Thankfully there is a way for you to remove these notifications. So if you are ready, follow these steps.

App notifications running in the background

1. First, install the “Tasker” app ($ 2.99) and the “Notification Listener” (free) app from Play Store. Now download Tasker Profile to enable this feature.

2. Open Tasker and tap “Taskes“Now click on Taskes again to bring up the menu Import. Click it to import the XML file you downloaded.

7. Press the back button and then select the “Snooze“that we have entered. Once you have done that, Tasker will stop any constant notifications from showing on your smartphone.

What actually happens here is that the Tasker Profile has the mode to snooze notifications “App is running in the background” for a very long time (several thousand years). This ensures that you will never see that message again.

I wish you successful implementation!
