How To Stop Getting Story Notifications On Snapchat

Hey there! So, you’re tired of receiving those constant story notifications on Snapchat, huh? Trust me, I’ve been there too. It can get pretty annoying and overwhelming, especially if you follow a lot of active users. But don’t worry, I’ve got your back. In this article, I’ll walk you through the steps on how to stop getting story notifications on Snapchat. Let’s dive in!

Step 1: Open Snapchat Settings

To start, open the Snapchat app on your mobile device and log in to your account. Once you’re in, tap on your profile icon in the top-left corner of the screen. This will take you to your profile page.

From the profile page, tap on the gear icon in the top-right corner. This will open the Snapchat settings.

Step 2: Access Notifications Settings

Once you’re in the Snapchat settings, scroll down until you find the “Notifications” option. Tap on it to access the notifications settings.

Step 3: Customize Story Notifications

In the notifications settings, you’ll find various options to customize your notification preferences. Look for the “Stories” section and tap on it.

Here, you’ll see two options: “Show me in Quick Add” and “Show me in Search.” By default, both of these options are enabled. These options determine whether your story is visible to others and whether you appear in the Quick Add and Search sections of Snapchat.

If you want to stop getting story notifications from specific users, you can simply unfollow them by tapping on their username and selecting “Unfollow” from their profile page. This way, their stories won’t show up in your feed, and you won’t receive notifications for them.

Step 4: Turn off All Snapchat Notifications (Optional)

If you’re looking for a more drastic measure and want to disable all Snapchat notifications, you have that option too. In the notifications settings, scroll further down until you find the “Snapchat” section.

Here, you’ll see a toggle switch to enable or disable notifications for various activities, such as Messages, Mentions, and Friend Requests. You can turn off all the notifications here by disabling each toggle switch.

Keep in mind, though, that disabling all Snapchat notifications means you won’t receive any alerts or badges for any activities on the app. So, use this option carefully and only if you really want to disconnect from all Snapchat notifications.


And there you have it! By following these simple steps, you can easily stop getting story notifications on Snapchat. Whether you choose to unfollow specific users or disable all notifications, it’s up to you to customize your Snapchat experience to your liking. Now you can enjoy a more peaceful and focused time on the app without those constant interruptions.

Remember, social media should enhance your life, not overwhelm it. Take control of your notifications, and enjoy Snapchat on your own terms. Happy snapping!
