How is it possible that the Facebook Messenger app can wake up the phone and display the (super annoying) fullscreen call popups even if the phone is locked? Moreover these fricking popups show up even if the phone is set to Do Not Disturb (and locked). I'm looking for a way how to get rid of these (other than uninstalling Messenger). The OS is Android 8.1.

Things I have tried:

  • disable Messenger's permission to display over other apps and picture-in-picture
  • set both "Block visual disturbances" options in the Do Not Distrub preferences to enabled
  • check that all Messenger notifications options are set NOT to override Do Not Disturb
