Turn on notifications

You can set up the
DTEK by BlackBerry
app to notify you when an app accesses features or important personal info on your device. You can receive notifications for foreground (when you're using the app), in the background (when the app is open but running in the background), or both.
  1. On the main screen, tap >
    Notifications
    .
  2. Tap the
    Default notifications
    drop-down list.
  3. Do any of the following:
    • To receive notifications when any app you're using accesses your information, tap
      Foreground
      .
    • To receive notifications when any app that's running in the background accesses your information, tap
      Background
      .
    • To receive notifications when any app accesses your information at any time, tap
      Both
      .

      Off

Turn on notifications for a specific app

If you don't want to receive notifications for every app that accesses your information, you can choose to receive notifications only from specific apps when they access your information.
