Website notifications

Websites can send notifications about news, comments, updates, and other events. Usually, websites request permission to send notifications, but sometimes they can do this without permission. In Yandex Browser for Mobile, you can allow or block notifications from a particular site, or you can block notifications from all sites.

  1. Block or allow notifications from a specific site
  2. Block all notifications
  3. Reset notification settings

Block or allow notifications from a specific site

When you first open a website that sends notifications, Yandex Browser asks you whether you want to allow or block them. After you choose whether to allow or block notifications, the Notifications from site option appears in the Protect toolbar.

  1. Tap the connection status icon in the SmartBox.
  2. In the Protect toolbar that opens, enable or disable the Notifications from this site option.

Block all notifications

  1. Tap (if you don't see this button, then press the menu button on your smartphone).
  2. Select Settings.
  3. In the Notifications section, tap Site notifications.
  4. Disable the Notifications option.

Reset notification settings

If you want to reset all your notifications settings:

  1. Tap (if you don't see this button, then press the menu button on your smartphone).
  2. Select Settings.
  3. In the Notifications section, tap Site notifications.
  4. Tap Clear website settings.

This clears the lists of websites that you've allowed or blocked notifications for. If you go to a website that was on the list, it will ask you again for permission to send notifications.
