Trying to allow exceptions through Do Not Disturb

    I have recently got a Samsung Galaxy A51 and I want to let certain apps through Do Not Disturb at night so that I get a vibrate notification for them (e.g. Security Camera, Whatsapp). However, I can't find a setting that allows this on my phone. Elsewhere, I have been told that to find it I long press on app => App Info => Notifications => and there is an Ignore Do Not Disturb slider, but it doesn't appear for me. Is there something that I'm missing, and if not is there an external app or program that I can download in order to get the same effect?

    Everbody's device is different, but on mine...

    Do Not Disturb preferences
    Automatic rules

    You may need to activate Do Not Disturb mode first.
    (not sure)

    To do this, find the quick setting tile on your pull down menu that controls the ringer.
    Tap it multiple times, and Do Not Disturb is one of the options.
