How to disable and customize Facebook notifications. Receive continuous notifications from facebook on your smartphone or via email and would you like to deactivate them or customize them according to your needs?

Now we will tell you how you can check Facebook notifications.

How to disable and customize Facebook notifications

Via Facebook on a web browser

Log in to Facebook click the drop-down arrow in the top right and select Settings.


Then, select Notifications from the sidebar. You can also go directly to it by doing.


Bottom Notification settings, four options will be displayed: On Facebook, Email, Computer and mobile devices, and SMS.

To change the notifications you receive through each channel, click Edit. Each menu has a different range of options. Let's start with on Facebook.

Here you control which notifications appear in the Notifications menu when you log into Facebook. You can also turn off the sounds if you don't want Facebook to beep every time someone likes your photo.

Set up Facebook notifications on email

We will review the options under email.

There are a wide variety of options for what you can receive via email. Click Activate next to the one you want to receive. If you want to turn off an email notification, you need to click Unsubscribe at the bottom of the email itself.

If you do not want to receive email notifications, select Only notifications related to your account, security and privacy ... .. This way you'll only be notified by email when important things happen, like someone requesting a password reset.

Set up Facebook notifications on computers and mobile devices

On Computers and mobile devices, you can control which push notifications you receive via the Facebook mobile app. Unfortunately, you can only turn on notifications you've turned off in the past.



In SMS You can enable or disable text notifications and decide whether you want to be notified about comments or posts, friend requests or all other SMS notifications.

Your iPhone or iPad

Managing Facebook notifications on an iOS device is actually a little tricky, as various features are spread across different locations. If you want to turn off all push notifications, the easiest thing to do is to go to your iPhone or iPad's Settings> Notifications> Facebook and turn off Allow notifications.

To manage notifications with a little more nuance, open the Facebook app and go to Settings> Account Settings> Notifications.

There are two groups of options here: How you get notifications and what notifications you get.

How you get notifications controls how notifications are sent. The controls here are less granular than on the website, so if you want to customize the notifications you see on Facebook or the emails you receive, it's best to do it there.


To check which push notifications you receive on your iPhone, tap Mobile.

Your Android

Open the Facebook app and go to Notification settings pressing the three horizontal lines at the top right and scrolling at the bottom.

Facebook's Android app actually has the best notification management settings. Select the activity you want or don't want to receive notifications, such as Activity about you or Friend requests, then use the three toggle buttons: Push, Email and SMS to decide how you want to be notified. If you turn off all three, you'll only get a notification in the app.


You can also turn off push notifications completely by selecting Push at the bottom of Notification settings and turning on Do not disturb.
