How do I disable a pop-up blocker on Google Chrome?

Block or allow pop-ups in Chrome

By default, Google Chrome blocks pop-ups from automatically showing up on your screen. When a pop-up is blocked, the address bar will be marked Pop-up blocked. You can also decide to allow pop-ups.

If you still get pop-ups after disabling them:

Change your default pop-ups & redirects settings

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More > Settings.
  3. Click Privacy and securitySite Settings > Pop-ups and redirects.
  4. Choose the option that you want as your default setting.

Manage pop-ups & redirects for a specific site

Not all pop-ups are ads or spam. Some legitimate websites display web content in pop-up windows.

Block notifications

If you still get communications from a site after disabling pop-ups, you may be subscribed to notifications. To turn off notifications for a site:

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. Go to the site you get notifications from.
  3. Click View site information.
  4. Next to “Notifications,” select Block from the drop down menu.

You can also block notifications from your site settings.
