Notifications Off [Root]

ROOT is required for the app to work.

Notifications Off is a useful utility for controlling application notifications in a centralized way. Instead of toggling notifications for applications individually from the settings screen you can turn off notifications for all applications from one place.

Using the new 'Profiles' feature you can keep multiple pre-configured profiles and quickly switch between them with a single click on a shortcut on your home screen. Or, you can completely automate it with Tasker integration.

Notifications Off can also automatically disable notifications for new applications as soon as they are installed.

Please do not leave one star reviews if it does not work for you. Instead email your device details (model, superuser app and version) to [email protected] so that I can help you.

Super Simple Super simple. It tells you what it is going to do in its title, and that is what it does. Tiny file, no unnecessary "features," and no obnoxious ads. One-tap fix to obnoxious and redundant notifications that plague the android interface, it even works for ads that re-enable their notifications! The one thing I would really like to see if it was possible is an automatic application or a click-to-enable shortcut that can be placed on the home screen. No stars lost for my wishes though, keep on being awesome

Jay Yee

best app for my sanity! perfect, no more annoying notifications, but i can still get phone calls and hear my alarm clock ヅ

Mahesh R S

fantastic app ... this is the most useful app i have found+installed+used in a long time. very simply: this app helps you get control over your notifications. you can disable all notifications. or you can choose which notifications you want. best part is that you can create multiple profiles and use the one appropriate for that moment. gr8 app.

Kym Morris

Fantastic Excellent app, and when it stopped working on lollipop, the developer did all he could to resolve the issues. Thank you! If you are on lollipop and this doesn't work, remember to upgrade SuperSU to 2.23.

Micah Jordan

Does just what it says! Deep sleep battery saver and peek are great apps, but they both take up space in my notification drawer, and now it's clear again!

Anna OwO

Simple and it works This app allowed me to remove the system update notification on my S5 mini. It was impossible to disable the notification from the stock Samsung application settings and I didn't wanna lose root access by updating.

Eduvigis Robaesteras

Perfect as far as I'm aware This is as good as it gets. Does one thing, and does it well. It's like peace of mind bottled inside an app, especially if you stand on the OCD side of things and hate clutter.

Paul Byoun

Eliminates redundant notifications I use NotificationsOff to turn email and calendar notifications off when I am connected to WiFi (Tasker) at work since I have my laptop's notifications.

Johhny tst

This is sweet Was going to sleep but then I remembered that shadow fight would get me notifications. However I was waiting a phone call sometime in the morning. Thankfully I got here! This app is free and mazing. I rate 5/5 and I would rate more if I could.

Janie Maresova

Perfect It is really cool. Good idea and easy to use. Good job!

Tarek Jarrah

Great and unique app idea but missing features Dev. thank you indeed for developing this very unique app, but PLEASE features r extremely needed. 1- WIDGET support for easy and fast control, by ONE CLICK to turn on a profile or turn off which will bring back to defaulted profile. 2- Security lock to access the app. 3-Group the unticked apps at the top of the list for easy and fast revision, especially when u have more than 600 apps list. (These features could be offered in a paid version)

MilloNadia River Plate

Edit your description If rooting your phone is mandatory for this app to work you should put it on your description. Less time wasted and you'd saved the 1 star.

Tom Ferrier

Exactly what I needed! Using a rooted Nexus 5 running 5.0. Nexus devices throw so many incremental updates and I'd rather not update and have to re-root from 5.0.0-5.0.1 (waiting for a few major changes) yet with no option to disable the annoying update banner I was at a loss, until I tried this! Also useful to get rid of annoying notifications from paid apps- I'm looking at you SwiftKey.. I don't care how many keystroke milestones I hit, I paid for the app, I don't want your garbage!

Martin Damgaard - Hansen

Looks good - doesn't work When I open it, it says: "Root not available Notifications Off needs superuser permissions to work" Hope you can fix it, cause I need this app :)

Dee Asus

Perfect! Finally rid of the constant, fixed system notifications that come as standard with Asus Transformer Infinity. There were four, and they were huge. Thanks!

