Other sites

Websites can send notifications about news, comments, updates, and other events. Sites usually 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 specific website, or disable notification prompts for all websites.

When you first open a website that sends notifications, Yandex Browser asks 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.

Allow or block notifications from a site
  1. Tap in the browser (if you don't see this button, press the menu button on your smartphone).
  2. Tap About the site.
  3. Enable or disable Notifications from this site.
Prevent sites from suggesting notifications
  1. Tap in the browser (if you don't see this button, press the menu button on your smartphone).
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Under Notifications, tap Notifications → Site notifications.
  4. Turn off the Notifications option.

After that, websites will not offer notifications anymore. Sites that you have already allowed to send notifications will continue sending them. You need to block notifications for each site individually.
