Depending on who you ask, push notifications are either a godsend or a curse. While some individuals love being reminded of new information or a new fascinating product, many people do not want to be interrupted every minute by some rubbish. You will need to handle the alerts to categorize them and stop receiving news about items you don’t care about.
Chrome users, rejoice!
Each operating system has its own method for managing push notifications. Depending on the operating system, Chrome employs a variety of approaches.
Users of Android should:
01. Find the three-dot icon and expand the menu.
02. Look for “Site Settings” in the expanded list.
03. Navigate to “Notifications” and select “Asked first” or “Blocked.”
04. In some circumstances, consumers may like to address their preferences for the websites they are now viewing. To do so, tap the “lock” icon next to the website’s URL.
Other operating systems:
01. Open the browser and navigate to the menu.
02. Select “Settings” from the list that opens.
03. Scroll down to towards the bottom of the list and you’ll notice “Advanced.”

05. Your next focus should be on the image of a bell and the caption that goes with it.
06. Toggle the switch next to “Add before…”
07. Select “Allow” or “Block” from the drop-down menu.
