    Tap on the bubble to the right of "Notifications" to enable or disable the option
    .
    This is the recommended option, and it is indicated as activated by the circle icon being colored blue. With the option activated, if a site wants to send us a notification it will have to ask us if we want to receive it or ask if they can send us the notification. When the option is enabled, the blue button will turn grey and it will say "Blocked" underneath "Notifications". This means all notifications will be blocked and any site trying to send us a notification won't be allowed and will be blocked from contacting us or notifying us.
