Have you been convinced that Less Notifications is a tremendously helpful extension? In reality, it is only somewhat helpful, and its services are certainly not completely necessary.

So, how do you get rid of notifications and unwanted extensions? Keep reading to find out.
It does not make sense for Less Notifications to make changes to the default search provider either. Once you install this extension, it is meant to display an icon at the top of your browser that provides a link to the Notifications menu. It is strange that “In order to provide the extension feature, your default search settings would be modified.” This is the information you are introduced to along with the installer at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/less-notifications/ffdlfbiemgajjagapbhaajdldidhdhfn. This is where Chrome users install the extension from, although the official website is lessnotifications.com. So, did you expect Less Notifications to change your search settings to search.lessnotifications.com, collect information about you, share information with unknown parties, and also show advertisements? Most likely, you did not. These are the reasons our research team classifies the extension as a PUP, or potentially unwanted program. It is also important to note that this PUP is not very useful, given that anyone can remove and block unwanted notifications without any extensions.
The two guides below show how to remove Less Notifications and also how to delete unwanted notifications from Google Chrome. It should not be difficult to follow the presented steps, but you can always post your questions and concerns below if you need help and assistance from our research team.
