Turning off notifications from Google


On my phone I get notifications stating "xx minutes to home, light traffic". Today I was in Walmart and notification popped up asking "are you in walmart?"

How can I turn these off, I get tired of Google asking me "do I want to see this" or "do I want to see that"

either until Google Now/Assistant (hold home button and check options from there), or in Maps (menu> settings> notifications> traffic)

1.)Turn off your GPS.
2.)Go to settings>apps>all apps or show system apps,go in to maps,or google app, or google earth and select notifications and switch on block notifications.
3.)when notification pops up in the notifications bar,long press the unwanted notification and when the notification option appears tap the icon shaped like a bell and it should block notifications from that source.
