These notifications can include pop-ups, alerts, and other messages that appear on the screen when the website wants to communicate something to the user. However, some users may find these notifications annoying or distracting and may want to stop them.

This article provides a step-by-step guide on how to disable website notifications in Chrome, which may involve accessing the browser's settings or changing the permissions granted to individual sites.
