    As both options in "Features" are turned on, we can turn one off by tapping the checkbox
    .
    For example, let's turn off our notifications. Now, with "Blocking mode" turned on, all of the notifications will be turned off. That means that nothing will interrupt us from making a video, for example. Turning off notifications can be handy when studying, making notes, watching a movie, or performing any other activity.
