How to Enable/Disable Browser Notification on Android?

Learn how to enable or disable push notifications on Android browsers like Chrome. You can also block or whitelist the notification for the selected sites.

Undoubtedly, Google Chrome is one of the best browsers out there with a lot of customization options. One of its best features is the ability to control the notification without any hassle. Hence, in this guide, we will take the Chrome browser as an example.

Chrome can send the push notification once the users have opted for it. However, there are few site owners or webmasters who misuse the feature and send annoying notifications very frequently. 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.

    Thanks. Great article. Sadly I am finding that sites on both, Edge and Firefox continue to ask for push notifications. Even though I explicitly disabled permission for sites to ask for notifications. This is one of the most frustrating parts of the modern web.
