Recently, and randomly, I started getting, on my Windows 10 PC, boring Reddit notifications on a black popup window, in the bottom right. Reddit, I read in Wikipedia, is “an American social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website. Registered members submit content to the site such as links, text posts, and images, which are then voted up or down by other members“. However I never register with that site or at least not consciously!!!
Then I could not figure out how to disable it: I even did not find any reddit program going in my Control Panel -> Installed programs list! The only think I recently did on my PC was to install Chrome browser …
I found a possible solution in a post that suggests to open Chrome browser, past chrome://settings/content/all?search=notification into its the URL search bar, then search for reddit using the available magnifying glass section: you will find two results (i.e. reddit.com, redditmedia.com).
Clicking the 3 dots, you can both delete cache data and change permissions, setting all of them to deny.
I really don’t know if it’s a Chrome thing or, more likely, something that got (unwanted) installed visiting some site using that browser.
I read also that another way to stop those notifications acting on Windows 10 notifications section (down right corner): when you receive one Reddid message, go to (Windows10) Notifications -> Settings (by one of the Reddit messages) -> Chrome notificationsettings -> remove reddit from “allowed” (3 dots -> remove)
In this way I received no more notifications … even thought I still have listed in Chrome settings those reddit sites …
