👤 Diwas Poudel    🕒 May 21 2022    📁 FIX

One of the useful features of Google Chrome is called Chrome Notification, and it can be very useful if it is used in the right way. It notifies you when new content is published on your favorite websites by sending notifications from those websites to which you have subscribed. Once you have subscribed, you will see a notification in the lower right-hand corner of your screen whenever the website publishes new content. 

However, if you subscribe to a large number of websites, you may experience an increase in the number of notifications that pop up on your browser. If this is something that bothers you and you would like to find a way to stop it, you have come to the right place.
