How to Enable or Disable Notifications in Edge Android Settings?

Block the Site Notification

Notifications are useful when used nominally. However, due to increased marketing campaigns and digital advertisements, they have become a pain. Hence, most users prefer blocking these push notifications within the browser.

If you’re looking for the same, then follow these steps:

  1. Launch Edge App on Android.
  2. Tap on the More horizontal 3-dots icon menu for options.
  3. Select the Settings menu and tap the Privacy and Security option.
  4. Choose Site Permissions and then Notification.
    The notifications are default set to Ask first.
  5. Toggle the switch to Block the notifications.

You won’t receive notifications or request popups to allow or block notifications.

However, if you want to customize the notification and allow only a few websites to send it, you can customize it using the Android settings page.

Customize the Notifications Settings

Alternatively, use the Android App notification settings to customize the notification based on the category — browser, download, news, etc. You can turn the notification on or off based on your chosen sites.

  1. Launch the Android Settings.
  2. Open the Apps & Notifications tab.
  3. Look up and open the Microsoft Edge browser within the Apps list.
  4. Choose the Notification menu.
  5. Enable or disable toggle switches and checkboxes based on your needs.

You can completely block the notification or allow specific sites to send push notifications on your device. You can also turn off the inbuilt notification like inPrivate mode, Downloads, News, etc.

Bottom Line

You can disable the notification from any Android website on your Edge browser. I’d suggest customizing the notification so you can receive a vital push notification and block the promotional ones.

Also, if you want to receive notifications from specific sites, you can customize them under the Android Apps Notifications settings for the Edge browser.

Similarly, you can configure the site notification alerts in the Edge browser on your computer. The desktop version of notification settings has multiple options that are unavailable on the mobile browser.
