How To Manage Google+ Notifications on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

Google+ has been notorious for sending out notifications for every little thing. Someone +1’s your comment. Someone shared your photo. Someone added you to their circles. The list goes on and on. But what if you don’t actually want all these notifications? What if you just want to be notified for the important things?  It’s actually not that hard to manage Google+ notifications on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Here’s how it’s done. 

Step One: Google+ Settings

Open up the Google+ app. Swipe from the left side of your screen to the right, or click the button in the top left bars to bring up your navigation menu.

  1. Here’s a question, I don’t see the part you have that says “Notifications”, I’m missing it entirely. I have notifications turned on for this app in iOS, I’m running iOS 7.1, the most recent G+ app on an iPhone 5S. Any suggestions?


  2. Actually I just answered my own question, however it makes no sense. I have a regular page and a business page. If I’m signed in as the business page, I don’t see the Notifications options, only if I’m signed in as my regular page.

    • Hi Niiki,

      When signed into your regular account, it should give you options for managing the notifications you receive from pages you own or moderate as well. The page is considered as a subdivision of your regular account – certain options may affect the notifications you receive from both you and your page.
