If you keep seeing pop-up notification messages from Google Chrome that say “Your movie is ready” and “Click to start your download” there could be a security issue with your Chrome notification settings. A rogue website might have been added to the “Allow” list without your knowledge and consent. If this is the case you might notice the “Your movie is ready” pop-up every time you start your computer or launch your browser.
As shown in the image above, the Your free movie is ready message is usually sent from a malicious website such as news-notification.tools. This means that the message is not legitimate, there is no movie ready for you to view or download. The message just wants you to download and install a rogue browser extension, a potentially unwanted program (PUP), or malware.
In some cases the message can be from a legitimate source such as a website that you recently attempted to download something from. However, this is not usually the case with these types of messages.
If you want to remove the Your movie is ready 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.
- Go to Settings > Advanced > Privacy and security > Content settings > Notifications (or visit: chrome://settings/content/notifications).
- 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.
- 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
