Android phone + Chrome for search engine + too many fox news alerts.

Is there a way for a slow brained android user to limit tbe fox alerts on Chrome? Getting annoying.

1. Try Firefox. Also, Firefox Focus is great. Both on the Google store.

3. It alerts you to when a fox is nearby?

Seriously, I have an Android with chrome and I never get fox alerts. Go through your settings, looking for the word “fox” - you’ll find it somewhere, have patience- and delete it.

5. Sounds like you let FoxNews.com send you notifications.

From inside Chrome:
3-dot menu > Settings > notifications > additional

Delete foxnews.com from the "allowed" list.


If you want to block all push notifications:
3-dot menu > settings > site settings > notifications > notifications (toggle between blocked and ask)
