Google Will Punish Websites With Disturbing Notifications On Google Chrome | Instant News

Our web browser experience is often tainted by annoying advertisements and notifications through the browsers we use.

Although this notification many times helps users receive important updates, it can also be used for unfair practices.


Google now promises to take action on these efforts in its Chrome browser.

Recently blog post by the technology giant to explain its new efforts to oppose “abusive patterns” that are “used to mislead users, deceive personal information, or promote malware.” Google marks them in two broad categories – “permission request issues” and “notification issues.”

If you are an ordinary person Internet browser, You will have a fair idea about both. Permission request issues are often seen on websites that ask visitors to allow notifications to check the website. Some are even misleading in nature.

Other websites have “Notification issues” which Google describes as “fake messages that resemble chat messages, warning, or system dialogs.” This tactic can be used to trick users into sharing personal information or links to malicious software.

With the next version Chrome – Chrome 84, released on July 14, 2020, users will be shown a warning before they enter the website. Google will automatically register the site in a quieter notification UI.

Google said that the update would be “significant” for some Chrome users even though only a small number of websites would be affected. It said that the number of harassment websites was very small but the request was one of the main complaints that Google received from Chrome users.

What if your website fails this check?

Google notifies the website owner if a notice of such harassment is experienced on their website through the Harass Notification Report in Search Console. This confirms that the website owner will also receive an email from Search Console notifying them of “at least 30 calendar days” abuse before Google’s actions. During this period, websites could resolve this problem and “resubmit their websites for review,” Google said.

Up, Google will try to protect users who have received notification permission from such abusive sites.
