Like other Android phones, the LG G6 includes several emergency alert tools to ensure you’re in the know if some type of situation strikes. They’re designed to alert you if there is some type of natural disaster, terrorist attack or another risk to public health.
On the LG G6, you’ll find the ability to turn on or off three levels of alert: extreme, severe, or Amber alerts. You can also choose to leave the alerts on, but still turn off the sound and vibration that accompanies them. Here’s what to do.
1. Go to the Emergency Alert app. On the main page, you’ll see any alerts you’ve recently recived.
2. Touch the overflow menu (the three vertical dots) and select Settings. You’ll see a list of all the alerts you can receive, which are turned on by default.
3. To turn off an alert, touch the toggle next to the one you want to disable. (You can turn off extreme, sever and Amber alerts.) Select OK to opt out of the alert. Touch the toggle again if you want to re-enable any alert.
4. You can also enable or disable sounds and vibration. To turn off either sound, toggle the appropriate setting.
FCC rules do not allow you to unsubscribe from presidential alerts, so you won’t see a toggle for this option.
