You can always add or remove a website URL from either section.

The site notifications are a helpful feature that helps receive instant updates. But the site webmaster often misuses the feature and sends many push notifications, leading to blocking site notifications in the Chrome browser.

Similarly, we can set up the notification settings in Chrome on Android. You can allow or block selected sites to send or stop notifications.
