How do I turn off push notifications/pop-up?

How to stop browser notifications

Chrome

  1. While in the Chrome browser, click the three-dot menu icon in the browser’s upper right-hand corner and select “Settings.”
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen, click “Advanced,” then click the “Site Settings” option under the “Privacy and security” header.
  3. Click “Notifications” on the screen that appears next.
  4. Click the toggle next to “Ask before sending (recommended).” That’ll cause the toggle to turn from blue to gray and the text to change to “Blocked.”
  5. If you just want to block certain websites, you can either click “Add” at the top of the “Block” section and enter in the site’s URL. If you see the site you want to block in the “Allow” section, you can click the three dots next to it and select “Block.”

If these instructions don’t match what you see when you click the three-dot menu icon, visit Google’s support site for the latest instructions. If your browser is out of date, try closing it and re-opening it. If that doesn’t work, click here for instructions on how to update it.

  4. Check the box next to “Block new requests asking to allow notifications.”

If these instructions don’t match what you see when you go to “Safari” in your menu, visit Apple’s support site and select the operating system you’re using in the top left-hand corner. If you don’t know what version you have, click here.
