Disable Emergency (AMBER) Alerts

Your phone is blasting an alarming sound at 2 AM. Not again. Yeah, you're not getting anymore sleep tonight. The sleep thief is none other than FEMA sending an emergency weather alert to your Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Sometimes emergency alerts are useful, like Amber Alerts. On other occasions, not so much. Luckily, there are a few ways to turn off these notifications.

1. Open the Messages App.

2. Tap the menu button and hit settings.

3. Select Emergency Alerts.

4. Select Emergency Alerts again.

5. Uncheck the alerts that you do not want to receive. The Presidential Alert is not optional, and cannot be disabled.
