Could someone please let me know if there is any way we can disable the logs generated by the page factory for Chrome and Firefox

I did try the below options for chrome and firefox and I had also turned off the Selenium logs.

Selenium - java.util.logging.Logger.getLogger("org.openqa.selenium").setLevel(Level.OFF);

Chrome - System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.silentOutput", "true");

Firefox - System.setProperty(FirefoxDriver.SystemProperty.DRIVER_USE_MARIONETTE, "true");
                System.setProperty(FirefoxDriver.SystemProperty.BROWSER_LOGFILE, "/dev/null");

But inspite of that these logs are still getting displayed.

Thanks in advance.

enter image description here

Please find below the code:

public class LoginPage {

@FindBy(xpath = "//input[@id='txtUserName']")
WebElement textfield_UserName;
@FindBy(xpath = "//input[@id='txtPassword']")
WebElement textfield_Password;
@FindBy(xpath = "//div/button[@id='btnSave']")
WebElement button_Login;

public LoginPage() {



public void loginPageDisplayed(String userName, String password) throws IOException {

    try {

        if (!status.equalsIgnoreCase("Failed")) {

            PageFactory.initElements(driver, this);

            BasePage.sendKeysToWebElement(textfield_UserName, userName);
            BasePage.sendKeysToWebElement(textfield_Password, password);



    } catch (Exception e) {





  • Can you share some code regarding the PageFactory initiation? It does not print out things be default. – João Farias Jul 5 '19 at 14:02
  • @JoãoFarias I have added my code. – User1208 Jul 7 '19 at 23:20
  • I had put in my Base Page as System.out.println statement. That is why the locators were getting displayed. – User1208 Jul 8 '19 at 0:52
  • Can you can answer your own questions and accept them as an answer. Unanswered questions keep getting bumped. So please try to either close the question or answer it. Thanks :) – Niels van Reijmersdal Jul 10 '19 at 9:23

PageFactory does not print out selectors by default. So it is probably something you added yourself in the base class.

A good way to research this is to use step-by-step debugging in your IDE. Set a breakpoint where you use the selector. Run the tests in debug-mode and from then use the step in option to see what code is being executed. Eventually you should run into a line of code that prints the selector.