Brandy A. Brown

My phone doesn't get to tell me what to do. Works great, especially for all those apps that don't give you choices about notifications (ahem, Google).

Javier Blanco

Very useful! I love this app. I even use the widget so I can pick my profile at any time, like in a meeting of when I'm at work. What I miss here is DashClock integration. Great app! Best I could find!

John Alvin Intal

Nice app! I've been looking for this app/tweak for months! Love the uncluttered notifications panel of my Samsung S4! There's one glitch though, it cannot stop the persistent notification by "Go Notifier". If this can be fix I'll give it 5 stars!

Mikell Czermendy

Essential Don't know how I would deal with kitkat forcing background running apps to clutter up my notification bar without this. It's the single most important app in keeping my phone tidy and maximizing productivity. Wish I could donate.

Aliff Amirul

Very useful app ;) thanks for solving my problem . Now i can notice my downloading app

Gabriel R

Doesn't work in S4 My phone is rooted. Can't batch enable notifications. The developer helped me to restore them. If this happens to you just find /data/sysyen/notification-policy.xml and delete it as root. Thanks!!

Keisha Nathanie

Help please Why it can't work on LG-pro-lite, it saids that they have a problem on the root stuff thingy, help please

Matthew Norris

Does what the title says If this app doesn't work for you, get root access and you should have no problems. Great app to remove annoying notifications in the status bar.

Saima Pervaiz

Super cool app This app is super cool that get rid of annoying and risky notification

Jenn Smith

I disabled notifications on a bunch of apps, and I didn't remember which ones they were. This helped me see everything in one view. Thank you

David Short

Does what it says!! Finally got rid off notifications for android upgrade when,with a rooted tablet it wouldn't work anyway

Enot Racoon

Root needed You should add to descrip , that app doesn't work without root

Reyhan R. R.

Make my paid apps broken After disable the notification one of my paid apps, it wont show notification again when I enable it

Murphy Adamy

Pretty useful It gets rid of any persistent notification which is irritating (such as a free version of app)

Craig Kinzel

Superuser what? Error msg before it opens What is a superuser? I just want to use this app really bad if I can actually open it notification off needs superuser permission in order to work I'd give it five if it worked

Jim Becker

Good app Works well and us easy to use. Not only that, the dev makes updates from user suggestions. :>)

John Walker

An Obvious Solution to a Nagging Problem With Notifications Off, I don't have to visually sort through my many, mostly meaningless, on-going notifications to filter out what matters most to me. This definitely should be built into the OS. Also, the very responsive dev assures me that the app simply hides the notifications, so there is no loss of background function. It's intuitive to use, and the addition of the Profiles feature is really a nice touch.

Jun Rey Torres

Doesn't work It keeps telling I need super permission to open it.

Galatanu Adrian

Very very good app! I like it very much ! I recommand with all my hearth!

Gaurav Solanki

Awesome app Get rid of your notifications but you need to be rooted.....thanks alot for making this app :)

David Gibson

Very useful Ideal for working alongside root features of Greenify and other apps that require persistence.

Kent Fredric

Peace and quiet Finally some peace and quiet without having to either a) Go into every app and convince it to shut up b) mute the whole phone and miss calls/sms Very minimal interface and does exactly what its supposed to. Also, as is important for an app like this: No Ads <3.

Steven Ebeling

Excellent work I hate pesky notifications. This has done the job of tirning those off. Used on my s4 and now my note 4. However on the note 4 had to update to su 2.49. This was at the recommendation of the developer. They where very quick to my request for support.

Al Smolkin

Phenomenal! Perfect for disabling "Location set by GPS" on Galaxy Note 3

kadyra reddick

Does the job I turned everything off . Now I'm only adding what I need.

Liz Bee

Good! ☺ Very good!

Anissa Hodges

Where has this been my while life?? Even rooted using exposed and wanam there were still apps that i found not removed or hide notifications from. Now i can. This is the bomb!

Elwin Streekstra

Okay but i prefer SnoozIT! It does what it says, but i like SnoozIT! more then this, because this is not temporarily, and doesn't show you the notifications that should've been posted if this app wasn't on. Also, SnoozIT! doesn't need root access!

