By default, any website that uses push technology requests visitors' permission to notify them. We will explain how to allow the Tidio notifications in your web browser. 


In this article, you'll learn:


Test notifications at Tidio


On your first visit to the Tidio panel, we asked you if you'd like to allow or deny the notifications. If you've allowed them while visiting the website - you're all done! However, if you haven't allowed the notifications - you will need to unblock them. This way, you'll be sure not to miss any live chats!


To enable the notifications in Tidio, head over to the Settings > Personal > Notifications section and make sure the sound is set up next to each notification you wish to receive. 



Tidio also offers an easy way to check if your web browser is blocking the notifications. Use the blue Send a test notification button in the Settings > Personal > Notifications section.


 

If your notifications are enabled, you will receive the test web notification. If they're disabled - a message from Tidio will appear on your screen, saying that the browser is blocking the notifications.
