How to unsubscribe from website notifications in your web browser

If you’re a regular web surfer, you've probably seen news notifications start popping-up on the top right corner of your computer screen, or the lock screen of your phone/tablet, from one of your regularly visited websites. You may have even received a few from us at Digital Camera World. These in-browser notifications are great for staying updated on the latest news and deals as soon as they happen, but not everyone wants them to be active at all times. 

Every website has to ask for your permission to send you its own notifications before it can start sending you these pop-up notifications, and even if you originally clicked “Allow” when the website first asked for this permission, it’s easy enough to turn them off if you change your mind.

Chris George has worked on Digital Camera World since its launch in 2017. He has been writing about photography, mobile phones, video making and technology for over 30 years – and has edited numerous magazines including PhotoPlus, N-Photo, Digital Camera, Video Camera, and Professional Photography. 

His first serious camera was the iconic Olympus OM10, with which he won the title of Young Photographer of the Year - long before the advent of autofocus and memory cards. Today he uses a Nikon D800, a Fujifilm X-T1, a Sony A7, and his iPhone 15 Pro Max.

He has written about technology for countless publications and websites including The Sunday Times Magazine, The Daily Telegraph, Dorling Kindersley, What Cellphone, T3 and Techradar.
