The QuizUp app for the iPhone is a very popular trivia game that allows you to challenge people all over the world in a variety of interesting categories. It’s free, easy-to-use, and their trivia categories are only expanding.
It also integrates easily with Facebook, and you are sure to find at least a few friends that play the app. You can friend them in the game, allowing you to issue and respond to challenges. But as your friend list grows in the game, you can start to receive a high number of alerts. If you find that they are too distracting, you can follow the steps below to turn off the QuizUp alerts on your iPhone.
Disable QuizUp iPhone Alerts
These steps were performed in iOS 7, on an iPhone 5. The method for earlier versions of iOS is very similar, but your screens will look different.
We are going to be turning off alerts completely. If you left the default alert settings for QuizUp, then those might be a little overwhelming. But if you still want to see occasional alerts, you could elect to use the banners option, or you could choose to customize the rest of the options on the menu that we will encounter in step 4 below. Everyone has different preferences for their iPhone notifications, so it can be helpful to adjust them accordingly until you have a combination of settings with which you are happy.
Step 1: Touch the Settings icon.
Step 2: Scroll down and touch the Notification Center option.
Step 3: Scroll down and select the QuizUp option.
Step 4: Select the None option at the top of the screen. As mentioned previously, note that there are several other notification customization options on this screen that you could choose to modify instead if you want to keep some elements of your alerts intact.
Did you know that you can adjust the way your text message notifications display, too? For example, learn how to stop showing text messages previews on your lock screen.
