Can I remove this notification - Chrome is being controlled by automated test software?

51    Asked by AlisonKelly in Cyber Security , Asked on Apr 22, 2022

I have just updated my project with the latest chrome driver (2.28). When I run the browser through the driver, a yellow notification pops under the URL bar, saying "Chrome is being controlled by automated test software". Is there any way to configure Chrome not to show this notification? I used this code to start the driver:

    ChromeOptions cOptions = new ChromeOptions();
    driver = new ChromeDriver(cOptions);
  In chrome 57+ and chromedriver 2.28, the execution was not starting when driver.manage().window().maximise(); is used


ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions();
DesiredCapabilities capabilities =;
capabilities.setCapability(ChromeOptions.CAPABILITY, options);
WebDriver webDriver = new ChromeDriver(capabilities);//Capabilities is deprecated in latest version
Don't Use for the notification - Chrome is being controlled by automated test software
