Android: WebView does not display external web pages

Question by Guest | 2016-10-08 at 19:50

I have just created my first own Android App and among other things, I am using a WebView therein to be able to show some HTML pages.

As long as I am delivering those webpages together with my App, it is working as expected. However, it is not possible to display or follow any link for showing a real website on the Internet.

What am I doing wrong? Actually I thought that this WebView is exactly made for this purpose.

Probably you have not given your app the permission to go to the Internet.

Just add the following permission to your manifest:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />

With this it should work.
