Safari 6/7 (Mavericks): Manage website notifications

If you let websites push notifications to you, they appear in Notification Center on your Mac. For example, you can let a news website push updates, and then click its notification to go to the website. The website doesn’t have to be open in a Safari window, and Safari doesn’t even have to be open. Notifications require OS X v10.8 or later.

Do any of the following:
Option Description
See notifications in Notification Center: Click the Notification Center icon at the right end of the menu bar, or swipe left from the right edge of the screen.


To go to a website that sent you a notification, click the notification in Notification Center.

Change website notification permissions: Choose Safari > Preferences, click Notifications, then select Allow or Deny for a website.
Change website alert preferences: Open Notifications preferences, select the website on the left, then change the notification alert style and other settings on the right.
