Google’s efforts to block ‘disruptive’ and ‘abusive’ notifications
Google has already gained some success on this issue in recent years. The company now “quiets” the notification prompt from websites that abuse notifications or misleadingly ask for permissions. Chrome even warns the users if a site may be trying to trick them as Google quiets a site in this way.
The report claims that the company is now trying a stricter approach to fight notification spam. A new code change will soon allow Chrome to automatically revoke a website’s permission to send notifications and will also block the site from making any future attempts to ask for the permissions. However, it is important to note that even if a user has accidentally allowed notifications from a harmful site, Chrome will intervene and will stop the site from sending notifications. Currently, Chrome’s existing protections are designed only to convince users not to give that permission, leaving the final decision to them.
This process will not affect all the websites that send notifications via Chrome and will only block the ones that Google deems to be “disruptive.” The report suggests that the feature seems to be solely intended to keep Chrome spam-free.
Google has justified its decision by saying that these types of disruptive notifications violate the company’s “Developer Terms of Service.” This policy mentions not using Google APIs to send any form of spam. However, notifications in Google Chrome are dependent on Google-specific API, but by an open web standard that is supported by most browsers for more than 10 years.
