Too much Amazon app notifications

Are you annoyed with Amazon bombarding you with the same notifications for order confirmation and delivery updates through email, app alerts, Alexa, and your registered phone number? Most of the notifications sent by Amazon except those related to upcoming orders are usually not of much use. Here is how to disable unwanted email, Alexa, and app notifications from Amazon.

Disable Amazon App Notifications

Amazon notifications are important as they inform us about our upcoming deliveries. But, it also sends several marketing and promotional notifications. And sometimes, it sends the same notifications on phone as well as Alexa. Although we can completely disable them from the settings, we can also tweak it to receive only the relevant notifications. Let’s see how.

1. From Amazon In-App Settings

Open the Amazon app, tap the hamburger icon (Three Horizontal lines) on the bottom right, and select Settings.
