To activate ‘do not disturb’ mode on iOS:
The iOS operating system already has the ‘do not disturb’ tool within the phone’s settings.
You just have to display the notification menu of your mobile device, which appears when you slide your finger from the bottom of the screen upwards. There, press the moon icon and you will see a list of apps where you must choose WhatsApp and the option ‘Mute’, which will block WhatsApp notifications for as long as you want.
To activate the ‘do not disturb’ feature on Android:
On some Android devices it can also be done from the notifications menu, which appears when you slide your finger from top to bottom of the screen. Then, you just have to click on the symbol of the circle that has a horizontal line.
However, for some Android devices it is necessary to first download the Block Apps application, available in the Google Play Store . With it you can schedule WhatsApp blocking at a certain time (minutes, hours, days or indefinitely) so that you can concentrate on your tasks without interruptions.
