How not to receive calls and notifications at night

Many people recommend turning off the mobile phone completely at night, but restarting it daily is not a healthy practice for the device's battery. That doesn't mean, however, that you shouldn't find some equally valid solutions. Fortunately, software producers have implemented the so-called Do not disturb modewhich will disable all notifications and alerts (except the alarm clock) during the set hours. In this guide we will show you how to use it in the best way.

Set the night mode on your mobile phone

As you surely know, night mode management varies depending on the operating system used, Android or iOS, and even depending on the interface used by the different manufacturers. For this reason we are going to divide the procedure into two parts..

Activate night mode on Android mobile phones

As for Android mobile phones, we will illustrate the procedure in the interface MIUI (Xiaomi), which will continue to help with most of the software used by other companies. In general, the options that we are going to see can be activated or deactivated directly from the application «Settings»under section "Sounds" o "Notifications". Now we are going to see how to activate the programmed night mode in Xiaomi.

  • Open the application «Settings»
  • Continue with "Sound and vibration"
  • Choose "Be quiet" o "Do not bother" (ND)
  • Click on "Schedule the start time". and then «Add rules»
  • Choose a name to assign to the mode
  • Click on "Weekday" to select the days on which the mode will be activated
  • Click on "From" e "AT" to set the on / off time of the mode
  • Make sure the "Silent mode" fits "ND"

At this time, all notifications and alerts will stop at previously established times.

This night mode can be bypassed in emergencies, which is when certain people, marked as «Favorites» make a call. The messages will continue in silent mode.

  • Open the application "Google Contacts"
  • Click on «Favorites» down left
  • Continue with "Add" up to the right
  • Select all contacts to include in the list
