Configure Notification Settings on Android Phone

Undoubtedly, Google Chrome is one of the best browsers, with many customization options. One of its best features is controlling the notification without any hassle. Hence, we will take the Chrome browser as an example in this guide.

Chrome can send the push notification once the users have opted for it. However, a few site owners or web admins frequently misuse the feature and send annoying notifications. This creates distractions, and we end up disabling the notifications.

I like to stay focused whenever I’m working on something online. Browser notifications are exceedingly distracting and create anger. I prefer blocking them at all times.

If you are like me, traumatized by these browsers and website notifications, you are at the right place. In this article, we will learn how to stop browser notifications on Android.

Disable Chrome Notifications

Browser notifications can be annoying at times. They can deviate your attention and make you lose focus. The only way out is to stop web browser notifications on Android.

Follow these steps to disable the browser app notifications on Android:

  1. Open Android Settings from App Drawer.
  2. Tap on the Apps & Notifications from the Settings.
    Android Apps and Notifications Settings
  3. Select the Browser App (Say Chrome app) from the list of apps.
  4. Within Chrome App Info, tap on the Notifications tab.
    Chrome App info Notifications
    Here you can see all the notifications currently enabled or disabled.
  5. Toggle the Show Notification button and turn it OFF to stop all notifications.
    Chrome Show Notifications Toggle Button OFF

That’s it. You will no longer receive the notification from Chrome for Android. These steps will restrict all the ads and notifications from the selected browser on your Android phone.

Disable Site Push Notifications

While completely disabling notifications is not suggested since many general notifications help us stay updated. Instead, I suggest disabling the Site notifications only in most cases.

Follow these steps to disable the Site notification in Chrome:

  1. Open the Android Settings app.
  2. Tap on Apps & Notifications from the Settings.
  3. Select Chrome Browser App, and choose the Notifications tab.
  4. Make sure the Show Notification is turned ON and scroll down a bit.
    Chrome Show Notifications Toggle Button
  5. Toggle the Show notification to turn off under the Sites section
    Chrome Sites Show Notifications turn OFF

This will only turn off the site push notification; however, the General chrome notification like Content Suggestion, Downloads, Incognito, Browser, etc., will still appear.

Enable Few Site Notifications

While most Chrome notifications are useless, I find some valuable and informative. Mostly the blogs that I follow and read regularly send helpful notifications.

You may not receive any site notifications if you completely block the site notifications or Chrome notifications. Follow these steps to enable the site notifications for selected sites:

  1. Open Android Settings.
  2. Tap on Apps and Notification from the Settings.
    Android Apps and Notifications Settings
  3. Choose and Open the Google Chrome app.
  4. Within Chrome App Info, tap on the Notification menu.
    Chrome App info Notifications
  5. Enable both Chrome & Sites to Show Notification.
  6. Under the Sites section, disable the checkbox against the site you want to block the notification.
  7. Similarly, enable the checkbox for the Sites or Blogs URL that you want to receive the push notification.
