How to Disable Chrome Browser Website Notifications? What are Google Chrome notifications? They are announcement notifications displayed in your browser that are sent by websites. For example, when you receive a new email in your email account or when a website you have allowed notifications from shares new content, it may appear as a notification. Notifications can appear in the top right corner of your browser or on your desktop. Google Chrome notifications help users have a better browsing experience, but they can be disabled to avoid receiving unnecessary notifications. Particularly, notifications from websites you don’t use can become annoying when they come in excessive amounts.

How to block auto-opening sites? You can personalize notifications based on individual websites.
If you want to disable notifications from only one website, click on the three vertically aligned dots icon right next to it. From the menu that appears, you can choose to remove notifications completely or allow notifications from that specific site only. If you don’t see the site you want in the list, you can click on “Add” and manually enter the site to add it.
