You may have noticed that you have started receiving notifications from the Memos app for your iPhone. Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to turn off the notifications. Here are a few ways to do it.
Hide people & pets from Google Photos
If you want to hide people or pets from your Google Photos on iPhone, there are a couple of options available. One option is the “Hide people and pets” tool, which is located on the “Memories” section of the app.
Another option is the “Hide dates” tool, which is found on the same “Memories” page. Using this feature, you can set a time period when you would like to block certain photos and images from appearing in your Memories.
Whether you choose to hide a person or a pet, or both, it is important to know that you can unhide them from your photos anytime. To do so, you will first need to tap the profile photo in the top-right corner of the screen.
The “Memories” menu will then display a grid of faces and animals. You can then select to add a name to a person or pet, to label an image, or to hide it.
Hiding a person or a pet will also help you to prevent the subject from appearing in other creations, such as a story. This feature is not as easy to use as hiding a date or time, however.
Remove this person> from Memories
If you want to stop seeing certain people in Memories, iOS 15 offers you more control. The Photos app has a feature called “Feature This Person Less” that allows you to select fewer photos of a person and reduce the frequency in which they appear in Memories.
You can find this option in the Settings menu of the Photos app. In addition to preventing certain people from appearing in Memories, you can also turn off notifications.
You can use the “Feature This Person Less” option to avoid seeing photos of an ex-boyfriend, girlfriend, or spouse. However, you will need to confirm that you wish to do so. It isn’t a long process, and will allow you to keep using the Photos app without featuring your ex.
There are three options in the Photos app. These include the “Feature This Person Less,” “Suggest Fewer Memories Like This,” and “Reset Suggested Memories.” All of these are self-explanatory.
To enable Feature This Person Less, click on the People icon in the “People and Places” section of the Photos app. Next, long press the memory you’d like to modify. After doing this, a contextual menu should appear.
Reset suggested Memories
If you don’t like the way Memories display your photos or videos, you can reset suggested memories on iPhone and iPad. Reset Suggested Memories is a tool in the Settings app that allows you to choose the date, time, or event you’d like to disable. To do this, open the Settings app and select Photos.
Then, scroll down to the bottom of the page. From there, you’ll see a button that reads “Suggest Fewer Memories Like This.” Tap it and you’ll see the contextual menu.
There are several different ways you can do this. Some of them are a bit easier than others.
If you want to reset the suggestion, you can long-press the memory. You’ll get a menu that says “Suggest Fewer Memories Like this”. That means that the Memories feature will no longer display random photos or videos.
However, if you just want to delete the suggestion, the Photos app also lets you do that. Select the three dots icon at the top right of the memory and you’ll get a contextual menu that lets you remove specific Memories.
Disable notifications for Memories
If you find yourself receiving notifications for Memories on iPhone, you can easily disable the feature. You can also customize the settings of Memories to make the alerts less intrusive.
To turn off notifications for Memories on iPhone, go to Settings, then click on Photos. From here, go to the For You tab. Tap the “Suggest Fewer Memories Like This” button. This will allow you to get reminders from Memories without seeing too many photos. The app will then give you a pop-up menu to choose whether or not you’d like to remove those memories.
You can also remove certain people from Memories. You can either do this manually by removing their names from Memories, or you can do it automatically by removing them from People. Once they’re removed, they won’t appear in Memories again. But you can add them back if you want to.
Alternatively, you can remove all Memories on iPhone. Doing this will not prevent future alerts for Memories. However, you won’t be able to see any auto-generated Memories anymore.
