Tip of the Week: Retrieving Dismissed Android Notifications

Tip of the Week: Retrieving Dismissed Android Notifications

We’ve all accidentally swiped away an important notification on our mobile devices, but not all of us know that Android devices give us the opportunity to go back and check them. For this week’s tip, we’re going to go over the process of how you can retrieve these notifications.

As is the case with most things, you’ll need to take some proactive measures.

Activating Your Notification History in Android

Android devices offer a functionality called Notification History, buried in their settings, where you can see a list of the notifications you’ve received. Of course, this isn’t activated by default, so you’ll need to go through a simple process:

  • Access your Settings either by swiping down on your home screen to get to the integrated shortcut, or by navigating through your applications to find them.
  • Once there, access your Notification settings, and from there, Advanced settings.
  • You’ll then see Notification history. Tap it to access it.
  • Once you do, you’ll be presented with a deactivated switch. Turn the switch to On, and you’ll have a list of the notifications you recently dismissed!

Can I Do This With an Apple Device?

Unfortunately, once an Apple notification has been acknowledged—either by being opened, cleared, or deleted outright—it is gone for good.
