Block or allow pop-ups in Chrome

If you still get pop-ups after disabling them:

  • You may have previously subscribed to receive notifications from a site. You can block notifications if you don’t want any communications from a site to show up on your screen. 
  • Your computer or phone may be infected by malware. Learn how to get rid of malware.
