You have bound to be fed up with websites that inadvertently display a message asking if you want the site to display notifications on your desktop. Almost any site you visit these days will show you this message, as Google Chrome's default setting allows this.
But while desktop notifications can sometimes be helpful, some are just annoying – from retail sites, for example.
So if you're tired of having to click the Block button every time one of these notification requests pops up, you can turn off all notifications for all sites in Chrome. Here's how to do it:
Block computer notifications
To begin with, let's say that if you use private browsing mode, you do not receive notifications. If not, then open your Google Chrome browser from your computer. At the top right, click “More” (represented by three vertically aligned dots), then click Settings. At the very bottom of the page, click on Advanced settings. In the “Privacy and Security” section, click Content Settings. Then click on Notifications.
You can also make it shorter by going directly to the link: chrome: // settings / content / notifications 🙂
There you just have to deactivate the small blue button in front of "Ask for authorization before sending (recommended)". This will block all notifications on Chrome. Now you can be sure that Chrome will no longer harass you with these banners.
Block notifications from Chrome on Android
If you're using an Android phone or tablet, start by opening the Chrome app first. Then, to the right of the address bar, tap “More” (still represented by three dots aligned vertically), then Settings. Tap Site settings, and then tap Notifications. You just have to deactivate the parameter at the top of the page, and voila!
On iPhone and iPad
For iOS users, there is nothing to do. In fact, Chrome is not receiving notifications on your iPhone or iPad!
