Site Settings in Vivaldi on Android

This post is also available in: 日本語 Français Deutsch Српски Български 简体中文

Some permissions in the app are enabled by default, others are blocked and in many cases a website will ask for your permission, for example, to access your device’s camera and microphone, to show you notifications, etc.

To review and adjust your preferences for each of the settings:

  1. Go to the Vivaldi menu > Settings > Web pages > Site Settings.
  2. Tap on the permission in the list to see your options.

If a website has asked for permission, it will be listed on the permission’s page, from where you can adjust your choice by tapping on the domain name. In many cases you can also add exceptions to the default setting.
