Hello everybody! In today’s video, I’ll tell you about
the pop-up windows that people are facing more and more often these days; these windows
usually ask for your permission to show messages with news from the current web resource or
to access your location. I’ll show you how to disable such push-notifications
in browsers like Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Yandex Browser,
and how to block them for good, or allow them for
certain websites only. Nowadays Internet browsers let websites show
special push notifications. You can see this kind of pop-up windows in
all kinds of web resources; they usually ask you for permission to show notifications with
the website news on your desktop, access your location or other data. Originally meant for user’s convenience,
but to many notifications for which you might have carelessly subscribed can become a real
nuisance. Fortunately, modern browsers let you manage
such subscriptions and even block them forever. Disabling push notifications in Google Chrome
In Chrome, you can disable this function by going to the menu by clicking the button with
three dots on it; select Settings and scroll down to Advanced.

In the section Privacy and security go to
Content settings. Here choose Notifications and drag the slider
next to Ask before sending (recommended) so that it changes to Blocked position. In this condition, Google Chrome will block
all new requests for showing notifications. However, the websites where you allowed pop-up
notifications will be able to send them anyway. In the Allow section, you’ll see all the
websites for which you allowed push notifications. By clicking on Add, you can enter other websites
to this white list if necessary. In the Block section, you can add domains
to be blocked by default – and it doesn’t matter if the function is enabled or not. Disabling push notifications in Mozilla Firefox
In Mozilla Firefox, the function of blocking push notifications is available since version
59. Open the menu (the button with three lines
in the top right corner of the screen) and then go to Options. Select Privacy & Security. Find the section Permissions and click on
Settings next to Notifications.

You can also “Pause notifications until
Firefox restarts” to temporarily block the push notifications. The Settings page contains the list of trusted
websites which you allowed to show notifications, and also all websites you have blocked. To disable receiving notifications from new
websites, check the box next to “Block new requests asking to allow notifications, and
don’t forget to click on “Save changes.” Other websites with the “Allow” status
will be able to show notifications as before. To stop notifications, click on the arrow
and choose “Block” or highlight it and click on “Remove website” if you checked
the box here. Otherwise, click on “Remove all websites”
if you don’t want to receive any notifications from them. Disabling push notifications in Microsoft
Edge Microsoft Edge doesn’t have settings for
push notifications. All you can do when you see one is to click
No. The browser will remember your choice for
this website and will never show it when you visit the website again, but other websites
will keep on showing their notifications. Disabling push notifications in Opera
To disable push notifications in Opera browser, go to the menu by clicking on the “Customize
and control Opera” button in the top left corner of the window.

Then go to Settings, or just press the key
shortcut Alt + P. Now choose Websites, find the section “Notifications”
and check the box next to “Don’t allow any site to show desktop notifications”
and it will disable all requests. Clicking on “Manage exceptions…” you
will see the list of all websites allowed to show notifications, and next to each of
them there will be buttons to block or allow notifications. Disabling push notifications in Yandex. Browser
And finally, Yandex Browser. Open the menu by clicking on the button with
the three lines on it in the upper right corner of the window, go to Settings, and at the
very bottom of the page, click Show advanced settings. In the Personal data section, select Content
settings.

In the section “Notifications,” choose
not to show notifications on sites to block websites from showing requests. By opening the Manage exceptions window which
is available here as well as in other browsers, you can remove the websites allowed to show
notifications or block them, or add them to exceptions. After all the changes you have made, don’t
forget to click here to save changes and restart the browser. That is all for now. Don’t forget to click the Like button and
