Stop Site Notifications on Your Android Phone (Chrome Browser Tutorial)

You probably cannot count the number of times you’ve come across this message after spending a few seconds on a site.

Ironically, if this is your first time here, you’re going to see the same.

Well, subscribing to a website is quite useful if you find and look forward to getting helpful content in the future from the website. But sadly, some websites get it wrong.

That’s because they send you notifications after notifications, telling you to check out their latest article, and it becomes hard for you to keep up with them at some point.

Just so you know, those notifications are called Push Notifications.

Today, I’m going to show you how to stop all those constant push notifications from popping up. You will be able to choose the websites you want to stop getting notifications from and those you wish to keep seeing.

Here is the step by step method of stopping push notifications on Chrome for Android.

Step 1: Open up your Chrome browser and tap the Menu Icon (3 vertical dots on the top right).

Step 5: Under the Allowed section, tap the website you want to stop receiving notifications from.

In the example above, I am using my website www.shustechs.com, you can see it is in the Allowed section. This means notifications are allowed to show up from the website on my browser.

The other websites you see there are also allowed to send me notifications.

So, tap the website you wish to stop receiving notifications from and move to the next step.

Step 6: In the Permissions section tap Notifications.

Step 7: On the Notification screen you get taken to, you’ll need to switch off Show Notifications.

If you successfully do that, the switch will turn gray. In my example, when it’s on, it’s green. Yours may be a different color.

So switch it off by tapping the button.

That’s all, you’ve successfully stopped the website from constantly showing you notifications.

If you tap the back button, you’ll notice that instead of Allow, you’ll see Block when you check the notifications status.

Now go do the same for every other website you don’t want to receive notifications from.

Conclusion

Receiving push notifications from your favorite websites may be useful if you’re always interested in whatever they have to say.

But when the notifications get too many to handle, you’ll find yourself overwhelmed by them.

The best thing to do at this point is to block notifications from the website. And I have provided the steps that work with the Chrome browser on Android, since it is one of the most popular mobile browsers.
