Say Goodbye to Annoying Weather Alerts on Android and iPhone

Weather alerts on your Android or iPhone can be helpful, but they can also be distracting and clutter your notification panel. If you find these alerts more bothersome than useful, there's a simple solution. In this article, we'll show you how to disable weather alerts on both Android and iPhone devices.

How to Disable Weather Alerts on Android

The steps to turn off weather notifications may vary depending on the Android skin your phone is running. If you have stock Android, disabling weather alerts from the Google app should suffice. However, if your phone has a custom Android skin, like One UI, you'll also need to disable notifications for the weather app provided by the phone's manufacturer.

How to Disable Google Weather Alerts on Android

  1. Long press on the Google app icon and tap the info icon from the resulting menu.
  2. Tap on Notifications and select Notification categories from the menu.
  3. Disable the toggle next to Current weather conditions and Weather alerts for changes and forecasts.

If you still receive weather alerts, check your Google Assistant routines to ensure they aren't set up to send weather alerts. Here's how:

  1. Open the Google app on your phone.
  2. Tap on your profile icon in the top right corner and select Settings.
  3. Tap on Google Assistant and select Routines.
  4. Review each routine and make sure none of them are set to send weather alerts. If they are, select the routine and tap the Remove action option at the bottom.

How to Disable Weather Alerts on Samsung Galaxy Phones

If you have a Samsung Galaxy phone, you'll also need to disable weather alerts from the Samsung Weather app. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app on your phone and navigate to Apps.
  2. Tap the search icon at the top and locate the Weather app. Then, tap on it.
  3. Tap on Notifications and disable the toggle next to Allow notifications.

Once you complete these steps, the Samsung Weather app will not send any weather-related notifications to your Galaxy phone. You can also disable notifications for any third-party weather app installed on your phone.

How to Disable Weather Alerts on iPhone

By default, the Weather app on your iPhone sends alerts for rain or severe weather events in your current location. If you want to stop receiving these alerts, here's what you need to do:

  1. Open the Weather app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap the menu icon (three stacked lines) in the bottom right corner.
  3. Tap the kebab menu (three dots) in the top right corner and select Notifications from the menu.
  4. Under Current Location, disable the toggles next to Severe Weather and Next-Hour Precipitation. Then, tap Done in the top right corner.
