How to disable Facebook Notifications in Chrome on Windows Desktop

Social networking sites like Facebook demand your constant attention. As such, they require you to sign in to your respective browsers to have agreed to receive notifications. Google Chrome is by far the most preferred browser for computer users and it is no exception to this rule. That said, constant beeps and bell sounds can distract you from your work. If you want these notifications from Facebook not to bother you, it is best to have them disabled. Here’s how you can turn off or disable Facebook Notifications in Chrome.

Disable Facebook notifications in Chrome

By default, Chrome browser alerts you whenever a website, an app, or extension wants to send you notifications. So, if you recently noticed ‘Desktop Notifications are on’ popup message while accessing your Facebook account in Chrome, and if unknowingly you’ve clicked ‘OK’ button, you are likely to see push notifications from Facebook page appearing in the corner of the screen, every time. Nevertheless, the user is at the discretion to have it changed at any given time.

First things first, open your Google Chrome browser. Move the cursor of the mouse in the upper right-hand corner of your computer screen.

Next, click on the hamburger icon and from the list of options displayed, select ‘Settings’.
