Are you wondering “Why is a Push notification company writing a blog about how to unsubscribe from push notifications on chrome?”

Well, Push notifications are designed to alert the subscribers about new updates. It is aimed at delivering timely and relevant information. However, with a wide range of websites we access each day, sometimes the barrage of notifications can get annoying. And that’s exactly the opposite of what we want the users to experience.

Subscribing to push notifications is just a click on the browser when you visit a website. Well, it is equally simple to unsubscribe from them too. It can be done when you receive a notification from a website, or you can selectively unsubscribe from a range of websites by accessing it through the settings of your browser. Here are 2 cases of how to unsubscribe from websites.

Case 1: Unsubscribe when you receive a push notification from a website

When you receive a chrome push notification from a website, right-click on the notification. It will display an option to block all the notifications from that site. Click on that option and you are done. You will no more receive any web push message from that particular website.

Case 2: Unsubscribe from receiving notifications from 1 or more websites after allowing it earlier.

Unsubscribing from a single website

Visit the website you want to unsubscribe from. In the URL bar, click on the lock shown just before the URL and you will see a pop-up as seen below. Next to Notifications, you can click on the options box. You can choose to Block from the drop-down and you will now stop receiving desktop push notifications from this particular website.

Unsubscribing from multiple websites of your choice

When you want to unsubscribe from multiple websites, open a new tab in chrome and type chrome://settings/content and you will be redirected to the page as below.

Under the subheading Permissions, you will see the option Notification. Click on that and you will see a list of websites/URLs where you have been allowed to receive notifications. Go to the website you want to unsubscribe from and click on the 3 dots on the right. You can either allow or edit or remove the website completely from the list. To unsubscribe, click on Remove and you will stop receiving notifications from that website on chrome.

You can do this to as many websites as you prefer.
