Notification enabled but not working

Hello, I used to use “push notification " with Chrome, but I can’t with Brave
and I’ve enabled " Notifications” and allowed some sites like Twitter, Reddit…
also tried to disable Brave Shield and nothing displays.

Push notifications should work on most sites as long as you allow them to. Are you prompted to allow pop-ups from these sites when you visit the?

@Joee,
Apologies for the late response!
Are you still not seeing notifications on your end? If so, can you show me what sites (if any) are included in the Allow list of sites that can send you notifications? You’ll find this list in Settings --> Advanced --> Privacy and Security --> Content Settings --> Notifications

I see. Either way, you’re correct – web notifications for many sites don’t always behave as expected. I think that i will edit and expand upon the issue I linked to above to give the devs clearer information regarding the bug.

Thank you for your patience – I’ll let you know what I find out.

@ilan0098,
There definitely is a fix considering that many users (myself included) can receive notifications. That said, if you’re using Windows, you may also want to check the Windows “Focus Assist” settings on your machine. Focus assist controls can be found in the icon tray on the taskbar. You can also adjust Focus Assist settings on a more granular level by going to Display Settings --> Focus Assist.

Ensure that you have this feature configured to show notifications – if it’s not, it may explain why you’re not seeing any appear.

Since I see notifications from this website only, which isn’t much , but still getting the notifications , I don’t think that the problem is in my machine at all.

@joe,
Can you show me which sites should be showing you notifications? You can just take a quick screenshot of the list of sites allowed to send you notifications by going to Settings--> Advanced --> Privacy/Security --> Content Settings --> Notifications
