How To Configure Browser Capabilities Detection In Magento 2 Admin Panel

Similar to other websites and applications, Magento requires that customers allow cookies and JavaScript. However, sometimes users set the browser to the highest privacy setting that cookies and JavaScript are not allowed. You can configure your store to check the capabilities of each visitor’s browser, and send a notification to browsers if settings need to be changed.

  • Cookies disallowed: Store administrators can configure the system to redirect customers to Enable Cookies page automatically, which describes how to make the recommended settings with most browsers.
  • JavaScript disallowed: Store administrators can configure the system to display the message on the header of every page.

To configure browser capabilities detection, follow these steps:

On the admin sidebar click Stores, under Settings click Configurations.

On the left of the panel under General, click Web.

Open the Browser Capabilities Detection tab and do these steps:

  • Set Redirect to CMS-page if Cookies are Disabled to “Yes” to display guidelines that describe how to configure the browser to allow cookies.
  • Set Show Notice if JavaScript is Disabled to “Yes” to display an alert notification banner on the header when JavaScript is disabled in the browser.
