    Chrome with new update- targeting abusive notification

    As a new version of Chrome -version 84- is scheduled to be released on July 14, some of its upcoming features are being surfaced.  One of such feature is that Chrome is planning to block the notifications from those sites of which Google assumes user data are being misused or abuses the privilege of issuing the warnings. 

    As per the blog written by the Google Product Manager, PJ McLachlan “Abusive notification prompts are one of the top user complaints we receive about Chrome.”

    Starting with this new version of Chrome, they are planning to blacklist the websites which fall under the category  “Quiet UI”. Also, the browser would be alerting the user about the nature of the website and it might be trying to trick the user.

    However, the new version of the browser will only prevent the new permission request from websites not to those which users have already agreed to grant the request.

    Sites that fall under the criteria of abusive notifications would be notified by email prior to at least 30 days before activating the feature and within that time, the concerned website would be able to improvise their website and resubmit the website for further evaluation.
