How can I disable push notifications about new stories?

The Open Mic uses push notifications to notify our incredible readers about new stories the moment they’re published on The Open Mic.

Right now we’ve added this functionality for all users who use Google Chrome.

Our intention was to create a fun and engaging way to notify our audience about new posts and stories.

And frankly speaking it works quite well.

We’ve seen a significant increase in the number of comments, views and shares.

All of which motivates our amazing contributors to share even more, give back to the translation community and help us make this industry a little bit betterone story at a time.

We believe it’s a great cause, but we realize that this kind of interactivity may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

We’re really sorry if you find these notifications annoying and apologize for any inconvenience.

If you want to disable them in Google Chrome there are two ways to do it:

  1. Go to The Open Mic and click on the green padlock that you see in your browser’s search bar and change the notification settings on the Permissions tab.