Nathan Woolmore

Thank u!! Finally I could get rid of my xperia update notification this was the only way I could find since my phone is rooted, for that ur app gets 5 stars :)

raphael alex

YES! Just what I wanted! simple UI though, but does the job. It also work with profiles. =D

Derek Potts

Down to business This app is no-nonsense, does what it says very well, and doesn't junk things up with ads. Even better, the developer responds to questions via email, and promptly!

Marc LaBelle

It works If it wasn't so slow to apply, could turn off the LED completely, and had a toggle for night mode, it would be 5 stars. Otherwise, it's the only app I found to turn off notifications. I imagine it takes a little while in code to roll through all the apps settings one by one and turn off notifications. The less apps you turn off notifications, the faster it is applied.

Lawrence Krueger

System Notifications Anyway to disable the WiFi and GPS notifications, other simply turning them off?

Christopher Scott

I MISS YOU! Last reviewed in beginning of 2014. Sigh. I love this app, and will reinstall as SOON as they figure out root for the VZW Note Edge.

Aaron Travis

Notification Hider I took my SIM card out and was sick of seeing the notification for it. With this app I could turn System UI off. Just what I wanted to do. Thank you

Thulio Pinto

Has to be rooted... I dont wanna root my device before the warranty expires... So its not gonna work for me till then.. But 5 stars for what it does!!!

Brice Bauer

Lastpass Just found the app and created two test profiles. One to hide the lastpass notification and one to show it. It hides without any problem, but when activating profile to have it return it wouldn't work. Needed to go into lastpass and then uncheck and recheck notification and it would come back. Disappointed

Melanie Cooper

The device has to be rooted . it should be mentioned in the description. Maybe you should have more of quick description then get rid of those pesky notifications. Make sure your device is rooted. I wanted to stop all notications from fb because i have a limited data plan and i think that it may help. If one does not want to void the warranty on your phone use notify block it works on my new phone. That app works for unrooted devices

Steven Raynham

Simple & it works Not sure why other reviewers give this 1 star. If you're capable of reading app descriptions before you install then you'll find this app very useful for clearing up your notification area of useless info. Otherwise take no notice of the people who seem to defy Darwinism and managed to survive long enough to own a smartphone without swallowing it or stick their fingers in electrical sockets. To the developer, keep up the good work.

Hugo Blue

Delay Add a 10 second delay to the "root not detected" message so that my system will have time to grant access to the app, my device IS rooted, doesn't have enough time before app's detection kicks in.


Great app Been having issues with auto disable notifications for newly installed apps. Other than that, great app!

Ralph Bragg

Simple Notification Management Very easy and straight forward way to manage all of you notifications in one place. I like the option of multiple profiles and the ability to automatically disable notifications on newly installed apps. And the best part it that it is free and there are no ads. This dev really did a great job. It is the best notification app available. So what are you waiting for already... Install it, you won't regret it.

Edward Acosta Hurtado

Messenger still works!!! :/ Till now I'm testing, all other apps stopped their notifications, messenger except!!!, which works normally as before this app was installed, I hope developer release a fix asap , Gob bless u, bye.

Dean Wadsworth

Move to sdcard warning I still have 6gig free. Warning is obviously a pos. This app disabled it even when Sony wouldn't allow it through regular settings!

Bayu Putra

Superb For a gamer, this is "must have" app. No more notification when you playing a game on your phone. Just need a widget, because my launcher can't support shortcut

Sharif Ibrahim

Great Tool, Saved time Save me time to disable all notification at once also with profile I can pick which I should disable while sleep.

Jameson Grieve

Doesn't Detect Root The message not to leave a bad review as its not rooted pops up behind "Root permission given". Needs a lot of work.

Leslie Chan

Awesome Works exactly as described, no fluff. Was having issues before but developer was very quick in responding and issuing an update. Thanks!

Daniel Brewer

Thank you! This app works as described. I had another app (a game) that kept sending me notifications. Even after I turned them off through the settings, they would reset itself and poof, more notifications! This app put a stop to it and it stays off even after restating the device.

