BeReal Notification Won’t Go Away? Try This

BeReal Notification Won't Go Away

Speaking of annoying notifications, some users of the BeReal application have complained about notifications that are stuck on their phones

This will cause anyone to go into a panic, especially if they don’t know what’s causing the issue. But, you have no need to go wild if you are experiencing this.

Why Won’t BeReal Notification Won’t Go Away?

1. Poor Internet Connection

If you encounter an annoying issue, such as notifications not disappearing when using BeReal, it is highly recommended to check your internet connection. If you are using a Wi-Fi connection, attempt to reset your modem to see if that bypasses the issue.

Before you attempt to reset the modem, log out of your BeReal account first. Once you are logged out, then proceed with resetting your modem. The reset process may take a couple of minutes. So, you may encounter a short waiting period for this process to complete.

After the modem is reset and you are connected to your device, log back into your BeReal account to see if the notifications have disappeared. Moreover, let’s dive into a couple of other internet troubleshooting methods to resolve this problem. 

Fix – Turn Your WI-FI Off Then On

For Android users, to disconnect from your Wi-Fi signal, you must:

1. On your home screen, take your finger, scroll from the top, and pull down until you see a button bar at the top.

2. You will see buttons for your internet connection, data connection, Bluetooth connection, flashlight, rotation, etc.

If you are connected to Wi-Fi, the button for the Wi-Fi connection would be highlighted in a particular color showing that you are connected.

The Wi-Fi connection would be named or titled.

3. Tap on the Wi-Fi connection, and the button will no longer be highlighted. Once the highlight disappears, that is a sign that you are not connected to Wi-Fi.

4. Leave the connection off for about 3 to 5 minutes.

5. After 3 to 5 minutes have passed, tap the Wi-Fi button again so the button will highlight again, showing that you are now connected to the Wi-Fi signal.

If you are using an iOS device, to turn off your Wi-Fi connection, you must:

1. From your home screen, go to settings and then tap Wi-Fi.

2. If your Wi-Fi is turned on, tap it to disconnect the signal.

3. The Wi-Fi network would be named in your Wi-Fi settings.

4. Follow the same protocol for waiting 3 to 5 minutes before reconnecting the Wi-Fi signal and then reconnecting the signal once more.

Finally, log back in using your BeReal credentials if you are logged out of your BeReal account. Once logged in, you can see if the notifications have disappeared on your screen.

Fix 2 – Switch from WI-FI to Data

If you have turned off your Wi-Fi and switched it back on and there is no luck when doing so, the next option would be to switch from your Wi-Fi signal to your data. This allows you to consolidate the issue to see if the problem is your Wi-Fi and not the app itself. 

On an Android device, to switch to your data connection, you must:

1. First, log out of your account.

2. On your home screen, take your finger and swipe from the top of your screen, and pull down until you see buttons for your Wi-Fi, data, flashlight, etc.

3. If your Wi-Fi connection is highlighted, tap the Wi-Fi button so the highlight will disappear, and then tap your data button to switch on your data option.

For individuals using an iOS device, to switch on your data, you must:

1. From your home screen, navigate to your settings, then Wi-Fi. If your connection is available, tap the Wi-Fi switch to turn it off.

2. To turn on your data from your settings, if you are already in settings, go to cellular, then turn your cellular data on from that screen.

3. Once connected to your data service, go back to your BeReal app, open it, and log back in. Once logged back in, pay close attention to your home screen to see if the notifications previously stuck on your screen have disappeared.

Fix 3 – Turn Off VPN

Depending on your phone’s manufacturer and model, you may see a toggle switch for your VPN connection, in which case just toggle off the VPN, or if you are prompted with a disconnect button, disconnect the VPN using that button.

To disconnect the VPN for iOS users, you must:

1. First, log out of your BeReal account.

2. Tap the VPN slider near the top of the settings app to disconnect from the VPN. Another way to disconnect from the VPN and the settings you will go under settings, then tap General, and select VPN. To disconnect the VPN, tap the status option at the top of the page and then set it to the off position.

3. Once you have disconnected from your VPN on your Android or iOS device, this should allow your Wi-Fi and cellular data to have a smoother functionality. In other words, disconnecting the VPN allows less interference when using your BeReal application.

4. After disconnecting the VPN, log back into your BeReal account using your credentials to see if the notifications on your screen have gone away. 

For any internet connection issues, if you are unaware of what to do, it’s beneficial to contact an internet technician or someone that knows their way around a computer system to assist the issue.

A tech-savvy personal contact on speed dial will be handy if you have a blind moment following these alternatives.

3. There’s A Bug
