Web notifications are not all that bad and can be useful at times. For instance, by clicking “allow” you grant permission to that website to show you notifications whenever a new article is published on a blog, or when items on your wish list are available for sale.
On the other hand, that permission may be abused. Some sites may spam you by displaying text advertisements on those notifications. If you don’t intend to ever allow sites to show you notifications, you can easily turn off this feature in the settings.
Steps To Stop Websites From Requesting Notification Access
Turning off this feature in Google Chrome is very simple. Simply follow the steps below:
- Click on the menu icon (marked by 3 vertical dots) located at the top right corner of the address bar and select Settings.
- In the Settings tab scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the “Advanced” button.
- On the “Privacy & Security” section, select “Content Settings. ”
- The Content Settings tab will open. Under Content Settings, scroll down to the “Notifications” section and click on it. This will open the notifications tab.
- Click the option that says “Ask before sending” to turn off the switch. You will also be able to see a list of the sites that often ask you to allow push notifications and another list of the sites you have already granted permission to send you notifications.
- To disable notification access to any website you have already granted permission, click on the three vertical dots to the right side of the site’s URL and select “Remove” to revoke the permission.
So, this is how you get rid of annoying chrome notifications. We hope this simple process explained in steps helped you in understanding the process clearly. Get rid of annoying notification permission requests in your browser right now.
