How to stop Android notifications from popping up

Android notifications are great, but they are not without flaws. Some notifications can be annoying to see pop up on the screen, especially if they are unimportant. Fortunately, in this article, we’ll show you how to stop Android notifications from popping up.

The bad news is that pop-up notifications cannot be switched off at once. You’ll have to do it individually through an app. The process is simple, so if you repeat it every time an annoying notification arrives, you’ll have everything cleaned up in no time.
