Use notifications to get alerts

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 browse privately, you won’t get notifications.

Change your default notifications settings

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More and then Settings.
  3. Click Privacy and security and then Site Settings and then Notifications.
  4. Select the option that you want as your default setting.
    • Block a site:
      1. Next to "Not allowed to send notifications," click Add.
      2. Enter the site's web address.
      3. Click Add.
    • Allow a site:
      1. Next to "Allowed to send notifications," click Add.
      2. Enter the site's web address.
      3. Click Add.
    • Allow quieter notification prompts:
      1. Allow sites to ask to send notifications.
      2. Click Use quieter messaging.
        • This blocks notification prompts from interrupting you. A website can still ask you to allow notifications, but no pop-up prompt will show. Instead, you will only find a bell icon next to the website's address. You can click the bell to allow access.

Tips:

  • If you allow notifications for a site that Chrome marked as abusive or misleading, Chrome may block those notifications and require the site to request your permission again. You can change the setting to allow notifications.
  • From time to time, Chrome will remind you to review your notification permission grants.
Fix issues with notifications
If you want to receive notifications from a site but don't get them:
  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. Go to the site that you want to get notifications from.
  3. Click View site information Default (Secure).
  4. To allow notifications, turn on Notifications.

Tip: When Chrome finds a site to be disruptive, it may automatically remove a site’s permission to send notifications and require the site to request your permission again. To undo this, navigate to the site, click Notifications blocked , and re-enable notifications in that message.

Block pop-ups from a site
If you receive notifications from a site but don't want them:
  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
  3. Click Privacy and security and then Site Settings and then Pop-ups and redirects.
  4. Under "Allowed to send pop-ups and use redirects," find the site.
  5. To the right of the site, click More More and then Block.
If the site isn't listed, next to "Not allowed to send pop-ups or use redirects," click Add. Enter the site's web address, and then click Add. To capture all pop-ups across the site, use the pattern [*.]example.com.
