The best browsers allow you to receive notifications from websites. This can sometimes be useful, as you can receive the latest updates from your favorite websites or web apps.

However, if not properly managed, it might lead to disturbance or even spamming. Configuring your notifications is easier than you think with the right information.

This guide will show you how to adjust these settings in all popular browsers.

Why am I getting all these Chrome notifications?

The default on Chrome is that the browser will notify you if a page or website wants to send notifications. You can either allow or deny the request.

But if you have allowed it and need to change it later, you can turn it off from Chrome notifications settings on Windows 10, as we will show later in this guide.

Quick Tip:

Opera One is a Chromium-based browser that brings additional features compared to other browsers. It comes with integrated social and messaging apps for easy notification control, also with an ad blocker, a VPN and a native AI.
