Do you have notifications appearing on your computer screen from random sites, Google Now, or various apps? Do they feel invasive and unwanted – or do you want to make greater use of them? Either way, we have the guide you need. In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to disable/stop websites notifications in Google chrome. However, in case you want to stop pop-up notifications from websites in Google Chrome permanently, here is what you should do and what you should not do.
Web Notifications allow sites to display notifications to alert users outside the context of the webpage and the browser, keeping users informed of new messages or alerts and allowing sites to improve user engagement.
Websites don’t send notifications automatically or without your permission. If you see any pop-up notification from any internet site, then the chances are that you may have allowed the website to send you the notification when you visited it for the first time or maybe second time or possibly third time and so on. It doesn’t matter when you allowed it as long as you have allowed it. Hence, the notifications are popping up.
Stop Websites Notifications in Google Chrome
Here’s how you can disable/stop specific web or website notifications on Google chrome.
#1. Open the Google Chrome Settings page. You can either type chrome: //settings in the address bar and hit Enter or click the hamburger icon at the top right > Settings.
#2. Scroll to the bottom and click Show advanced settings.
#3. Under Privacy, click Content settings….
#4. Scroll down to Notifications, Select do not allow any site to show desktop notifications.
#5. If you want to block a specific site’s notifications, click Manage exceptions…and find the site you want to block. Click the site to select it, and choose Block from the drop-down menu under the Behavior column.
Do this for all the websites that are sending your notifications in Google Chrome. Once done, click Done button and restart Chrome.
That’s all there is to it. The website is completely Stooped from Notification Center and should no longer alert you of anything. If you ever decide you’d like to re-enable notifications, you can do so by following the same steps again. You can alternatively just disable items you don’t like such as banner notifications.
