To accomplish this go to iOS Configurations and make a new configuration > pick Profile Type : Settings Catalog > in Configuration Settings > search for "Blocked App Bundle IDs" and select this configuration. You can find all the system app bundle id's here: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/deployment/depece748c41/web Safari's bundel id is com.apple.mobilesafari fill that in as 'blocked bundle id'. Assign this configuration to the device.
Thank you i will try this!

I will mark as done once tested

In your restriction Policy...

Built-In Apps

Block Safari (YES)

 

This will hide safari and block it from launching.  

Unfortunately, you will also prevent any application that needs a browser from working as well.

 

If you need a browser and not full internet access, put a list of allowed URL's in the feature policy applied to the device.
