Can I stop pop-up notifications from various sites?

Sometimes browsing through Internet it looks like a psychological test. Automatically playing videos and pop-ups that jump right and left asking for more pop-ups are enough to push someone to the limit of madness. Fortunately, with some minor changes to your browser settings, you can stop sites that make such invitations from annoying you in the future.

Follow instructions for Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

Chrome

  • At the top right of the window, press the three dots and select "Settings".
  • Scroll to the bottom of the screen, press "Advanced" and then under "Privacy and security" menu select "Site Settings".
  • On the next screen, select “Alerts”.
  • Press the blue button that will change color to gray to change the recommended setting to block.

If you only want certain sites to send you alerts you can add them as exceptions to the same Chrome settings page.

  • Press the "Add" button next to the word "Allow".
  • Enter the address of the site you wish to add to the exceptions.

Asterisks are used as symbols to allow alerts from any site that starts with address you typed.

Firefox 

  • At the top right of the window, press the three dots and select "Options".
  • Select "Privacy & Security" in the left menu.
  • Navigate down to the "Permissions" section, select the "Settings" button next to "Notifications".
  • Check the box next to "Block new requests asking to allow notifications."
  • If you wish to remove some pages If you are already authorized to be notified, on the same screen you can select the "Remove Website" button. Selecting "Remove All Websites" will remove all sites from this list.

Unfortunately Firefox does not allow for the exclusions of certain sites. So, to receive alerts from them, you must first visit them, approve their alerts, and then follow the previous steps to block them altogether from all others.

Safari

  • In the top bar select Safari> Preferences.
  • Select Websites and then Notifications in the menu on your left. 
  • Any site that has requested permission to display alerts will be on this site list. You can browse it and allow or deny access to any or all of it.
  • At the bottom of the window you can also remove the option: "Allow websites to ask for push notifications".

You can also silence all alerts from Safari by going to its Notification Center Poppy you.

  • Select System Preferences and then Notifications.
  • Find Safari in the list and select it.
  • Under "Safari alert style:" select "None." This will only affect the banners that appear when you receive a notification.
  • Remove the default setting from the following: “Show notifications on lock screen,” “Show in Notification Center,” “Badge app icon,” and “Play sound for notifications.”

If you wish system If you are temporarily muted you can select "Do Not Disturb" in the upper left list, filling in the time or occasion for which you want to silently set all alerts.
