How to Disable Push Notifications in Flipboard

If you're using Flipboard on your mobile device you probably get a ton of notifications from the company about new stories and social interactions. That's because by default you're subscribed to all the notification for Flipboard including likes, reflips, and comments. You can change that to receive fewer push notifications (or none) on your mobile device in Flipboard settings.

  1. Open Flipboard and tap your profile icon on the bottom-right corner of the page and then tap the Settings gear icon in the top-right corner.

  2. On the Settings page, tap Push Notifications. You may have to scroll down a little to find it.

  3. On the Push Notifications page, the types of notifications you'll receive have a checked box to the right of the notification name. Deselect any of these notifications that you don't want to receive.

How to Change Flipboard Email Settings

Turn off All Flipboard App Notifications

If you're still receiving notifications from Flipboard and you can't figure out why, there's one more way you can turn off notifications, including the badges that pop up on your Flipboard icon (because badges drive everyone crazy!).

It's turning the notification for the app off completely. Depending on the device you're using, this can be accomplished in a couple of different ways.

For Android: Go to Settings > Apps & notifications and find the Flipboard app. Toggle off the notifications for Flipboard.

For iPhone: Go to Settings > Notifications and find the Flipboard app. Toggle off Allow Notifications .

For iPad: Got to Settings > Notifications and find the News app. Then toggle off Allow Notifications.

In newer generations of the iPad and iPad Pro, Flipboard is the default news aggregator, which is why it is listed under News in the Notifications category, rather than under Flipboard. You'll find Flipboard under the Home feed if you swipe right from the Home screen on your iPad. However, you can still install Flipboard on iPad, and when you do, it'll show up as Flipboard just like it does on iPhone and Android.
