What are web push notifications?
Push notifications, often referred to as simply notifications, are sent via desktop and mobile web. Depending on the operating system, push notifications are 'alert' messages that slide in at the top or bottom right-hand corner of a desktop screen.
Accepting to receive push notifications at some point when browsing the web is often done without even noticing. The problem with granting these permissions is that they stay even long after leaving the website. Often these websites are connected to a chain of shady malvertising sources, which is why removing one won't remove them all. Using an anti-malware that blocks popups like Guardio will remove all sources and future ones.
