How to Disable Push Notifications of a website in Desktop Browser.

Have you mistakenly subscribed Web-based push notifications service from a website? And continue receiving unwanted non-relevant content (news, post etc.) notifications on your Desktop.We mostly use a most popular Desktop web browser such Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera for surfing and browsing on the Internet.

Now, these web browser also allow receiving Web Based Push Notifications message from a subscribed website. For Example, you have subscribed new post notifications service from Facebook, then when you open the Browser with which you have subscribed the Desktop notifications service.

So If you have mistakenly subscribed Push Notifications service from a website and wanted to turn off, Block or disable these Web-based message service in Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera Desktop Browser. Then here I will show how you can do that.

What is Web-based Push Notifications:

Web-based Push notifications are the desktop message alerts that you subscribe from a specific site. Today many sites are using Web-based Push notifications service to engage their customers. And when you subscribe their new post or message via Push Notifications service with Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera Browser etc. And when they publish something new content on their site then the notification message will be sent directly to your desktop. (If the browser is open or you have closed the browser recently.)

Push Notifications are the good option for the Website owner to make a relationship between them and you because they can easily remind their users to re-engage with new content. And it is much better than the email notifications service because no one is regularly checking their emails if they are not a business entity. But with Push notifications, if the user is regularly surfing on Internet then the push notifications can be directly delivered to users Computer desktop.

      You will probably (like me) have Blocked a large number of sites since installation of Opera. Scroll to the bottom of the list to find any you may have (inadvertently) allowed to send notifications. Remove any that look suspicious, you can always add them again next time you access their page.

  1. it is not working for me at all.
    i appear to have unwittingly allowed an advertizer to spam me with win 10 notifications via opera, and also regulat notifications about sites i have no interest in which are apparently ”updating in background”

    i can’t find a way to see how they get in, nor where they are hiding in my browser

  2. I unsubscribed about ten times from push notification from a particular website, until stumbling across this GREAT article I was unaware of how to block it. Thanks for the awesome information.
