Google is majorly looking into the bothersome notifications received from websites on Chrome. The newest version (v86) of Chrome browser has brought on a feature which focuses on blocking websites that try to use notification for the purpose of abusive and misleading content.
This is all a part of Google’s new move to manage notifications with more ease. The Notification permission UI was brought on by v80 of Chrome. Then this was built on by adding auto-enrollment in quiet notification UI for a website that provided Abu dice notification permission required.
The main aim of Chrome 86 is notification content and detecting websites that have been known to send abusive content via notifications. According to Google, some of these websites use this trick in order to place malware to obtain login details of the users’.
The UI feature and the Chrome v84 look exactly the same. A big difference between the two is the renewal of Chrome blocks notification permission requests when it finds a pattern of abusive notifications being sent from a site.
“Google’s automated web crawling service will occasionally subscribe to website push notifications if the push permission is requested.Notifications that are sent to the automated Chrome instances, using Safe Browsing technology, will be evaluated for abusive content, and sites sending abusive notifications will be flagged for enforcement if the issue is unresolved,” the company explained in a blog post.
One of the newer releases to come soon is that when a user has allowed a notification that has been labeled as sending abusive notifications, Chrome will revert the notification permission status from “granted” to “default”.
Also, an email will be sent to the owner of this website that has been labeled. They will then have a 30 day grace period to address the problem and await a review.
