Mobile notifications

To be notified of new messages on your mobile phone, from within the Web1on1 app, go to: Settings → Preferences (footer menu) and switch on mobile push notifications:

Troubleshooting notifications

Not receiving Web1on1 system emails?

If you or your colleagues are not receiving emails from Web1on1, it is possible that they're being blocked.

Firstly, please check your spam folder.

Not found?

Contact your IT guy / department about getting our email addresses whitelisted.

The main emails we use are:

  • noreply@web1on1.chat

  • info@web1on1.chat

  • notifications@web1on1.chat

  • payments@web1on1.chat

  • support@web1on1.chat

  • contact@web1on1.chat

  • security@web1on1.chat

Alternatively, you could whitelist anything from the Web1on1 domain:


Recovering browser notifications (once blocked)

At one point during your on-boarding, your browser will ask for permission to display notifications. This is very useful because we will be able to notify you of incoming chats, even when you are not online in the app or your browser tab is in the background.

You may have dismissed this permission request, by choosing: Block

If you want to allow browser notifications, please take these steps:



Troubleshooting sound notifications?

Automatically playing audio on a page is probably one of the annoying things that a website can do to a user. In order to give users control over this, browsers employ various forms of autoplay blocking.

In general, browsers will block an autoplaying audio from playing. This includes playing any audio not requested by the user explicitly, like the Web1on1 sound alerts on new chats and messages.

Autoplaying rules for all browsers are somewhat similar:

  • An autoplay with sound is allowed only when the user has done some kind of gesture with the website before - click, type etc

  • On mobile, autoplaying with sound will always be allowed if the user has placed the website to their home screen.

For this reason, if you have sound alerts enabled, it's best to have some interaction with the agent console after loading the application. Any click on the document itself (this excludes scrolling) will count as user interaction.

For reliable notifications, audio alerts are best combined with browser tab indicators or desktop notifications.

More information: read the rationale for Chrome, or change the user preferences for Firefox and Safari.
