Controller Captive Portal: bypass Aplle succes, Android fails

We have Captive Portal in Controller and a REDIRECT URL for marketing.


Using a Capitve Portal on the MC7024 we enable ByPass Apple NAC - so clients have to open Safari and trigger HTTP request - so in Safari they automatically will be shown the Captive Portal, then hitting connect button in Safari we are redirecting to the external marketing page.


But using an Android - Galaxy S6  for example - during 'selecting the WiFi network' it connects and then it Pop Up a screen that shows the Captive Portal. Then hitting the connect button - it wants to redirect - but then closes this popup and nothing happens. Going to Chrome, and want to browse - it does not show the redirect URL but the URL we want to browse.


So is there a way to bypass this Android kind of NAC?
