Catalina - Disable iCloud Bookmarks

Information

The macOS built-in Safari.app bookmark synchronization via the iCloud service _MUST_ be disabled.

Apple's iCloud service does not provide an organization with enough control over the storage and access of data and, therefore, automated bookmark synchronization _MUST_ be controlled by an organization approved service.

Solution

This is implemented by a Configuration Profile.

allowCloudBookmarks:
False
