How To Use Blocking Mode (Do Not Disturb Mode) On Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus
This is good news for Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus users who do not want to be disturbed, who are always on the go, and who are mostly busy. Your phone now has a feature called the Do Not Disturb Mode. This mode can be used according to your requirements.
The Do Not Disturb Mode has long been on the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. However, Samsung renamed it to the Blocking Mode since Apple started using the same service.
As its name suggests, the Blocking Mode doesn’t allow calls and messages to go through. Busy people wouldn’t want their Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus ringing all the time. For those busy users, here’s a short guide on how to use this feature.
Though it blocks off calls when you’re busy, it makes sure that you don’t miss out anything important once it is activated. There are many options available for Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus users so that they can customize their needs for the Blocking Mode.
How to Turn ON Galaxy S9 Blocking Mode
- Make sure your Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is turned on
- Activate your Settings by either pulling the Navigation shade down or by looking for it in your Applications
- Scroll down until you find an option named “Blocking Mode”
- In the top right corner, you will find the Block Mode switch. You can control it fully here. Switch it on or switch it off according to your needs
How to Set up Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus Blocking Mode
Once you turn the Blocking Mode on, you will have to set it up. There are vast options that you can tinker with. Right under the features section of the Blocking Mode menu, you will find the different selections you can choose from. This is including different kinds of alerts for your notifications.
If you use the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and you don’t want your phone to be completely alarm-dead, then do not select the option that will disable all Alarms.
This option will also allow you to choose the period of time the Blocking Mode would be turned on on your Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. You can set for it to automatically start or to automatically stop within the given time frame. For example, if you have a fixed schedule for work and you don’t want to be disturbed, you can set this feature so that you won’t have to do it every day.
The last feature allows you to take calls and notifications for your VIPs. You wouldn’t want your wife making accusations, right? You can create a custom list and add all of the contacts that are important to you.
If a contact calls you repeatedly – that is, two times in a row – you will still get notifications. If you don’t want to get them, you just have to go to the three dot option found on the top right corner and then add that contact to the rejected list.
