We’ve heard it all before, from “it’s not you, it’s me,” to “it’s just over.” We get it, sometimes it’s annoying to see our notifications pop up in your browser, even if we are trying to keep you informed. Although we hate to see you go, we thought it would be better if we were the ones to show you how to disable push notifications in your browser. To opt out of our notifications, simply follow the instructions below.
