The Reddit mobile app sends notifications of popular messages (Trending). If you are not interested, you can disable it. See how to turn off trend notifications on Reddit for mobile.
For some time, the mobile app for the Reddit service has been sending not only notifications about replies to our comments or messages, but also about new messages that are becoming popular. These types of messages are marked as trends, and the application sends messages that encourage them to be checked. These notifications appear on the notification bar and on the phone’s main screen, as well as in the Reddit app itself.
This happens both in the Reddit mobile app for Android and in iOS. So far, we have received notifications only when someone replied to our comment or our post, and also mentioned us in his speech. Now we are also informed of the most popular posts monitored by subreddit.
Moreover, it is displayed in the same way as other notifications. Let's see how to disable it so that you do not receive notifications about Trending messages.
Disable trend message notifications in Reddit
Fortunately, the Reddit mobile app allows you to enable or disable selected notifications, so we can easily turn off messages about popular messages. How to do it? All you have to do is enter the appropriate settings for the Reddit mobile app.
Launch the official Reddit app, and then slide out the side menu by sliding your finger from the left edge of the screen. In the lower left corner, go to the settings section, i.e. "Setup".
After entering the settings screen, select the tab "Notification" in section "General". At this stage, we can control the receipt of various types of notifications.
Search for messages in the list of available notifications Trend Positions. By default, this option is selected, which means that we receive notifications about popular messages. Just clear this check box and you will no longer receive notifications for Trending messages.
