As you continue to set up your BlackBerry KEYone how you like it and start downloading apps, you may start to feel overwhelmed by the deluge of notifications thrown at you throughout the day. Fortunately, you're able to customize how each individual app delivers notifications to you.

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to pull down the notification shade.
  2. Tap the Settings icon in the top right corner.
  3. Tap Notifications.

  4. You'll be presented with every app installed on your phone, including system apps built into Android. Scroll down through the list until you find the app that's giving you notification grief.

  5. Tap the app (in this example, Facebook).
  6. From this menu, you are able to tweak all the notification settings for that specific app.
    • To block all notifications, tap the switch next to Block all. You won't be bothered by notifications from this app unless you go back in and turn them back on.
    • If you still want to receive the notifications in the notification shade, but don't want to be distracted by them, tap the switch next to Show silently. Your notifications will still collect in the notification shade without making a sound or vibration, and without peeking into view while you're looking at something else on your phone.
    • Tap On the lock screen to set the content displayed on lock screen notifications. By default, all notification content is shown, but you have the option to hide sensitive notification content or turn off lock screen notifications altogether.
    • If you haven't silenced notifications, you also have the option to prioritize an app's notifications to override Do Not Disturb mode.

If you have the time, you can go through every app on your phone so that only the most important notifications get your immediate attention throughout the day.
