How to enable push notifications

    • How to enable push notifications on an Android smartphone

      Since a significant share of the market is occupied by Android smartphones, first we will look at how to enable push notifications in this operating system. The method may vary slightly depending on the manufacturer and OS version, but in general it is usually the same.

      By default, the system asks for permission to send push notifications to newly installed applications. Although some manufacturers put restrictions that require additional settings.

      So how to enable push notifications if they do not work?

      1. First go to your phone’s settings. This is usually a gear icon or something similar.
      2. After that, go to the "Applications" section.
      3. Here, find the application from which you do not receive notifications.
      4. The menu of this application should have a tab “Notifications”. Here you need to give permission to send notifications.

      Please note: some manufacturers add a separate item “Notifications” to the settings section, where you can more accurately configure push notifications and turn them on / off faster.
      If after such manipulations nothing has changed, and setting up push notifications did not give the desired result, it is possible that this is in power saving mode. We recommend that you study the issue in more detail, because some Chinese smartphone brands block sending pushes in the standard performance mode or require the issuance of additional permissions for each application. Read this information online before setting up push notifications.

      How to set up push notifications on an iOS device

      In general, systems in recent years have become quite similar. But there are still some differences in how to enable push notifications. Like Android smartphones, after installing a new application and launching it, the system will ask for permission to send notifications. If permission is not immediately obtained, follow our recommendations on how to enable push notifications.

      1. First, open your phone’s settings. By default, they are on the first desktop (gear icon);
      2. Next, go to the "Notifications" section. It is located closer to the top of the menu.
      3. Here it’s enough to select the applications for which you want to enable or disable notifications - everything is done with one click.

      Please note: knowing how to connect push notifications on Android, you can get confused in a similar task on iOS. The fact is that on iPhone, most application settings are placed in a separate menu in the phone settings section, while on Android a lot of parameters are configured directly from the application. Therefore, you must first understand where to find push notifications, and only then how to enable push notifications.
      Also recall that some applications do not support push notifications at all. Therefore, they may simply not be in the list of programs for settings.

      How to enable push notifications in the browser

      1. First go to the settings section. Click the three dots in the upper right corner of the browser and select "Settings" in the menu that appears.
      2. Scroll down the list of settings that appears and click the "Advanced" button to access the rest of the settings.
      3. Here, click the "Content Settings" button, which is located under the "Privacy and Security" section.
      4. Here, select the "Alerts" item.
      5. In the menu that opens, you can choose whether the browser will ask for permission to send notifications from sites, and also more accurately choose which sites will send you their notifications. This helps to unsubscribe from the newsletter, which is not relevant for you, leaving only the most important.

      Now you know where to look for push notifications and how to work with them. If you use Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, or other browsers, you can repeat the above algorithm of actions taking into account the specifics of your browser. But we recommend pre-reading on the Internet where to find push notifications and how to configure them in your browser. By the way, pay attention to the browser version, as the features of the settings may vary.

      Also recall that even if you use synchronization in the browser, permission to send push notifications must be granted again each time you reinstall the browser. To do this, visit the site you are interested in, wait for the dashboard to appear asking if you want permission to send notifications, open the push notification and click "Allow". After that, the site will be able to send you notifications directly in the browser, which is very convenient. Even if you are offline now, a notification will come the moment you start the browser again.

      We hope that now you better understand where the notification settings are located, how to work with them, enable or disable as you wish.
