Want to receive fewer browser notifications? Here’s how to control web notifications and block the pop-ups you don’t want in Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari.
- Use browser settings: Most modern browsers have settings that allow you to control push notifications. You can usually find these settings by going to your browser’s settings or preferences menu and looking for a section labeled “Notifications” or “Permissions.”
- Use browser extensions: Some browser extensions can also help you control push notifications. For example, the “Push Notifications Control” extension for Google Chrome allows you to block or allow push notifications on a per-site basis.
- Disable notifications from the OS level: Some operating systems, like Windows and MacOS, have settings for managing push notifications. You can disable notifications for specific apps or for the entire system.
By disabling push notifications on the web, you can reduce the amount of interruptions and distractions you receive while using your computer. Keep in mind that disabling push notifications may also prevent you from receiving important updates or notifications from websites that you use frequently.
