Does Android have a Critical Alerts feature?
Android does not have a Critical Alerts feature. However, users can modify their settings to bypass Do Not Disturb mode as shown below.
1. Browse to CrisisAlert app settings by long pressing the CrisisAlert app icon and choosing ‘App info’ or by using the Android Settings menu (Settings -> Apps & notifications -> CrisisAlert)
2. Tap ‘Notifications’ – the box next to ‘Critical Alerts’ should be checked
3. Tap ‘Critical Alerts’
Enable ‘Override Do Not Disturb’ in the ‘Advanced’ section.
Other settings that can help ensure you receive notifications from CrisisAlert are:
‘Behavior’ should be set to ‘Make sound and pop on screen’
‘Alerting’ should be selected (default)
These settings do not override your sound settings so if you have your device set to ‘Silent’ mode, although the notification will be delivered, you will not hear the sound.
