  • Choose “Delete”

Remember that, by default, a site, app, or extension may request permission to send notifications on Google Chrome. But you can also choose to disable these notifications. There will then be no more viruses or advertising messages. However, if they come back, you will have to follow this procedure again and eradicate them again.

We recommend that you be very vigilant and avoid accepting all notifications displayed on the Internet, at the risk of damaging your browser and even your own PC.
