Can Opal block notifications? (iOS)

Why is that?

Our Local VPN technology can only block anything coming from the app's server. Some notifications from Apps like Facebook or Snapchat come directly from Apple's server, which we don't block (otherwise it would mess things up on your phone).

What to do:

Remove notifications

As a general rule, notifications in many social, video, or productivity apps are distracting. Ask yourself: do I need notifications on this app?

Here's how you can remove notifications.

Do Not Disturb:

Alternatively, if you don't feel like removing notifications completely, you can use do not disturb in combination with an Opal session. They work together!

Here's how you can turn do not disturb on.
