Currently, Google Chrome is one of the most used browsers by users around the world. To perform any action, we will always visit the page of Google, which facilitates the search for information available on the internet. However, on many occasions pop-ups appear notifying certain promotions, videos, newsletters, email lists or even tracking users with cookies. That is why in this note we will bring you a list of four different options to avoid these windows and keep your web experience pleasant.
Disable Chrome notifications on startup
This option is very easy to enable. It all starts when you first install Google Chrome on your computer. At the time it asks you to send notifications, you must deny access and thus avoid annoying pop-ups.

Use an ad blocker
The last alternative option to avoid pop-up ads will require downloading a patch or extension from Google. A clear free and functional example is the ublocker that can be obtained from the browser itself.
