Turn off Chrome Notifications

Some of you might know it. You visit a website for the first time and are directly asked whether you want to activate news in Chrome, which directly indicate news via push. By mistake, you press Allow and from now on you are annoyed with the news. Therefore, we would like to show how to turn off Chrome notifications. So, push notifications in Chrome can be quite useful for the interesting sites. However, far too often nowadays they are activated for pages that you may not visit often or that have not interested you for a while. It may also be worth deactivating the Chrome Push messages for Facebook, as this can add up to quite a bit depending on the size of your circle of friends. In the end, it’s up to you whether you want to deactivate Chrome messages or stay up to date for everything.

Turn off notifications in Chrome is also completely possible:

In Chrome’s settings, you not only have the option to turn off a single Chrome notification. Rather, the setting can also be made in general, so that you can no longer be asked by any website whether it can notify you. This is a good feature, which we also use ourselves. In our opinion, such notifications are more and more distracting nowadays and you lose focus for what you actually wanted to search for. But that can also be a matter of taste.

Step-by-step instructions:

  • Open Google Chrome
  • Click on the three dots in the upper right corner
  • Select “Settings”
  • Search in the middle for “Site Settings”
  • Go to “Notifications”
  • Disable the first slider to turn off push notifications completely
  • If you leave it active, you can set the second slider to show only an icon instead of an info box when push notifications are available
  • Under “Block” you will find all deactivate websites
  • Under “Allow” you will find all enabled websites
  • With the three small dots next to an entry you can decide if you want to move it to the other area, edit it or delete it from the list
  • Done!

As you can see, it is not difficult to disable Google Chrome Messages. The trick is to find the right setting for yourself. That is, to enable the websites that provide you with important information and turn off all others, or to reduce them in the deeper settings to what can still be important for you. We hope that now you know exactly how to proceed with a notification in Chrome.
