available from the menu of the browser:
On a Windows PC, the PWA will be available in the start menu. On a Mac, the PWA will be in the launcher and in the spotlight search.
