How to block notifications from websites

Sometimes, when we try to search for something very important on the Internet, we might get bombarded with unnecessary notifications from other websites.

When you visit a website for the first time, you are required to agree to the website’s cookie policy, then decline notification access and close the requests to send regular newsletters.

Notifications may initially seem cool and informative, but soon rapidly become annoying and pestering, especially when it is coming from a website on a desktop. As soon as you visit a new website for the first time, there are a few hurdles you need to cross and one of them is opting in and out of push notifications directly from the website.

If you happen to be looking for a one-stop solution to block websites that are asking to push notifications,  here is a guide guide to completely block the notifications that most websites ask for as soon as you begin to consume their content.
