Browsing the web can both be delight and a nightmare. It is a delight because you will always have answers for your questions. The internet is a gold mine of information, after all. You’ll always see what you are looking for and more. But sometimes, it is a total disaster. One thing, you’re just surfing the net and the next, a pop-up video shows up along with a series of notifications. You didn’t want to do away with them so you closed the website only to find out that you still are receiving pop-up notifications. Sounds familiar? Say hello (or not) to push notifications.
Push notifications are messages that a website sends you in order to engage you with them. Their goal is to inform you of all things new about them so maybe you’ll take interest. For example, subscribing to a newsletter from a blogging site. You can get them even if the website that sent it to you is not open in your browser. They won’t have access to any of your contact details. However, they are still annoying especially if you are busy with working on a task or several. Getting us informed is well-appreciated. But definitely not when we are sent a ton of notifications.
Thankfully, you can disable them in your browser. Here is a guide to help you go through the process.
For Chrome, the most widely used browser, click the three vertical dots located under the X or close button of the browser.
Once you have a website that you want specifically blocked, locate it in the Allow column, and choose to Block it or Remove it.
For Mozilla Firefox, click the three vertical dots to start.
For Microsoft Edge, first, you need to open the browser and go to the Menu. Unlike Chrome and Mozilla, the menu is signified by three horizontal dots, not vertical.
For Safari, open the browser and open Safari.
