How to Disable Push Notification on Desktop and Smartphone

Most of the browser today supports push Notification. Every time you visit a website, it will ask you if you want to get the desktop notification. And probably we all said yes when a site proposed for the push notification. Likewise, whenever you enable the push notification from your mobile browser, the browser will display information in your notification panel. And most of the websites misuse these features to get traffic to their site. And we have grown tired of getting these notifications that take up our entire notification panel on our mobile and disturbs us when we are surfing the web-browser or doing some important tasks. So you might be looking for a solution to disable push notification whether on Desktop or Smartphones.

In case you are feeling overwhelmed, today, I have come up with an article that will guide you to turn off the browser push notification on your computer and mobile phone.

  3. Next, look for Privacy and security panel and click on Site Settings under Privacy and security panel.
  4. Now, from the Site Settings page, look for the Notification tab under Permission and click the Notification tab to open the notification settings.
