Remove Chrome Notifications

Settings you can change to remove unwanted notifications from Chrome.

Adjust Chrome notifications on Windows 10 or Mac

Adjusting or completely disabling Chrome notifications is essentially the same on Windows 10 and Mac computers.

  1. Open Chrome and click on the three dots in the upper-right corner. Then, select Settings

    Opening the Settings page in Google Chrome.
  2. Select Privacy and security on the left, and then click Site Settings.

    Opening up the privacy and security options in settings in Google Chrome.
  3. Scroll down to Permissions and select Notifications.

    Opening up the Chome notifications center within the settings of Google Chrome.
  4. Now you have a few options to disable or adjust Chrome notifications. First, choose whether or not sites can ask you for permission to show you notifications. Many sites ask you this as soon as you land on them, by serving you a little pop-up that looks like this:

  5. To prevent all permission requests like this, switch the blue toggle to the off position under Sites can ask to send notifications. That will prevent any new sites from sending you annoying permission pop-ups and distracting notifications.

    Blocking sites from sending permission requests for notifications in Google Chrome.
  6. But what about sites that are already allowed to send you notifications? Your Chrome notifications center also shows your Block list and Allow list.

  7. To disable Chrome notifications from a particular site, go to your Allow list, click on the three dots to the right of the site’s name, and select Block.

    Blocking notifications from a given site in the Allow list of Google Chrome notification center.
  8. Alternatively, if you’d like to allow a site that’s currently on your Block list to be able to serve you notifications again, go to the Block list and click on Add.

    Adding a site to the block list in the Google Chrome notifications center.
  9. Then, type in the site’s address and click Add.

    Typing in a specific site to add it to the block list in Google Chrome notifications center.

It’s worth spending a few minutes removing sites from your Allow list, especially if you no longer want the notifications. 

Once you’ve purged your Allow list and have blocked any new websites from being able to ask your permission to send notifications, you’ve effectively stopped unwanted website notifications on your computer.
