Google Chrome setting: Turn off notifications

If you use Google Chrome on the Apple Mac, iMac, MacBook or iPhone or on the Windows PC or an Android smartphone, you will be asked on some websites whether they can send you notifications. If you want to deactivate the corresponding request so that it does not annoy you again and again, there are several ways to do this. Here I will show you how you can switch off the notification request in the Google Chrome settings.

Notification requests in Google Chrome on macOS

Do you use the Google web browser on the Apple operating system for computers, there are at least two ways to get to the corresponding menu item, which enables you to deactivate the prompts. The first one runs through the settings:

Click on the three dots to the right of the address bar -> click on "Settings" -> scroll down and open the "Advanced" menu -> under "Security and privacy" select the item "Content settings" -> "Notifications" (the point with select the bell symbol) -> click the slider (turns gray) -> done

It is of course easier and faster if you enter the path chrome: // settings / content / notifications in the address bar or call up this post in Google Chrome and click the link;) Then you come directly to the page with the slider you set it to "Blocked" in order to have peace of mind before the notification request.

This is how it works: Copy the URL, enter it or just click on the link;)

Deactivate notification requests under Windows

Do you use the Browser Google Chrome under Microsoft Windows and if you always get annoying requests for messages from individual websites there, you can also deactivate them. To block the requests, proceed in the same way as described above for macOS - the menu navigation is the same. You can also use the Settings page URL to go directly to the slider.

Settings under iOS on the iPhone

If you have installed Google Chrome on your iPhone or iPad, you will generally not be affected by such notifications. The browser or the iOS operating system does not offer the annoyance the possibility of opening such notification / inquiry popups on iOS devices, since notifications are only possible via the corresponding interface of iOS. Even if you have deactivated the "Block Pop-ups" slider in the "Content Settings" of Chrome, such notifications will not be exchanged, as they are technically not a classic popup either. That's why I don't have any settings here, because you just don't need them. :)

Procedure on the Android smartphone

If you use Google Chrome for Android, then you also tap on the three dots that are waiting in the top right next to the address bar. In the drop-down menu you then select the "Settings". In the overview you tap on "Website settings". There you will find the bell and the item "Notifications" again. Tap on it and then use the slider to block the demand for website messages (as well as these themselves) on the Android smartphone.
