3. Make notifications less intrusive

3. Make notifications less intrusive

  1. Sound: An audible notification is the most interruptive and should only be granted to essential or harmless apps – banking, work IM, file downloader, or calls.
  2. Sight: After sound, visual triggers are the next level of interruption. Allow notifications that matter the most while you are using your phone – ongoing chats in meetings, OTP from SMS, etc.
