Notifications not going away on Snapchat

    When I used to have multiple snapchats in my notifications I could open one and it would remove the rest of them. Now when I open one the other notifications remain in my notification bar until I open each one. Is there a way that I can make the notifications work like they used too?

    Try to gently, slowly move the notification to one side or the other.

    A settings pinwheel should appear, where you will find multiple notification settings- if they are available.

    Well, when you make the proper change, then the notification will disappear.

    Until then, you go back and forth, resetting what you changed until that happens.

    Alternatively, your device may allow you to modify the notification importance of each app.

    Typically, this is on a scale of 1-5, with 3 being the default (auto, or 'A').

    Devices differ, but on my devices the path to this level of control comes from the System UI Tuner (SUIT, as I will refer to it).

    This SUIT is different for all devices.

    To make it available to you, start at your homescreen.

    Pull down your Quick Settings tile menu, and locate the settings pinwheel.

    Long press it, for about 10-15 seconds, until it animates (spins).

    Let off of it, and allow it with the question(s) you are asked.

    Once activated, you can now find it as System UI Tuner in your settings.

    It may be buried inside another setting, like System, or near the end of the list near Developer Options.

    At any rate, some devices have some cool features in there, one of which can be notification priority control (can be called many things).

    In fact, on the 8.1.0 that I am using right now, that control is active no matter what.
    I had to activate the SUIT to
    get it on my 7.1.1

    When you slide the notification over to the side, and the menu options appear, is there a sightly dim letter 'A' on the left?

    If so, tap it.

    You may be lucky, and the setting may be right there.

    If so, lower the notification priority until the notification in your status bar vanishes.

    Well, to be honest, when I have an app that is a pest, I turn notifications off period.

    Aren't you on the app often enough to get any 'missed' notifications in a timely manner?

    Is there a site that you can visit with your browser, instead of using the app?

    You are much better off just using your browser to access social media sites.

    First, no notifications unless you are in the app.
    These apps all have a notification area to get your missed messages- so there is no point in the annoying little marker on your screen.

    Second, your browser can be (and probably is) more secure than the app. Apps are provided by social media sites in order to mine your device for information.




    Lightning is the original, the others have different options available.

    In fact, you can put all of your social media sites onto these browsers as bookmarks.

    If you allow cookies, and don't clear them, then you will stay logged in.

    If you eliminate all of your social media apps, and use a browser to access them instead, you can save a huge amount of space on your device and increase your security.

    And no more notifications from an app that you probably visit the site multiple times a day anyway.
