If you keep seeing pop-up notification messages from Google Chrome that say “You have (1) new message” and “Click here to read it” there could be a problem with your Chrome notification settings. A rogue website may have been added to the “Allow” list without your knowledge. If this is the case you might notice the “You have (1) new message” pop-up every time you start your computer or launch your browser.

You have 1 new message

There is also a chance that a notification you are seeing is from a legitimate source such as a website that you recently attempted to download something from. However, as shown in the image above, the website news-notification.tools is not a legitimate website and the URL should be added to the block list to avoid future notification messages from the site.

If you want to remove the You have (1) new message pop-up message here is a guide that shows you how to turn off Google Chrome notifications and block or remove notifications that you simply do not want to see from a specific site.

  1. Go to Settings > Advanced > Privacy and security > Content settings > Notifications (or visit: chrome://settings/content/notifications).
  2. To turn off Google Chrome notification messages move the blue toggle next to the Ask before sending feature. It will say Blocked when this is complete.
  3. To block or remove a specific notification that you do not want to see go to Allow and locate the website the notification is from in the list. Click the URL settings and select Block or Remove to either block or remove the site from showing you notifications. You can also manually add the URL of the website you want to block to the Block list.
