My phone makes a lot of noise when it's not in use. I think this is because apps running in the background have experienced an event, like Clash of the Clans. How can I change this? I'd really like to find out what apps just made my phone beep. I'm running Cyanogenmod 12.1 with android 5.1.1 (though soon to upgrade to android 6).

  • i didnt get your question...do you want to turn off your notification for a particlar app or something like that..???

  • @Anko basically yes, i want to turn off notifications for a particular app, I just don't know which app keeps making the phone beep

    Maybe not the answer you want, but can you clear all notifications and check your phone every time it beeps? There should be a notification relevant to the beep. If you think that the app's notification is annoying, you can open the app and check the in-app settings for notification (generally, there's a notification setting in the app itself). Otherwise, follow Anko's answer if you don't care about their notifications.

Lets take an example that its your clash of clans app(as u mentioned it in the question)...go in settings -> app -> select that app -> there will be a checkbox which says 'show notification'. Uncheck it

  • Ok thanks. So unchecking this will prevent audio notifications as well as the notification being added to the lock screen?
