Guide to turning off Quick Install

A quick install feature was added to PushEngage for customers who could not add a service worker file in the root folder. So that they can complete subscription under the PushEngage sub-domain.

The service worker file ensures that you have a subscription to your own domain. However, this feature is mostly misunderstood. If you can add a service worker file in root or any other sub-folder we recommend you add it and turn off the quick install. This way you can have your own website name shown on the notifications rather than the PushEngage subdomain. Collecting subscribers on your own domain also ensures that there is no vendor lock-in.
