Proton Calendar desktop browser notifications

Proton Calendar supports browser notifications in all popular modern desktop browsers.

To receive browser notifications, you must be logged in to the Proton Calendar web app.

When you first log in to calendar.protonmail.com, you will see a browser message asking if you want to allow notifications.

If you dismiss this browser pop-up, we will continue to show a banner at the top of the ProtonMail screen, asking your permission enable desktop notifications. If you dismiss this banner (click X to the right of the banner), it will disappear and we won’t ask again.
