Hey, it’s Stephen with your latest tech update.
I’m sure this has happened to you. You visit a website, and a pop-up asks if it can send you notifications.
You click yes… and within a few days you totally regret it.
It’s one thing to get the random news update. And another to be bombarded with alerts.
This has a name. It’s called notification spam and it can kill productivity in your business.
There’s good news. Google’s working on a new feature to automatically block alerts from websites it’s decided are ‘abusive’ or ‘disruptive’.
Once blocked, the site won’t be able to ask permission to send notifications.
We’re not sure when this new feature will be released. So, if you need help reducing notification spam for your staff before then, get in touch.
That’s your tech update, more next week.
