Are you distracted by Google Chrome notifications while you are working? Sometimes they may be intended to help you, but sometimes they are annoying when they pop out suddenly. However, you don’t have to stick to the default settings. With just a few steps, you can easily reduce or disable some notifications! The following article will guide you on how to do this. 

How Notifications Work

Notification is a message that pops up in a heads up manner on devices such as cell phones, laptops, and computers. It will help you know about the latest news or updates from the websites or applications you have previously subscribed to. You can change the setting very easily anytime in a few steps. 

When the websites you’re browsing are intrusive or misleading, Chrome will automatically block notifications or ask your permission to turn them off. In addition, you won’t receive notifications when you’re browsing in the incognito mode.
