How do I disable news feed notifications in Opera Mini for Android?

  • Apologies if this was covered before. I tried to search, but the search just took me back to the first page of the forum without showing results.

    I am using the latest Opera Mini on Android 4.4.2 and at some point must have turned on a news feed function. Links and summaries of news stories pop up in my notifications area / pulldown with an Opera badge - pressing them opens Opera to the news story. I want to stop getting these, because they are getting out of hand and I think maybe slowing down my tablet.

    I looked around and couldn't see a setting. There's a "feed" setting, which is disabled, and a Facebook notifications setting which is unconfigured since I don't use Facebook. I don't have a default browser set anywhere as I use different browsers for different things. For instance I tend to use Opera for videos like youtube.

  • Try disabling 'Opera notifications' in settings.
