The website notification was intended to send important alerts to the user in real-time. In this way, they will not miss any notifications anytime.
However, edge notifications can be annoying these days when the website tries to send promotional offers very frequently. I hate notifications from any site or even the apps that aren’t relevant. Hence, I have disabled the email notifications on my android phone.
While Microsoft Edge does support push notifications like chrome browsers, this feature is being misused by marketers in a way that users are always bombarded by edge notifications. It goes to such an extent that I even receive edge notifications at 2 am which is rather annoying.
Thankfully, the Android system settings allow us to completely block this edge notification. We can even customize to enable or disable notification from specific sites at our ease within the Edge Android browser.
