Reset browser permission for web push notifications

Many issues related to web push notifications can be solved by simply resetting the browser permission. That removes the old browser subscription and creates a new subscription. 

In order to reset his subscription, a user needs to:

  1. Open the website for which he wants to reset the browser permission
  2. Click the green lock near the address bar
  3. Go to the “Notifications” section and select “Ask (default)”

An alternative is to go to the general browser settings and remove the permission from there. For example in Chrome go to Preferences -> Privacy and security -> Content settings -> Notifications and click “Remove” near the permission.
