Web push notifications are the new RSS feeds.

Like the old times of RSS feeds, now we subscribe to blog updates using browser push notifications.

Push notifications are a new way for readers to stay updated with their favorite blogs.

I have talked about this in detail over here.

Since it’s easy to subscribe to browser-based push notifications, sometimes we overwhelm ourselves by subscribing to too many blogs via push notifications.

Things get really bad when you open your system after 2-3 days & you are bombarded with a ton of updates.

This guide will help you disable push notifications on your Chrome browser. You can either disable desktop-based push notifications for all sites or for select sites.

Do remember, this kind of notification can only be disabled only from your end & there is no need to contact the website owner.

To make it easier for you to understand the process of blocking Chrome push notifications, I have added a video in a later part of this tutorial.

Disabling Chrome Web Push Notifications: Tutorial

Here is how you can get started.

In the Chrome browser, open a new tab and type:

  • chrome://settings/content

(You will see a screen like the one below.)

Now scroll down to Notifications and click on Manage exceptions…

Manage exceptions
  • Save

Here you have two options:

You can block all notifications by clicking “Do not allow any site to show notifications”.

Or you can select certain sites from sending push notifications by clicking on the “x”.

  • Save

When you click on the “x” to remove the domain from the exceptions list, you will be again prompted to subscribe when you visit the site again.

If you don’t want to get the prompt & don’t want to receive Chrome desktop push notifications for this site, simply click the drop down option and select Block.

Here is a video tutorial that shows how you can turn off Chrome desktop push notifications:


If you are a blogger & want your blog readers to subscribe to updates using Chrome push notifications, you can use PushEngage.
