To update the code with a new FCC standard, Android has recently added the "Emergency Shipments" feature to your smartphone Be notified if one is displayed A potential security threat or amber alert is appropriate in your area. Even if your phone is muted, your device will emit a loud, piercing sound when a potential threat of these emergency notifications occurs.
However, many users already have their own solution to get notified about emergency situations. In addition, the vast majority of these notifications concern events that are not life-threatening, such as severe thunderstorm warnings and other weather events. Whatever your reason, if you want to remove these notifications, I will show you below how to disable them.
Disabling All Emergency Alerts
Note: If you have a Samsung phone, you can t Disable All Alerts at Once. Proceed to the next section to learn how to disable individual types of emergency alarms.
If you do not want your phone to beep aloud in a emergency situation on most Android models, all you have to do is disable one option. Go to the Settings main menu of Android and select "Apps & Notifications", tap "Advanced" and select "Emergency Notifications". From there, uncheck the box next to "Allow alarms" to disable all types of emergency messages. Note that this does not include presidential alarms that can not be disabled on any device without root.
If you would like to be notified of certain emergency situations, but prefer to do so In situations where the phone is not life-threatening, there are two ways to accomplish this.
For most Android models, go to Settings -> Apps & Notifications -> Advanced -> Emergency Notifications. From there, you can simply turn off switching next to any kind of notification that you no longer want to receive.
Disabling the AMBER notifications option stops notifications when a child is missing or an elderly person is away. Of the next three options, "serious threats" and "public safety announcements" are less important. Uncheck them and leave "Extreme Threats" enabled if you only want to be notified of the most urgent situations. Finally, disable Required monthly test and Status and local tests to stop receiving alerts that are only for testing the emergency call system.
When you use a Samsung Galaxy device on a UI, these settings are something harder to find. Open the "Messages" app. Since there are many apps known as "News", the following screenshot shows you which app to search for in your app drawer.
On the main Samsung Messaging app screen, tap the top right corner of the menu button and select Settings. Next, go to "Emergency notification settings" and see options for changing how you are notified about these notifications. Because you want to disable these warnings tap "Emergency Alerts" at the top of the screen and then disable the toggle switches next to the alerts that you no longer want to receive.
As previously mentioned If you only want to be informed of the most urgent emergencies, you can disable "AMBER Alerts" and "Fatal Alerts" and then enable "Extreme Alerts" to keep track of events such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and other life-threatening events to become events.
