I visited a website yesterday. Today, a notification popups every time my mobile phone is rebooted, showing me that website (it is grouped under "Social digest"). However, when I click on that notification, it only takes me to Chrome but not to that website.

How to permanently remove this notification?

  • "It is grouped under 'Social digest'" I couldn't find any references on the internet if Chrome shows social digest notification instead of individual site's push notification (unless "Social Digest" is the site's name...). It might be another's app notification (or ads/malware) that redirects to the default browser instead. But considering you already accepted an answer for turning off Chrome's notification, then I guess that's not the case for you...

Open Chrome → Settings → Site settings (under "Advanced") → Notifications and click on it.

The following screen will appear

Per-site notification setting on Chrome

If you turn off the Notifications slider, you will not get any notification from Chrome at all (from sites).

To turn off for a particular site, click on Allowed → [URL of the site] → Notifications (under "Permission") → change "Allow" to "Block".


If you want to delete notifications for specific sites in the list. You have to manage in storage of application by going Android's Settings > Apps > Chrome > Storage > Manage Space > Manage.

From there, select the domain URLs that you do not want individually, which will show its "Site settings", then select the trash can next to "Usage" and select "Clear all".

If you go to the "More info" section of the Chrome app (Android's Settings > Application Manager > Chrome), uncheck "Show notifications". This will turn off all notifications for Chrome.

  • In the "Settings", I have "Basics" and "Advanced". In the "Basics", I have "Search engine", "Auto-fill forms" and "Save passwords". In the "Advanced", I have "Privacy", "Accessibility", "Site settings", "Date saver" and "About Chrome". I cannot find "application manager".

I have at last worked out how to remove notifications permanently from Chrome on Android:

  1. Press the three dots at the top-right of Chrome
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select Notifications
  4. Scroll all the way to the bottom and press the Advanced button, then press Additional settings
  5. Now you should find yourself in the notifications section of Chrome. You can see both Blocked and Allowed notifications by going through the different addresses
  6. Click on each of the sites you wish to remove, you will be given the option: Clear and Reset - press this if you want to remove the notification from your phone in its entirety
