There's a simple, quick way to turn off all website notifications in Chrome — here's how to do it

Google Chrome/Bored PandaDoes anyone ever say yes to this?

The internet is vast and full of websites all vying for your limited attention. Those websites really want you to stick around and, even better, return again and again.

The latest tool for websites to get you coming back: notifications.

You liked this post? Maybe you’d like updates about future posts! But let’s be real: You probably don’t. With rare exception, the answer to “Do you want to turn on notifications for this website?” is, for many of us, a loud, resounding “No!”

There’s a simple way to make that answer apply to every website you visit – here are the steps (credit goes to Time’s Alex Fitzpatrick, who shared the steps on Twitter):


1. Open up Settings in Google Chrome by clicking the menu button in the upper right corner.
