Notification settings: the various types and how to change them

There are several ways to adjust your notifications. Take a look at the options below for how to turn Push notifications and Email notifications on or off.

There are three types of notifications on Wattpad:

  • Email notifications
    • Comments, Private Messages, Story Updates, Mentions, New Followers
  • Push notifications (Alerts that appear outside the App)
    • Comments, Announcements, Private Messages, Story Updates, Mentions, New Followers
  • Events on your Notifications Feed (in-app)
    • Comments, Announcements, Private Messages, Story Updates, Mentions, New Followers

Email notifications can only be modified on the web.

Events on the Notifications Feed cannot be changed, dismissed or deleted. However, this is something we are working on improving in the future! 

If you are receiving delayed notifications or are not receiving any notifications, please have a look at our troubleshooting guide: Receiving Delayed or no Notifications
