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 the mobile Yandex.Browser you can allow or block notifications from a particular website or block notifications from all websites.

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

Block and 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 this 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   → Settings.
  2. In Notifications, tap Notifications from sites.
  3. Disable the Notifications option.

Reset notification settings

If you want to reset all your notifications settings:

  1. Tap   → Settings.
  2. In Notifications, tap Notifications from sites.
  3. Tap Clear website settings.

This clears the lists of websites with allowed and blocked notifications and leaves them empty. If you go to a website that was on the list, it will ask you again for permission to send notifications.
