Almost all popular websites ask consumers for permission to post updates on their phones. You may have granted the same thing over a period of time, either inadvertently or by design. Updating these websites can take up your valuable notification panel space and sifting through these notifications to access useful information can be very painful.

I don’t know about you, but I almost never want a website to send me notifications — not while I’m actively looking at the site and certainly not while it’s closed.

In addition, the content of websites will also absorb your storage space, which could be a problem in the long run.

Thankfully, a minute or two of simple tweaking can stop your browser from ever allowing such invasive invitations to pester you again.

How to manage sites that push notifications or updates to your android phone

We have listed the following steps for Android 10, Android 9 Pie and Android Oreo. You can easily manage these notifications from the app info page of your Chrome Browser or prevent websites from requesting such permissions.

  1. Open Chrome App Info page

    This can be done by long-pressing on your Chrome Icon and tapping App Info (i) on most phones. You may also access App Info page from Settings>> Apps> Chrome

  2. Open Notifications

    Android Notification management has really improved in the last few years. You will find granular notification control under the Notification option.

  3. Scroll down to ‘Sites

    ’You will notice all the sites that you have allowed or blocked from pushing notifications. By tapping on individual sites, you can also customize notifications for individual sites that you find useful.

  4. Disable Site Notifications (for all or individual sites)

    You can disable options that you don’t need either individually or collectively by toggling off the ‘show notifications’ option at the start (under Sites).

That’s it. Similar options are also available for Firefox and Safari browsers.

You can also manage your Site notifications from the desktop chrome browser, but the process is simpler on Android phones.
