Every day I am asked to accept "Push Notifications". When I decline, I am offered the choice of "Never ask Again", which I select every time. The the next time I log in, I am again asked if I want to accept push notifications. What part of NEVER AS AGAIN does the system not understand?

If you are using Chrome, here is how to stop that:

Allow or block notifications from all sites

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More
    and then
    Settings.
  3. Under "Privacy and security," click Site settings.
  4. Click Notifications.
  5. Choose to block or allow notifications:
    • Allow or Block all: Turn on or off Sites can ask to send notifications.
    • Block a site: Next to "Block," click Add. Enter the site and click Add.
    • Allow a site: Next to "Allow," click Add. Enter the site and click Add.
    • Allow quieter notification prompts: Allow sites to ask to send notifications, then click Use quieter messaging (blocks notification prompts from interrupting you). You won't get notifications after you ignore multiple notifications from a site, or if other users typically don't allow notifications from a site.

I have only been asked once, but I stay logged in on my tablet and computer. They never leave home and we have a security on our internet.

I use opera. I would think this option would be connected to the user login setting, not the user's browser. If it can be turned off great, if not, then I will just keep telling it NO.

I had it when using firefox, even with the browser closed I got notifications, it wasn't bad but i got annoyed when you guys were hot on a topic and I kept getting popups after popups when I was trying to use a spreadsheet. You guys pissed me off so much I turned it off lol.

Could it be that you have it set to clear the cache when closing the browser and that is resetting it?
