How to Turn Off Browser Notifications

 

Browser notifications are entirely opt-in and are controlled by your browser on your computer. When you visit Ricochet.com for the first time, your browser will prompt you to either allow or block notifications for new posts (and podcasts) at Ricochet:

Example opt-in prompt in the Chrome browser.

If you opted-in by accident or no longer wish to receive browser notifications, then you can turn them off in your browser preferences. We do not, and can not, control browser notifications. They are local to your computer.

In Safari, go to Preferences->Notifications (Or Preferences->Websites->Notifications, depending on your version) and find “ricochet.com” or “Ricochet” and change “Allow” to “Deny.” If you remove the entry completely, then you’ll just be prompted to opt-in or -out the next time you visit Ricochet.

In Chrome, click on chrome://settings/content/notifications and find “ricochet.com” then click on the three vertical dots to the right to open the options menu, then select “Block.” If you remove the entry completely, then you’ll just be prompted to opt-in or -out the next time you visit Ricochet.

In FireFox, click on about:preferences#content then click on “Choose…” to the right of “Notifications.” Find and highlight “https://ricochet.com” and then click remove. The next time you visit Ricochet you’ll be prompted again to opt-in or -out of receiving notifications. This time opt-out.

If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]. Once more, Ricochet does not create the notifications in your browser. The only reason you’re receiving notifications is that you opted-in to receive them, although you may not remember having done so.
