How to Stop from Showing Notifications?

Most modern browsers allow users to adjust their notification preferences, so start by heading to your browser settings and looking for the option 'website notification permissions' or something similar. From there, you can specify which domains are allowed to send you notifications and which ones should be denied access.

Alternatively, browser extensions are one of the most popular ways to block intruding pop-ups and other annoying features on a Web page. There are lots of useful extensions available that specifically target website notifications, allowing you to approve or deny specific domains whenever a new request for permission pops up.
