How To Turn Off Emergency & AMBER Alerts On Your iOS Device

Step #1: Click On The Settings Icon From Your Home Screen


Step #2: Click On The ‘Notifications' Tab


Step #3: Scroll To The Bottom & Locate ‘Government Alerts'



Step #4: Flip These Toggles From ‘ON' To ‘OFF'


You have now disabled AMBER & emergency alerts on your iOS device. If you wish to re-enable them in the future, follow the same procedure except step 4 will involve switching the toggles from ‘OFF' back to ‘ON'.

  • I can’t find “government alerts” anywhere on my iphone 7+ running ios 12.3.1 and I want to enable emergency alerts. How do I find it since the above steps do not lead to this setting for my device?
