How to get rid of notifications without deleting WhatsApp – News

WhatsApp is probably your favorite app for instant messaging, but sometimes texting on the app gets overwhelming, so much so that you want to take a break from it. However, it is also not easy to ignore it when the notification tone is played. For this, you see the option to turn off your internet connection only. But in this case you run the risk of missing out on updates to other important apps like Gmail. In this article we will show you how to turn off WhatsApp notifications completely without uninstalling the app.

There are some third party applications that can restrict internet access to certain apps like WhatsApp on your phone so that there are no notifications from that particular app to distract you. For example, Google Digital Wellbeing allows users to control notifications from apps and help them avoid using social media applications. But some users do not consider it a 100% effective way, which will keep them away from using those apps. Certain third party applications can also pose a security risk and your data may be compromised.
Alternatively, you can mute WhatsApp by changing your phone’s settings.

How to completely turn off WhatsApp notifications

Turn off all notifications in WhatsApp
First of all you disable notification alert for WhatsApp.
For this you see these settings-
WhatsApp > Settings > Notifications > In this you select ‘None’ in the notification tone menu for Messages.
Now you can turn off the vibration, select “None” in the “Light” option and also turn off “Use high priority notifications”. All the same steps are applicable in group settings as well.

Disable notifications from general Android Settings

Android also sends notifications for system apps. So to be completely cut-off from WhatsApp, you have to turn off notifications. For that do these steps – Settings > Apps and Notifications > Apps > Select WhatsApp > Notifications > Turn off “All WhatsApp Notifications” here.

Revoke Permissions and Disable Mobile Data Usage in Background

The third step is to further paralyze the app.
For this, do these steps- Settings > Apps and Notifications > Apps > Select WhatsApp
Here under Permissions revoke all permissions that allow WhatsApp to access the camera, microphone and files on your smartphone. Tap on Mobile Data and disable mobile data usage in the background.

‘Force Stop’ WhatsApp

After revoking all permissions and disabling mobile data usage in the background, go to the previous screen and ‘Force Stop’ the app. By doing this the app will not work and you will not get any notification. However, if you need to check messages on the app, you can simply open WhatsApp on your device.

That way, you’ll be able to stay away from heavy texting on WhatsApp without deleting the app or turning off your internet connection. Plus, you’ll be virtually invisible to your contacts.
