How to Disable Reddit Notifications

social notifications

Reddit is an excellent platform for finding out about any topic imaginable. You can research subjects, join groups, and post your thoughts in discussions. However, if you follow several topics and are a member of many communities, you may want to disable Reddit notifications.

With fewer notifications, you have room for the things that matter. Sure, you can be in a discussion thread about your favorite TV show, but do you need notifications each time a user comments on the post?

In addition, it’s a bit annoying because as you use your phone for Reddit posts, a message often appears wanting you to enable notifications. You’ll probably accidentally turn on notifications when that message appears.

The good news is that you can turn off notifications from your phone or the web version on your computer.
