AMBER alerts are sent by your country’s authorities to notify you about missing persons in your region. If you’d like to disable these alerts for some reason, there’s a way to do that on your Android phone.

AMBER alerts are pretty useful as they keep you updated about the things happening around you. Keeping them enabled ensures you aren’t missing out on any important updates.

However, if you find the alerts arrive at odd hours or aren’t relevant, you can choose to disable them. This way, your phone won’t notify you of any alerts. Later, you can turn the feature back on if you want.
