    As you can see those are not Apps. but advertisements. BTW: After I get ti apps, notifications then what?
    Which Android version is your Note 4 running? In general if you long press one of those notifications you can go the app settings after you tap the "i" info icon. Then disable notifications for the app. The right steps could be slightly different depending on your version.

    From the icon, all these are Chrome notifications. Whenever you visited a (dodgy) site, pretty sure the option to allow notifications popped up and probably either skipped through it or selected YES on purpose...either way, it's a site pushing these.

    You can open Chrome on your device, tap the menu button (three dots, top right corner), go to SITE SETTINGS, and find the Notifications section. There you'll see which sites are allowed and which ones are blocked from sending you push notifications. The ads are coming from a site you've allowed. Just remove that site and the ads should stop.

    These are ads from your apps or news app
    Disable your news app , start from there .

    Ok, some of those are ads, some aren't. With the notification panel swiped down, long-press one of the ad ones (like the cruisecritic or opinionshareresearch one), and tap App Info. Which app is giving you the notification?

    I'm guessing it's your browser. There is an option in the browser to allow notifications from specific websites. It's possible you happened to be on one of those websites (probably as a popup ad) and inadvertently accepted notifications. You can get rid of them by opening the browser, tapping Menu>Settings>Site settings>Notifications, and look at the Allowed list. If you find sites there that you don't want notifications from, tap them, then Notifications, then turn off the notification toggle for that site (or tap the Clear & Reset button).

    Also, many sites include a bell floating icon at the bottom to get hot tips and whatnot. As a general rule don't touch that icon. How to delete these icons?-screenshot_20190830-125159.jpeg

    Funny, I was looking through my Blocked Sites list for Chrome notifications, and CruiseCritic was there as well! It's a legit site -- I recall looking through it a while ago for cruise info and forum discussions, but it seems like they really like to bombard people with ads.

    Which browser are you using now? That kind of junk can show up regardless of the browser.
