When an app needs to be absolutely certain that it is not being cleared from RAM by Android’s memory management system, it will post a persistent, continuous notification. Another time you will run into non-removable alerts is when your phone or carrier really wants you to do something like apply an update.
When you long press one of these types of notifications, you will sometimes find that you cannot change its settings. So it’s just sitting in your notification tray, holding an icon in your status bar, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Well, not standard. Because a simple app can hide each notification permanently using a workaround with Android̵
Step 1 Install Hide Persistent Notifications
The app that makes this possible is called Hide Persistent Notifications and is available for $ 2.49 on the Google Play Store. For the price of a cup of coffee you can finally get rid of an annoying notification. Go ahead and install the app from the link below to get started.
Step 2: Grant permissions
When you first launch Hide Persistent Notifications, you will be prompted to grant the app notification access. Tap “Take Me There” in the popup, which will take you to a system settings menu. Turn on the toggle next to Hide permanent notifications, then tap “Allow” at the prompt.
Step 3: Hide all pending notifications
Now go back to the main menu of the app and tap on the big, round button in the lower right corner. You will see a list of all notifications currently displayed on your system. Tap the one you want to disable, make sure “Long Term” is selected and tap “Hide” in the popup.
The notification disappears immediately and stays gone forever. To re-enable it, open Hide permanent notifications, select the notification from the main menu, then choose “Unhide”.
