There are notifications that I simply don’t want. They are not of use to me and yet, there is no way to prevent them without disabling notifications entirely.
Your money is waiting for you…
You’re X weeks through the month, let’s see how you’re doing…
I’m sure these are useful if you’re on a fixed salary and budgeting accordingly, but I’m not. My income and expenses change every month and I don’t enjoy being able to spend money as soon as it arrives.
I find these notifications frustrating and have done for years. I’ve raised it several times over the years, but it’s never gone anywhere. I’d be over the moon if I could switch these unnecessary and pointless reminders.
And then I lose notifications for payments into and out of the account.
I’m not sure limiting notifications to ONLY account activity is actually an odd request? Every app these days seems programmed to scream for your attention, it’s kind of disappointing that Monzo is no different - it should be serving my needs, not demanding my attention like a toddler.
Maybe I’m in the minority though and most people are happy for their phone to ping or flash at them all day long.
