It is something very common on certain websites, especially in the media. When accessing, in the upper right corner of the screen, a tab appears in which we are asked if we want to receive notifications of the updates of that website. Simply declining the offer is enough to make the window disappear. However, there is a way to stop this type of tabs from appearing in the browser.
It is possible to configure the browser so that no more tabs appear asking us to send us notifications from a website
Here’s what you can do to stop seeing these suggestions. It is possible to suppress these notices both in Google Chrome, both in its desktop and mobile version, and in the Microsoft Edge browser.
-Google Chrome on desktop: Open the browser from your PC and click, in the top right corner of the screen, on the three dots icon. When you do this you will see a tab with several options. You must click, almost at the bottom, on the one that says “Settings”.
The computer will redirect you to a new screen where you will see, on the left side, a series of options. Click on the one that says “Privacy and Security” and then click on “Site Settings”. You’ll see a heading that reads “Permissions,” and underneath that is an option for “Notifications. When you click on this last option, you’ll see that Chrome will allow you to choose “Do not allow sites to send notifications”.
-Google Chrome from mobile: The process is very similar to how you do it from PC. Click on the three dots icon, then click on “Settings” and then go to the “Site settings” folder. From there you can deny permission to sites that want to send you notifications.
-Microsoft Edge: Again, when you open the browser you will see the three dots icon in the top right corner. Click on it and then click on the “Settings” option. From there, a new menu will open, in which you will have to enter the “Cookies and site permissions” option.
Click on the “Site permissions” tab and then click on “All permissions”. Find where it says “Notifications” and then uncheck the option, enabled by default, to receive notifications from websites.
