To make sure you're protected by the latest security updates, Google Chrome can automatically update when a new version of the browser is available on your device. With these updates, you might sometimes notice that your browser looks different.

You visit a website in Chrome and a window pops up asking if you want to get notifications from the site. You quickly click “No” so you can get on with what you came to do. It’s a minor distraction, no big deal. But then it happens again . . . and again . . . and again. Now the minor distraction has turned into a major annoyance. There’s good news. You can block the notification requests. Here’s how to do it. 1. Click the three vertical dots in the upper right corner of Chrome. 2. Click “Settings”. 3. Scroll to the bottom and click “Advanced”. 4. Click “Site Settings” under "Privacy and security". 5. Click "Notifications" 6. Flip the “Ask before sending (recommended)” toggle to “Blocked”. That’s all there is to it. The same procedure works for Chrome on Windows machines, Chromebooks and Android phones. I don’t know why website owners think it’s a good idea to annoy people with these infernal notification requests, but I’m glad Chrome gives us the means to block them out.
