In a rush to get to the content, you may start clicking on “accept” and “OK” on these popups without really reading what you are agreeing to. Now you are constantly getting notified when some websites publish a new post, and some of those websites post a LOT. What you may not realize is that many websites are also asking if they can notify you of new content. Have no fear though, it is pretty easy to revoke these notifications.
One easy way to disable the web notifications is to take care of the problem as soon as it pops up. Once you see one of the web notifications appear, click the cog looking icon inside the notification box.
Once you click the notification settings icon you will see all of the sites you have allowed to send notifications under “Allow”. From here, click the three dots next to the website URL you want to remove web notifications from and click “remove” or even “block”.
If you don’t have a recent notification to use, you can still get to the right place to remove the access.
First, in Chrome, click on the 3 dots in the top right corner of the browser, and select Settings.
Scroll down until you see the word “Advanced” and click on that, then scroll down more until you see Content Settings
Once you are in Content Settings, find “Notifications” and then click on that
This will bring you to the same place I explained above where you can find the URL of the website you want to revoke access to and remove or block it from notifying you.
Now you will no longer be bothered by these desktop notifications!
