HOW TO STOP WEBSITES CONSTANTLY ASKING YOU TO ALLOW NOTIFICATIONS
FOR CHROME, FIREFOX AND SAFARI.
Now that web browsers are allowing websites to show you notifications, you’ll likely have noticed a pop-up window asking whether you’d like to block or allow them for each site. There are ways to stem this influx of notifications if you find them to be overwhelming. For Chrome users, navigate to ‘Settings > Advanced > Privacy & Security > Content Settings > Notifications’. Here, you can click the slider to change the option from ‘Ask before sending’ to ‘Blocked’ which only allows the notifications on your ‘Allow’ list to come through. On Firefox, type “about:config” into the URL bar and click ‘I accept the risk!’ Search for ‘notifications’ and double-click on ‘dom.webnotifications.enabled’, which will block all web notifications. If you’re using Safari, navigate to ‘Safari > Preferences > Websites > Notifications’ and uncheck the aptly-titled checkbox: ‘Allow websites to ask for permission to send push notifications’.
