At last! Google Chrome’s going to block disruptive notifications

September 8, 2022

I’m sure this has happened to you. You visit a website, and a pop-up asks if it can send you notifications.

You click yes, and within a few days, you regret it.

It’s one thing to get the odd news update. And another to be bombarded with alerts.

This has a name. It’s called notification spam. And it can kill productivity in your business.

There’s good news. Google’s working on a new feature to block alerts from websites it has decided are ‘abusive’ or ‘disruptive’ automatically.

Once blocked, the site won’t be able to ask permission to send notifications.

We’re not sure when this new feature will be released. So, get in touch if you need help reducing notification spam for your staff before then.