Makarima Fahreza Fathony

Works! I have Asus Padfone S. Everytime I dock / undock, there is always a notification about External Storage Mounted. It's super annoying, but, thanks to this app, it's gone.

Pravin Ramana

5 Stars for what it does on friends tablet This is a review my friend wanted for me to give this review showing if works excellently.

Andrew Lovell

Needs root But did not say anything until I installed the pesky thing.. Thanks for wasting my time.. ,("please don't leave me a bad review") Well please be more open........

Lex Leonard

Perfect With Tasker I can actually turn the lollipop priority mode into a real priority mode.

Scott Oehler

Would be helpful to show current notifications and what causes them to know which system notification to block

Drealyn Williams

Works great with Tasker This app does exactly what I need it to do.

Casey Passeri

Notoffication Does what it's supposed to with no fuss. I would have named it Notoffication though :)

Craig Burger

Perfect! Works perfectly. Silences system apps. REQUIRES ROOT* Thanks Dev.

Daniel Scaffidi

Does exactly what the description says. I wanted a specific app's notification to be removed as there is no option in the app to do this and Notifications Off did the trick!

Robert Scott

Omg thank you so much This app works so well to hide to dumb notifications the only bad thing is the permission for root

Rohit Shrivastava

No root Same problem with me too. It don't detect root hence not worthy. Please look into it and help me to resolve this issue


My device is rooted So why doesn't the app work? Useless do not download

Dave Haigh

Perfect Works perfectly, saved me a load of trouble clicking through loads of applications in my settings. Thanks

Dave Tabuso

Must be rooted ☺?? This app is amazing!

Filippo Gariboli

Did not work Nice try but it didn't work!

Overunity X

latest ver works great! had trouble with this app before it was updated to 1.4.5. now it looks to be working on my Samsung s6. i really needed to suppress that nagging 'security alert' on rooted phones.

Thegamer457 Shou.TV

It works! With a rooted device take the check off the app to hide the notifications and press save. It dissapears like magic!


Hell yah!! My custom rom comes with a battery saver mode quick setting toggle and I needed to get rid of the "system ui" notification for battery saver mode. This app enables me to do that. I love it. Thanks devs!

Theeraphat Sunthornwit

Work only on rooted device, yeah it,s not your fault but you should have mentioned that on somewhere obvious b4 i have to installl it. Like the first line on what,s new section. Or ideally, on the main tagline or even on product name.

Jeff Howard

Nice and easy! Good job! Does what it's supposed to. Consider allowing a sort by status on the next version.

Mitchell Lafosse

Works as said I used this to hide the update notification.

Shahid Niazi

root not dected......but my device is already rooted......

Sai Hoshi

Not New phone. Wtf is "doesnt work on not rooted devices" . at least explain. I use internet date to download this app and u dont even put in description that it needs to be a "rooted" device (whatever that is. U dont even explain either) and u add to the text "pls dont rate bad" ..well... U get what u deserve. The least u couldve done was add a warning before people use their internet data on this thing.

Janis Froehlig

Decription says: ROOT REQUIRED I'm 3-starring it because I do think it messes with notifications left checked in one profile but not in another. I'm not sure, but I think I've complained to a BLE developer because of this app. It would be MUCH better to have the uninstall (restore notifications) process clearly documented. I'm also suspecting checked notifications are delayed, but that's a subjective hunch.

Alex Park

Battery life extended!!! easy to use, disable newly installed apps, saves battery life. DOWNLOAD now you won't be disappointed.


I have to give you one star Since you did not mention the device must be rooted in your description until i have installed the app.

Stephen Dawson

Great Explanation Thank you for explaining that this app would not help in my situation. My phone was not rooted

grant barney

Awesome I cannot update the unimportant ota update and I needed to disable the update notification... Thanks guys... BTW: all you noobs that don't even know what rooting means don't even download this- much less leave a stupid review. Overall this app = 11/10

Gajinder Singh

Does what it says Was getting sick of all the system notifications that I couldn't turn off since they were system apps - Now, thanks to this app I finally got rid of those annoying notifications. Loved it!


