Browsers have long allowed websites to send push notifications to users about new updates and published articles. However, these can sometimes become annoying, especially if the site sending the activation request for notifications is spam or otherwise untrustworthy. For this purpose, Google Chrome is finally enabling users to prevent all websites from asking for permission to send notifications. In this guide, we will tell you how to use the new setting.
The new setting has been included in the Google Chrome options and, once activated, allows you to block requests for activation of notifications from all sites, thus avoiding doing it manually and individually for each website visited that requests it. Here’s how to use it.
Google Chrome: How to prevent sites from asking for permission to send notifications
To activate the new setting that prevents sites from asking you to send you notifications, you need to follow the steps below:
- Open Google Chrome on your Android smartphone
- Then touch i three vertical dots placed in the upper right corner of the screen;
- Select Settings;
- From here, scroll to find and select the item Notifications;
- Then touch the item From websites;
- In the screen that appears, deactivate the toggle at the top of the screen.
In this way, the sites you visit with Google Chrome will no longer be allowed to ask you to send you notifications. You can also use this page for disabling notifications individually on the sites where you have enabled them. If for any reason you need to re-enable the possibility for the sites to ask you for authorization to send notifications, you just have to repeat the steps above, enabling the relative toggle.
