Is it okay to allow Website notification requests?

When a user visits a website that uses the Web Notification API, a browser will prompt the user for permission to show notifications. Once granted permission, the website will be allowed to send notifications. These can update push notifications from the apps you are interacting with on your web browser or phone.

Depending on the number of websites you visit per day, allowing notifications from these websites becomes overwhelming and annoying. The only solution is to block them. We show you how to do that using chrome and firefox.
