When browsing the internet, regardless of the browser you use, you should have come across pop-ups to notify you of news or news posted on websites. Although a very useful feature, it is true that these pop-ups can end up annoying some people, as they often mislead the user.
Fortunately, to inhibit some of this practice, Google has implemented a feature in Chrome that causes the browser to eventually block or silence these requests for notifications without affecting sites that already allow it. Here's how to block notification requests from sites accessed with Google Chrome.
This new feature of Google Chrome is not enabled by default and can be reversed anytime the user wishes. The process can be performed on both mobile phones and computers in the stable version of the browser, with the flag to be activated.
How to prevent notification requests in Chrome
Unlike some functions, this new feature of Chrome needs to be enabled in its parameters, but the process turns out to be very practical. Check out:
1. On your preferred platform, make sure Chrome is up to date with its latest available version;
2. From your address bar, go to: chrome: // flags;
3. Search for “Quieter notification permission prompts”;
4. In place of “Default”, select one of the three highlighted options;
5. If you are doing the process in the mobile browser, these are the right options to “silence” notification requests;
6. In the message that appears, click on “Relaunch”.
From that moment on, you will not see any differences in the browser, but when you access a site that would send you notifications, you will receive a message that the request to send you notifications has been blocked. If you wish to receive notification requests again, simply return the flag value above to "Default".
Ready! You now know how to use Google Chrome to stop receiving awkward notification notifications from websites.
