Why notifications from OPERA

  • As far as I understand I am running Opera 53 and I appear to have Opera Beta installed on my W10 Pro desktop. I have recently started to receive Opera Mail Notifications (looks like female contacts!). I am not aware of having an Opera Mail client anywhere (no other Opera programs installed and don't appear to have any relevant extensions).

    Anyone know where these come from?
    How to remove the software that generates them etc.
    I don't see any mailbox or similar - just these pop-up opera Notifications

    Seems to be tribution.mobi
    opera Browser!

  • @peterhw Have you already checked your system for malwares?

    Did you already try the recommended steps to try to solve issues?

    How those notifications look like? Where and when you see them?

    What's on the notifications?

  • Many thanks,
    I just run W10 essentials - will look at Malware possibility
    Haven't found recommended tests - just didn't know where to start looking.!

    The message looks like the same as the service advising me I have Outlook Messages (lower right hand side of screen). The Outlook messages contain the words Outlook and the messages I refer to state Opera Browser. The Outlook messages are then in my Outlook mail system (having fulfilled any rules - i.e. moved,copied,deleted etc).
    I have no idea where the Opera Browser messages come from and where (if) they are stored.

  • here is Outlook Message - also showing system tray in bottom right hand corneralt text

    The messages appear at the time mail is checked (I guess) with both Outlook and Opera coming thru one after the other

  • @peterhw See https://forums.opera.com/topic/23068/instructions-on-posting-about-problems-in-opera-for-computers for the steps you should do before posting.

    It seems that you've enabled notifications for that site. Take a look at the settings page.

  • What sites are open in your browser? Go to Settings > Websites and look for the Notifications settings - what is it set to, and if you click on Manage exceptions what exceptions are listed.

    I found the Tribution.mobi listed here and BLOCKED it. Should do the tick.
    Many thanks all
