If you are not receiving notifications on your Galaxy S10 from any apps, then you should be checking the instructions we posted below. There are countless reasons why your notifications might not be triggered by installed apps, and you should be able to fix them using our info.
The most obvious advice we have for you is to verify that you haven't enabled the "Do not Disturb" mode on your Galaxy S10 by mistake. Also, make sure that the Power Saving mode, if enabled, isn't blocking notifications from apps.
Check for unwanted or suspect applications you recently installed:
If you know that you have installed any apps from unknown sources then it would be best to take another look at their settings and see if they aren't interacting with your phone's notifications. Another thing you need to do is to boot Safe Mode and test the notifications from there, too. Here's how to boot Safe Mode on Galaxy S10:
- press and hold Power button until the power options are shown.
- now tap and hold the Power Off option.
- the Power Off icon will change to Safe Mode.
- tap Safe Mode and wait for the Galaxy S10 to complete the boot.
Now, in Safe Mode try and see if the notifications are working. If the notifications are coming through in safe mode, then you should start removing some apps that might interfere with your phone's notifications.
Check Battery Optimization Settings:
The new Android firmware has a function called Battery Optimization, and some of its functions are going to stop apps from sending notifications in case they are configured wrong.
Go to Settings> Apps> tap the 3-dot icon and select "special access" option. Now tap on the "optimize battery usage"and use this menu to prevent the phone from optimizing any of the apps that you aren't getting notifications from.
