2 Turn Off Badge Notifications
More often than not, those small, numbered red dots at the top-right corner of your app icons pester you to do something unnecessary or inform you of something you didn’t really need to know (e.g. that some bot has requested to follow you on Instagram). If you want to reduce some, but not all of the notifications coming out of an app, you have the option of turning off those red badge icons.
- Go to Settings.
- Select an App.
- Toggle ‘Badge App Icon’ to Off.
