  • To block a specific website: Next to "Block," click Add. Enter the site and click Add.

  • To allow a site: Next to "Allow," click Add. Enter the site and click Add.


You can go to 'View Site Information' in your Address bar and choose to block or allow notifications. You can also block any sites or apps from sending you notifications.
