AMBER Alerts are sent by authorities in your country to notify you of missing persons in your region. If you want to disable these alerts for any reason, there is a way to do it on your Android phone.

AMBER alerts are quite useful as they keep you informed about things happening around you. If you keep them enabled, you won’t miss any important updates.

However, if you find that the alerts arrive at odd hours or are not relevant, you can choose to disable them. In this way, your phone will not notify you of any alerts. Later, you can turn the feature back on if you want.
