How to block notifications in web browsers

Recommended Posts

Notifications which pop up on your screen can be distracting and annoying. Here's how to disable them in the various web browsers as of January, 2020:


Google Chrome

Select Settings → Advanced → Site Settings → Notifications from the main menu, and change "Ask before sending (recommended)" to Blocked.


Mozilla Firefox

Select Tools → Options → Privacy & Security from the main menu, scroll down to Permissions → Notifications, select Settings, click on "Remove all websites" and then check (select) "Block new requests asking to allow notifications".


Microsoft Internet Explorer

(does not support notifications, as far as I know)


Microsoft Edge (pre-Chrome)

Open Windows Settings (not Edge's) and go to System → Notifications & Actions, scroll down to Notifications, and set "Get notifications from apps and other senders" to Off.


Microsoft Edge (Chrome-based)

Open Settings and More → Settings → Site permissions, select Notifications and set "Ask before sending (recommended)" to Off.
