    To reactivate this option, press down on the "Notify on this device" section another time
    .
    This will once again, turn the indicator icon blue. This signifies that this option has been activated. It isn't totally necessary to receive notifications from this application, as it is not something that is very urgent. This is an option we can choose to turn off if we would like to. Since it is not like Facebook or Email, where we are going to receive constant messages, it does not have so much urgency. It is perfectly okay to have it turned off, without facing any consequences.
