This has started happening recently. It seems like I am getting at least one notification every day or two now on my Android phone from Google saying:

**Verify your phone number**
Google can warn you of suspicious activity in your 
account & you can more easily connect with friends
in Google services.

I don't want to see this notification any more (it plays a loud sound every time, and the other morning it actually woke me up!) and I also am not going to verify my phone number. How can I make these notifications stop?

  • "go into your App Settings, locate "Google Play Services" app and you should (hopefully) see an option to "Show Notifications" - I unchecked this and the issue immediately went away" per LP627 post

The app is Google Play Services. Disable notifications in Settings > Apps

    What is the risk of masking other, important, notifications? Are there any others?
