How to Disable Notifications in Chrome

John John (304)

Sometimes I accidentally hit "Allow" when a website wants access to Chrome's notifications. This is almost always a mistake. This guide will show you how to disable notifications in Chrome.

Note: it's a similar process to block websites in Chrome, as well!

You can navigate to chrome://settings or click on the hamburger icon and click settings.

Or if you still want Chrome to ask you, you can choose "Ask when a site wants to show desktop notifications".

Remove sites you've already approved

If you're allowing Chrome to show notifications for approved sites, you can remove sites that you've already approved by clicking "Manage exceptions..."

Click on the site you want to remove, and click on the x that shows up to the right of the line. This will remove the exception. And that's it!

Did you know you can disable the pop-up blocker in Chrome as well?
