How to Block Web Push Notifications In Chrome/Firefox/Opera

1
Please wait...

For some time now, more and more websites have been asking if we want to receive push notifications on the desktop.

The problem is that when one website asks, I refuse, after a moment the next page asks the same question and the next one...

A lot of people including me, do not want to be constantly asked about this permission. Web push notifications are annoying the same as asking for them.

So far, I have not given web push permission to any website and I will never give such permission.

I would like the popup request for web push permission not to be shown and request automatically denied or ignored.

Fortunately, it can be done quite simply.

    It doesn’t work in Chrome. Google won’t repair this bug.
