BlackBerry 10 Hub

One of the most prominent features of the BlackBerry 10 platform is the Hub, aptly named as it is where everything comes together. All your emails, text messages, Twitter mentions, Facebook messages, BBM messages and notifications are gathered so you can see them all in one place.

While there will be many who will want everything to show up in the Hub, there will be others who may want it a bit more streamlined and only want to show certain accounts in the Hub, perhaps just your more important email accounts. If this is you then there is a way to filter out the unwanted accounts.

Here's how to filter your accounts for the Hub:

  • Go into the Hub by swiping up from the bottom and to the right of the screen
  • Tap the overflow icon (three dots) on the bottom right and select Settings
  • Tap Hub Management
  • From there turn off any accounts you don't want to see in the Hub
  • Once done, tap Back twice to return to the Hub

From now on only those you kept on will show up in the Hub. If you wanted to view any messages on those accounts you don't want showing in the Hub, just swipe the screen to the left and you can choose those accounts from the list.

If in the future you change your mind and want those accounts to show up in the Hub again, repeat the steps above and turn the accounts on.

However, that is not the only way to filter the Hub. If, like me, you like everything showing up in the Hub but occasionally just wanted to view one account for a while, just swipe the screen to the right and select from the list the account you want to view.

To return back to full Hub viewing, swipe to the right again and tap Hub at the top of the list.
