We recommend double-checking your system notification settings.

  • Ensure that notifications for Session are allowed in your browser settings:
    • For Google Chrome, follow these steps
    • For Firefox, follow these steps.
    • For Microsoft Edge, select the three dots at the top right > Settings > Cookies and sitepermissions > Notifications
  • Ensure that browser notifications are enabled in your system preferences:
    • On Mac, go to System Preferences > Notifications & Focus and find your browser on the list. Here you can also decide whether you want the notifications to go away on their own or you want to dismiss them manually. Allow_browser_notifications_on_macOs.png
    • On Windows, go to Start > Settings > System > Notifications & actions and ensure that notifications are allowed for apps and other senders. mceclip1.png

If you are having any issues after enabling the above, we recommend restarting your computer.
