How to Turn Off Notifications in Google Chrome
Do frequent notifications appear in Google Chrome? Sometimes it can be annoying to use.
Especially if the notification appears more than once and in conditions when you are busy browsing or streaming on the internet.
Well, the solution is you have to turn off the notification. Google Chrome itself has a feature to turn it off.
Like most browsers, Chrome will allow websites, apps, or extensions to send notifications. The goal is for you to get updates faster, such as for meeting reminders.
Unfortunately, while it can be pretty useful for some people, the appearance of notifications in Chrome can be very annoying for others. It could be, the notification comes from a site or web application that we do not want.
Knowing this, Google also provides unique notification settings in Chrome – both desktop and Android, because Chrome on iOS does not display notifications – which can be used to activate or block notifications.
I will discuss this in full. Please continue reading this article.
Causes of Notifications on Google Chrome
For those who don't know, my experience is that this notification is not from Google Chrome. But most of the sites that you access.
For example, you are browsing on a site, then a pop-up notification appears, which if you click it, the site notification will appear automatically.
It can be in advertisements, updates to the latest articles, certain notifications, and so on.
So don't be surprised if the notification only appears when the computer or laptop is connected to an internet connection.
How to Turn Off Google Chrome Notifications (PC)
Next, discuss how to turn off notifications in Google Chrome.
There's no need to worry about this problem because it's easy to set the notification settings.
Please follow these steps.
1. Open the Google Chrome Settings Menu
First, you have to access the Google Chrome settings page.
The trick, please open Google Chrome on your PC > Click the three-dot menu icon on the top right taskbar > Then click the Settings menu there.
2. Access the Site Settings Menu
The Google Chrome settings page will open. First, click the Privacy and Security menu in the left column.
Then please click Site Settings. This menu serves to manage sites whose settings are stored in Chrome.
3. Turning Off Notification Permission
Site settings in Chrome are device, location, camera, or mic (for streaming or video calls), including notifications.
Well, please turn off notification permissions in Google Chrome via this menu.
Here are the steps:
- On the site settings page, please find and click the Notifications menu.
- Then in the Sites can ask to send notifications column, swipe left to turn off notification permissions.
After the permission is turned off, all the notifications that used to appear before in Google Chrome will no longer appear. Don't forget to restart Chrome.
4. Turn Off Notification Permission From Certain Sites (Optional)
What if there is a notification that you still want to display? For example, news sites.
Well, the permission settings did not need to be turned off again. Turn it on and make notification permission exceptions from specific sites you want.
- Still, please enable notification permission again by sliding the settings to the right on the site settings page.
- Then in the Block column, click the Add button.
- Later a pop-up menu will appear.
- You can fill in the URL of the site you want to block notifications from.
- If so, click the Add button again.
How to Turn Off Google Chrome Notifications (Android)
While for Android users, you can dismiss notifications in Google Chrome by tapping the More button (the three-dot icon also in the upper right corner), then entering the Settings menu.
From the Settings page, then select the Notifications option. After being thrown in the App Notifications settings page, press the slider button to the off position to block all websites and web applications.
Meanwhile, to block one by one, you can scroll the screen to the Sites section, then press the slider button to the off position on each unwanted site or web application.
In addition to using the method above, you can also remove notifications in Google Chrome by using Incognito or incognito mode, both on desktop and Android. It's just that if you use this mode, the blocking only applies for a while – while you are still using that mode.
The final word
That's the discussion on how to turn off notifications that like to appear on their own in Google Chrome. Including the cause.
This method is specifically for PC and laptop versions of Chrome. Of course, I also use the latest version. For those who have not used the latest version, please update first.
Oh yes, besides using this method, you can try to clean up Google Chrome if it doesn't work.
With a note, first backup data that is important, such as export bookmarks. Usually, later much more effective.
I hope it is functional.
