Any of those help Use setOnKeyListener() on your WebView to listen to any event because onBackPreesed() is not the member of a Fragment
code :
        myWebView.setOnKeyListener(new View.OnKeyListener() {
           public boolean onKey(View v, int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {
               if (event.getAction()==KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN &&keyCode==KeyEvent.KEYCODE_BACK&&myWebView.canGoBack()) {
               return true;

I wish did fix the issue. you need to make browser a class level variable so you can access it anywhere in your page.

            return true;
            return true;


    public WebPage()

        browser = new Xamarin.Forms.WebView();

        browser.Source = "https://myurl.com";

        Content = browser;
