    What Are Browser Notifications?

     

    Most internet browsers allow websites to offer browser notifications. The first time you visit a website that offers browser notifications, you will see a pop-up message at the top of your browser window asking you to either allow or block notifications. If you choose to allow them, browser notifications can be displayed at any time, even when you are not on that website. These notifications are typically used for things like blog updates, social media interactions, and upcoming sales. Unfortunately, cybercriminals can also send their own malicious browser notifications to steal your money and information.
