How can I remove 2.go4news.biz from my mac?

I have been to Settings/Notifications already, but it doesn't seem to block them...

Hello,
Welcome to MalwareTips!

Can you please check again to see if it's still there or not:
  1. In the top right corner, click on Chrome’s main menu button (three vertical dots).
  2. Click on “Settings“.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “Advanced“.
  4. In the Privacy and Security section, click on “Site settings“.
  5. Click on “Notifications“.
  6. In the Allowed section, find the go4news.biz site and click the three vertical dots button, then click on “Remove”.

HI! I have removed it from "Allowed". But I see that it is also in "Blocked". Should I remove it also from there or should I leave it? Thanks a lot!

You ca leave it there, it won't do any harm. Do you still see those pop-ups after you've removed it from Allowed?
