Turn App Notifications On / Off - Android®

App notifications give you the ability to customize and control which capabilities you give apps. You can pick and choose which notifications to grant apps at the time of use.

Note Notes:

  • Downloaded apps designed for Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) and up only ask for notification permission the first time you use a feature rather than asking out of context.
  • Turning off certain notifications may result in basic app features no longer working as intended.

 

  1. From the Apps screen, navigate: Settings > Apps > App Manager.
    Note Alternatively, navigate: Settings > Application Manager.
    Note For Oreo OS, navigate: Settings > Apps & notifications > App info.
  2. Tap the appropriate app then tap Notifications.
    Note For Oreo OS, tap App notifications.
  3. Tap any of the available options (e.g., Allow Notifications, Block, Show silently, Priority, etc.) to turn on or off.
