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?
It only takes one person to be right.
