How to Disable Chrome Notifications

If you’re not interested in notifications from any website, you can block the prompts completely from the Chrome settings.

First, open the Chrome web browser on your Windows, Mac, or Linux computer, and then click the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner of the window.

Next, select “Settings” from the drop-down menu.
