I was working on my computer when all of a sudden my SE started sounding
a loud beep-beep-beep. I think it was an Amber alert. How can that
function be shut off? I just about jumped right out of my chair.


Please help.


Many thanks,

Nancy

According to Apple, it can be turned off in Settings>Notifications right
at the bottom, but I don't see it on my device.

I turned mine off ages ago, yes, it indeed can be turned off. It's in
settings some place.
I will try to look for it.

Found it.
Go to settings, go to notifications.
Then flick right until you see government alerts.
The first one past that is amber alerts.

Hello, on my iPhone success it can be turned off. If you go to settings, notifications, all the way down at the very bottom, there is a Government alerts heading, this has emergency alerts, and Amber alerts

I agree! if they can't be bothered giving a real answer, then they shouldn't
bother.

But, thank you, to everybody, who wrote back to the list, with a genuine
reply.

Hi,
I believe you can turn off the amber alerts at the bottom of the
notifications settings area under settings but you can't disable government
or presidential alerts if you're in the US which I'm assuming you are.
So for instance if there was a major weather warning or some other
governmental issued safety alert you'd get it regardless.

I hope this helps.
Robin

Hi,
I believe you can turn off the amber alerts at the bottom of the
notifications settings area under settings but you can't disable government
or presidential alerts if you're in the US which I'm assuming you are.
So for instance if there was a major weather warning or some other
governmental issued safety alert you'd get it regardless.

I hope this helps.
Robin

I was working on my computer when all of a sudden my SE started sounding
a loud beep-beep-beep. I think it was an Amber alert. How can that
function be shut off? I just about jumped right out of my chair.


Please help.


Many thanks,

sorry, just woken up. I always use google. but thought i would just ask, as
i have only just turned on my PC.

Quite early here in the UK, and we all don't get up at the crack of dawn!

But obviously i know, what amber alert means, just not regarding the iPhone.

According to Apple, it can be turned off in Settings>Notifications right
at the bottom, but I don't see it on my device.

It cannot.

I was working on my computer when all of a sudden my SE started sounding
a loud beep-beep-beep. I think it was an Amber alert. How can that
function be shut off? I just about jumped right out of my chair.
Please help.
Many thanks,
Nancy

Hi, Yes, thanks so much for answering, however, I've only seen the answer, after sending off my message. Apologies for that.

I assume you read the simple answer that was posted. It is an alert
concerning missing children here in the US.

I was wondering, too, but I suppose we'll just have to google it.

Yes. So am I.
Good question begs sensible answer.
Any offers?... we don't all live over there.

Hello,
And rather than giving a google link, actually answer it? Same amount of time.

One also wonders why someone takes the time to send such a pointless
message to the list instead of using the delete key.

Tacky answer. How hard is it to give a simple answer?
