Google Chrome’s 84th Edition, for both mobile and mobile desktop, introduced a new feature that will move to a more stable type: the blocking abusive notifications. At this new time, we will be able to protect ourselves from websites that abuse the browser notification system to trick us into signing up.
The web browsing notification system has been adopted in the form of instant news alerts on page a the gate for all kinds of ‘spam’
Chrome starts blocking notifications
As announced by Google on the Chromium blog, the 84th version of the browser will use the targeted notification system. ban all pages they use to harass readers. It’s a good measure given the increase in deception to click the button to turn on notifications: from hiding a web browser to making this button appear as something else to block access to the page until notifications are received; with proper risk of unwanted warnings.
The functionality of the new Google Chrome key is as follows:
- To have a compatible version (Chrome 84 minimum), the browser will detect if the website violates the notification system. It will also block the option to show them to the user.
- A warning appeared on the screen as notifications were blocked; with an ‘X’ to turn off the alert message.
- If you really want notifications, a link marked as ‘details’ will allow you to know more about the block option. continue blocking notifications or allowing them.
Google Chrome 84 is not yet in its stable form: it will arrive in mid-July 2020. Plan will protect against those pages that Google considers ‘abusive’ by notification and only at the time of initial registration. The blocking will be effective later on the pages where we already subscribe.
