Preventing Pinch-Zoom in Cordova on Windows 10 Mobile | Cordova

One of the most obvious ways to spot a Cordova app is a pinch-zoom inside the app. On Android and iOS you can use meta-tags and CSS to disable the pinch-zoom and over scroll. But for some reason I couldn’t get it disabled on Windows 10 mobile.

The Solution

I’ve been looking everywhere for the solution. And after a long search it turned out to be very easy. Just add the following CSS to your app:

html {
    touch-action: none;

There used to be a Microsoft vender specific version of this, but the vender part is dropped and it’s now according to the W3C standard.
