When we visit a website, it can show us notifications. These, sometimes, can be useful since, for example, they can notify us when we have notifications. Others, on the contrary, use these ads to show us news or advertising that, on occasions, can even be annoying. And finally, some websites even do it with bad intentions, such as making us download a virus in Chrome to infect the PC.
Google Chrome blocks notifications from websites by default, unless we explicitly allow them. However, there are times when they trick us into activating them. The problem is that, once activated, it can be difficult to find the web that shows them and deactivate them. And browsing the Internet with these ads popping up every so often can be a nightmare.
If you are in this situation, we explain very easily how to end them once and for all.
Block notifications from any website
In case we have already given permission before, what we must do to stop seeing these messages is to deactivate them manually.
To do this, we open the Google Chrome Settings menu and we move to the Chrome notifications section. We can easily reach it by typing in the address bar: chrome://settings/content/notifications.
Here we will see a list with all the websites that have asked us for permission to display notifications and to whom we have said yes or no. We will click on the button with 3 points and here we can see an option that will allow us to remove notifications from the extension in question.
When we remove all the websites that we do not want from here, they will stop showing ads on our computer. In addition, thanks to the extension that we have just seen, the messages to show notifications will no longer appear when we visit a web page.
Block Chrome notification prompt
When we visit a website that has this notification system Google Chrome It shows us a window like the following. As we can see, the window doesn’t have any complications and, furthermore, we can hide it by clicking on the X or any of the two buttons, depending on what we want to do.
We don’t know why Google opted for such an aggressive system to ask users this. These small windows can be really annoying for users. Luckily, there is a simple extension that allows us to hide all these notices permanently: Block Website Notification Requests.
This extension does not have any settings or any mystery. As its name indicates, its main and sole purpose is to block all messages that ask us if we want to see notifications on the computer or not. All the floating windows we just saw.
We can download this extension for free from the following link.
Once the extension is installed in Google Chrome, we can forget about it. When we visit a website that has this notification system again, we will automatically see how this message no longer appears.
Of course, we remember that the purpose of this extension is not to block these messages, but the warning window that asks us for permission.
