Turn notifications on or off

You can set up Chrome to get notifications, like meeting reminders, from websites, apps, and extensions.

If you get pop-ups or ads, learn how to block or allow pop-ups.

How notifications work

By default, Chrome alerts you whenever a website, app, or extension wants to send you notifications. You can change this setting at any time.

When you browse sites with intrusive or misleading notifications, Chrome automatically blocks notifications and recommends you continue to block these notifications.

If you’re browsing in Incognito mode, you won’t get notifications.

Allow or block notifications from all sites

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. To the right of the address bar, tap More More and then Settings.
  3. Tap Site Settings and then Notifications.
  4. At the top, turn the setting on or off.
    • To allow quieter notification prompts, tap Use quieter messaging (blocks notification prompts from interrupting you). You won't get notifications after you ignore multiple notifications from a site, or if other users typically don't allow notifications from a site.

Important: If you allowed notifications for a site that Chrome marked as abusive or misleading, Chrome may block those notifications and require the site to request your permission to send a push notification. You can change the setting to allow notifications.

Allow or block notifications from some sites

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. Go to the website you don’t want to receive notifications from.
  3. To the right of the address bar, tap More More and then Info Information.
  4. Tap Permissions and then Notifications.
    • If you don’t find the setting for a specific website, it can't send you notifications. 
  5. Select Allow or Block.
