It is straightforward to set up your homepage using an Android phone. If you are familiar with Android phones, you will know that all of them are similar in one way or the other.

The statement also means that changing the homepage will be the same for all Android phones, regardless of your device.
The steps below show you how to set up a custom homepage and use Google Chrome as your default browser since almost every Android user prefers Chrome over other browsers.
How to set up your custom homepage (content://com.android.browser.home/index)
The browser should be opened.
This is relatively straightforward since you need to open the browser you prefer and the browser you want, the custom homepage. You need to be aware that setting up a homepage in one browser will not automatically set it up in a different browser.
So, click on the globe or internet icon, whichever is on your phone. This should be a colorful circle for Google Chrome with a small blue circle in the middle.
You need to go to the settings.
Going to the settings is also easy; click on the three vertical dots, usually on the top-right side of the screen. Here, you will see different options that make up what your browser stands for.
- The General settings are where you should go.
You need to access this tab to change the homepage to a custom one. The most commonplace homepage settings would be in the general section. However, most browsers do not have an available section at all. In that case, follow the next step by skipping this one altogether.
- It’s best to set the home page.
Here, you need to set the homepage URL that you need as your custom homepage. The homepage tab should be in the general section of settings. Here, there would be a black space with the default translucent writings, or it would have the default website URL. If you change this, the chosen homepage will appear the next time you open the browser.
If you do not insert a valid URL, then the custom homepage will not load, so make sure to recheck the URL you have posted. Also, if you want the current homepage URL, click “Use the current page.”
After you follow all these steps, the last thing you need to do is save the homepage you have chosen.
Setting up the Chrome browser
As an Android user, you cannot end your day if you do not have a Chrome browser at hand. There is no doubt that Chrome is the most used Browser for Android, and even Apple users sometimes prefer Chrome over Safari. To set Chrome as your default browser, follow these steps
- Go to the Google service settings in your phone settings.

- Go to the “Default Apps” section.
- Navigate to the browser app for a default brand.
- Tap on the advanced default apps for the browser app.
- Now select Chrome as your go-to internet browser.
These steps will surely make your life a lot easier if you want to make a custom homepage that you frequently use a site more than your default website.
