How to handle notifications in Python with Selenium Chrome WebDriver

How can we handle Selenium Chrome WebDriver notifications in Python?

I am trying to dismiss/accept alert and active element. Also, all the Google search results are driving me to Java solution which I do not really need.

Below will help you:

You can disable the browser notifications, using chrome options.

chrome_options = webdriver.ChromeOptions()

prefs = {"profile.default_content_setting_values.notifications" : 2}

chrome_options.add_experimental_option("prefs",prefs)

driver = webdriver.Chrome(chrome_options=chrome_options)
