How To Turn-Off Facebook Red Notification Dots

Welcome Reader. We know that we have seen enough of all those annoying red dots appearing in Groups, Watch or other Tabs on Facebook. Too much of it can actually make you angry.



The social media has granted users the ability to turn off the crimson in-app notification dots that seem to pop up every time you check Facebook on your phone. This will make Facebook more user friendly without any form of disturbance whenever you open the app.



The bright red dots (officially known as badges) appear on the mobile app’s home screen, perhaps to alert you of a new video or new activity in one of your groups. Occasionally the alerts are redundant; popping up for a video you might’ve already seen.

According to Facebook,

“It’s related to the work we’re doing with the well-being team. We’re thinking about how people spend their time in the app and making sure that it’s time well spent” a Facebook spokesperson confirms.

The feature has started testing on a subset of iOS and Android users. To find out if you are part of the test;

How to Turn Off Facebook Notification Dot

Go to the “Settings and Privacy” section of your Facebook mobile app. Tap on “Settings” and then scroll down to “Notifications”. You should see a heading that says “Notification Dots” at the very bottom, and that will lead you to a toggle menu where you can choose which type of badges you no longer want to see.

Unfortunately, not everybody at the moment will be able to test this feature. You might be lucky to be part of the early test users.

We would like to hear from you...