Good App, But Drains Battery + A Lot of app cache The app does what it says, but I have an issue with it creating more than 700mb of app cache a day and drains my battery like no other. Wish that could be reduced or fixed.

Debodirno Chandra

Does the work it is made for Clean material design. Light. Does the work. Good DND app.

Moss Doerksen

My phone was being buggy and I couldn't block notifications the normal way. This finally worked.

Cgirlrock 2704

My Device Has To Be Rootef This is just some stupid crap. Don't use this.


Works great! A must if you want to show your screen to anyone, without them seeing the very personal messages that might come. The widget makes it very convenient to switch from a profile to another. Suggestion: A widget "Use this profile for N hours then revert" would be extremely useful.

Michael Bryner

I do not know why people are complaining so much about your description and even after you fixed it too. I mean I just installed this and I read it needs to be rooted. Some people are just stupid or just completely do not try hard enough to read before reviewing apps. I LOVE THIS APP! I listen to my mp3s and they would skip and I found out by disabling most of the notifications it fixes the skipping mp3s. So this app is a life saver. I also love there is no ads either. At least I have not seen any yet but if I do, then I might drop the rating because they are so annoying that it is worthless to use an app with ads all over. So please keep this ad-less. I read a lot of the bad reviews and there just stupid to say crap about the root. I mean you can do a heck a lot more with a rooted phone than not rooted. Get over it people.

Rohan R

Didnt work on rooted device Note 3 Android 5.1 The app detected root and said it disabled system ui notifs after unchecking the box and hitting the save icon. Notifs still persistent after this. Sorry dev app isnt working bro.

Sean Piercy

It works well but there's no option to export. This app seems to work great but Android allows you to block notifications now so the only real benefit to having the app would be if you could export the list so you could restore it after a factory reset or upgrading your phone. Please add this feature in future versions.

Valerie Bruce

Bye bye, notifications! One issue, though... First off, I can't believe all the one star reviews because people don't know what "root" means, or didn't know rooting was necessary. It's clearly stated in the description! And Google is your friend. Anyway, this app is a Godsend. The only problem I'm having is that some apps are able to get through after they're updated, and it doesn't show that notifications are disabled in the profile. They're not checked as such. Not a huge deal, I just have to go into this app and resave the profile, but I thought the development team would want to know. Other than that, it's great. Thank you!

Chris Vydas

App wanted This is certainly a welcome addition and does exactly what it says. But I'm left wanting an app like this that offers more control, like consolidate all apps under a parent icon based on a broad category, like system, communication, other events, etc. Apparently no app like this exists. Too bad.

Auriga Mango

Perfect for China phones I have quite a few built-in apps on my meizu mx5, a China phone, which cannot be turned off without uninstalling them, which basically bricks the phone... So I have a lot of love for this app, saves me having to swipe away those same, pesky notifications! Only app that I've found that allows for me to turn off system ui notifications!

Lothar Dall'O

This app is able to stop ALL notifications from the System UI, including the extremely annoying "power saving mode enabled" thing which fills half the screen and which was only introduced in Marshmallow. Brilliant, thank you.

Yasamaru Ritsuki

Very usefull Finally got rid of those pesky notifications.

paul-antoine me

Simply Does not Work! Whether rooted or not this application does NOT work Please don't waste Our time - FAKE

Bradley Godbehere

REQUIRES ROOTED DEVICE Avoid if your device is not rooted, I downloaded expecting this to work and was met with a message upon loading the app saying I need a rooted device, followed by a message saying please don't leave a negative review as it doesn't help users, this will help people looking into downloading this app by not wasting their time.

Andrea Zeta

yo can't go without! a must to stop in block all annoyances from apps that should never have notifications enabled!

Not routed.. !! God knows what's that m not techy, I wanted to stop notifications and it did not worked, Simple.

Quadrplax fakename

Works on system apps. I got this app because of the WiFi calling notification which can't be disabled in Lollipop. This app worked fine for getting rid of it despite being unable to do so in settings.

Hal Halcyon

Been using it till it somehow broke notifications in random apps I've never unchecked
