How do I turn off direct messaging notifications on Substack?

When someone sends you a direct message on Substack, you'll receive a push notification from the Substack app or an email, depending on your notification settings.

By default, notifications for new messages and requests will be turned on.


You can change DM notifications in the Notifications section on the Substack iOS app (Messages section on Android) or your Substack account settings page.

On the web

In the Privacy section on your Substack account settings page, slide the toggles to the left next to "Messages" and "Message requests" to disable receiving push and email notifications for every new message and new message request.

On the Substack app

Click on your profile picture on the Substack iOS app and select Settings. Tap on Notifications and select Chat. Uncheck the boxes under Email and Push for "New messages" and "New requests" if you don't want to receive any DM notifications.
