You may feel that you have to look at your notifications as soon as they arrive.

You may get so many of them that you feel that your notification bar is going to explode. The good news is that you can keep a clean notification bar and not have to panic because you forgot to deal with a particular notification.

The downside is that Android doesn’t offer any type of solution for this.

If you leave the notifications there, they will pile up, and if you swipe them away, there’s a good chance you’ll forget about them. I’ve lost count of how many times that’s happened to me.

In order to prevent that from happening to you follow this guide to save and dismiss notifications on Android and set reminders to view them later.

How To Keep Android Notifications From Disappearing Forever

There are two apps using which you can save your notifications and keep your notification bar clean without worrying about missing any or when the notifications might not be working.

How To Get Reminded For Notifications

The above apps will only help you in saving notifications, but if you wish to get a reminder for the notifications that you missed then you can check these two methods mentioned below. One is done from inside the Android settings itself, but it might not be on all the Android phones or versions. The one which we are showing is from a Samsung device with Android 9.0 Pie. While another can be done with the help of a third party application from any Android device.

Method 1 – From Android Settings

  • Open the Settings on Your Android devices, scroll down and select Accessibility.
  • Now in previous versions of Android, you might find the Notification Reminder settings right inside Accessibility. But in the Android 8 and 9, you will see Advanced Settings, select it. And then inside it select Notification reminders.get reminders for missed notifications
