Default Google Chrome Notifications Are Saying That My PC Has Been Hacked And Has Viruses

When I went onto the internet using Google Chrome, I had endless notifications from Google Chrome popping up and saying that my computer has been hacked and contains viruses. I didn't click onto the pop ups as I'm aware that pop ups like these can often be viruses themselves, or virus protection softwares trying to scare you into buying virus protection. I checked my computer settings and ran some scans and everything appeared to be in order; no viruses were detected and there was no mention of my computer being hacked or anything like that. The notifications from Chrome kept popping up, until I disabled notifications from Chrome as it ended up getting on my nerves. I'm just wondering if my computer is safe and what the deal with all the pop ups was?
