Even if you are already filtering unknown senders in Messages on iPhone, you still might see notifications every time you get a text from an unknown number. To stop that and silence the annoying notifications, you will need to make a change in Settings. Let’s explore how to do this.
This is for the iPhone. Screenshots are from iPhone XR
First, open Settings (the grey gear icon, usually on your Home Screen). Refer to the below image:
Next, on Settings, scroll down and tap Notifications. See the below image:
Now, in Notifications, tap Messages. See the following image:
Next, in Messages notification settings, scroll down to the very bottom and tap Customize Notifications. Refer to the below image:
Now, in Customize Notifications, flip the toggle beside Unknown Senders to the OFF position. See the below image:
Next, exit Settings. Now, we want to enable Filter Unknown Senders. Head to:
Settings > Messages > Filter Unknown Senders
and flip the toggle to ON. See the following image:
Now, you will no longer receive notifications when unknown senders text you.
