When I'm out in public or around other people I can hear alerts for emergency broadcasts on their phone, but I can't hear it on mine. My phone has a VPN installed and may affect the alert. I'm the US and the VPN usually connects to it. I haven't receive any alerts for quite some time, not even the presidential test alert. How does the VPN affect the alert notification and if the server is in the same country but in a different region should I receive alerts from that area even though I'm nowhere near that area?

  • You might want to add the make/model/OS version of phone along with carrier and region where you experienced not receiving the alert. – Morrison Chang Aug 1 '19 at 23:08
