How to turn off notification requests from websites in Chrome. Chrome supports native desktop notifications. This means that when using an app or web service that can show notifications such as Facebook or YouTube, the notification can be sent via the operating system's native notification system. It is useful, but almost all the websites you visit try to send you notifications, if it bothers you, you can disable notification requests from websites in Chrome.

How to turn off notification requests from websites in Chrome

Open a new tab in Chrome and paste the following into the address bar:



chrome: // settings / content / notifications

You will be taken to the notification settings for Chrome. At the top, you will see a switch called "Ask before sending (recommended)". Disable it and it will block all notification requests.

How to turn off notification requests from websites in Chrome individually

To enable notifications for a website, visit it and click the lock icon in the address bar. From the menu that opens, click “Site settings". This will open another internal Chrome page dedicated to that website and its settings. Open the drop-down menu Notifications e seleziona l'opzione 'Allow'.

The website will be able to send you notifications but other websites, those to which you have not given the same permission, will not be able to ask you to allow notifications.

We should remember that some websites may still show notification requests. These 'requests' are not the same ones you have disabled. Some websites use pop-ups to ask for permission to show alerts. These popups are like any other popup a website might show you, and Chrome notifications have nothing to do with this. There is no way to natively disable them. You can probably use a sophisticated content block to stop it but it might not work.
