This article provides a guide on switching “Push notifications” on or off in the Threads app—a messaging app developed by Facebook. Users can pause notifications for up to 8 hours to avoid distractions, with notifications resuming automatically afterward. However, for longer periods, the device’s personal notification management settings should be used. These notifications can be managed within the app settings on the mobile device.

This article explains how to turn all “Push notifications” on or off in the Threads app on mobile devices.

The Threads app is a messaging app developed by Facebook for users who want to keep in touch with their closest friends and share their status. It allows users to share photos, videos, messages, stories, and more.

The mobile version lets you turn off or pause all “Push notifications” for up to 8 hours. You can’t turn off notifications for an extended period. If you must turn off or pause all notifications in Threads completely, use the device’s notifications management settings.

Pausing or unpausing all push notifications in Threads can be useful in various situations. For instance, you may want to reduce distractions during an important meeting, while sleeping, or when you need to focus on a task.

By pausing all push notifications, you can prevent Threads from showing you new messages, updates, or alerts on your lock screen, notification center, or home screen. Once you unpause notifications, you’ll receive all missed notifications at once.

It’s worth noting that you can only pause notifications for up to 8 hours at a time and that this option is only available in the mobile version of the app. If you need to turn off or pause notifications for an extended period, use your device’s notification management settings instead.
