How do I use and control notifications?

Updated: 14 July 2020

You can access your notifications wherever you are on the BBC website, by clicking the bell at the top of the page.

How many notifications will I get?

That depends on how many things you’ve added or subscribed to. The more you add, the more notifications you’ll get.

How long will my notifications stick around?

They’ll stay in your notifications panel for seven days after they appear.

If your notifications panel is empty, that means there’s nothing new for you. Or you’ve turned them off from settings.

How do I control my notifications?

First open your notifications panel by clicking the bell at the top of the page. Then click the ���Settings” icon and you’ll be able to turn your notifications on or off.

Can I stop notifications for a specific show?

Yes – you can go to My Sounds in Sounds or My Programmes in iPlayer, and remove shows there.

If I turn notifications off, will it affect the things I’ve added?

No, anything you’ve added will still be there.
