Hide Pesky Permanent Notifications

Some alerts refuse to leave. Whether it's a persistent VPN notification or annoying antivirus alert, even dismissing or clearing these notices fails to banish them.

Luckily, you can make permanent notifications vanish completely without root using the TidyPanel app:

  1. Install TidyPanel app from the Play Store.
  2. Grant notification access when prompted.
  3. Select the stubborn persistent notification.
  4. Choose to hide by Title or Body text strings.
  5. Notification disappears and moves to Hidden.

TidyPanel leverages notification snoozing functions to reliably hide persistent annoyances.

While your mileage may vary, the affordable app works better than most notification managers. Ditch frustrating distractions for good!

Regain Sanity Without Rooting Your Phone

Notification spam and relentless permanent pop-ups can quickly make you want to throw your phone against a wall.

But resorting to rooting or custom ROMs just for notification control is overkill.

With Android's robust settings for disabling app alerts along with intelligent helpers like TidyPanel, you can eliminate distractions and hide persistent pestering without risky system modification.
