How can I change my notifications preferences on my device?

On desktop:

On MacOS and Windows, message notifications are managed under System Preferences > Notifications. Select the Wire app on the left, then change your preferences on the right.

On Google Chrome:

When you sign in for the first time, the notification bar will ask you to allow or deny these notifications. Click the lock icon and choose one of the 3 following options:

  • ask by default
  • always allow on this site
  • always block on this site

On Mozilla Firefox: 

You will be asked to choose whether to show notifications for:

  • this session

You will be asked if you want to show desktop notifications.
