Google Chrome to block disruptive notifications

I’m sure this has happened to you. You visit a website and a pop-up asks if it can send you notifications.

You click yes… and within a few days, you totally regret it.

It’s one thing to get the odd news update. And another to be bombarded with alerts.

This has a name. It’s called notification spam. And it can kill productivity in your business.


There’s good news. Google’s working on a new feature to automatically block alerts from websites it’s decided are ‘abusive’ or ‘disruptive’.


Once blocked, the site won’t be able to ask permission to send notifications. We’re not sure when this new feature will be released. So if you need help reducing notification spam for your staff before then, get in touch by calling 03330 509625 or fill out our form.

Thats your tech update, more next week.

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
