How do I turn on/off push notifications on Padlet?

Notifications are updates and information sent to your device, alerting you to what's latest on your padlet or a padlet you liked (❤). You'll be notified of the following activities by default:

  • When someone posts to a padlet you own or administer
  • When someone posts to a moderated padlet that requires your approval
  • When your padlets are remade
  • When your padlets are liked
  • When your contributor privileges on a padlet have changed
  • When you've been invited to contribute to a padlet
  • When someone requests access to your private padlet
  • When someone edits a comment you've posted
  • When someone edits a post you added to a padlet.

How to get mobile notifications

iPhone or iPad

First, you will need to upgrade to the latest version of Padlet for iOS. Notifications will not be turned on automatically, but when you open the app, you will be prompted. Tap 'Allow' to get notifications. 

If you want to disable notifications, go to your phone or tablet's Settings > Notifications > Padlet and switch off Allow Notifications.This is also where you can change how your notifications appear on your home and lock screen.


By installing the Padlet app, you agree to receive notifications but you can still disable this later. Android devices and operating system versions all look a little different. For most devices, just go to 'Settings' on the home screen >> Application Manager >> Padlet. You might have several options for customizing your notifications, or you'll see one box to uncheck. Make sure to tap OK to confirm. 

Control Notifications for Individual Padlets

Notification preferences can easily be managed in your Padlet settings. You can select which padlets you'd like to get notifications for!

  • Open Padlet web/desktop > click your profile photo > Settings > Communication
  • Use the toggle button to enable or disable notifications.

Web notifications typically appear on the bottom left corner of the page or the right collapsible panel for both PC and Mac

Make sure your browser permissions are not blocked to receive regular alerts.
Mobile App
  • Launch the Padlet app > click the ellipsis icon (...)
  • Click Settings > Communication
  • Use the toggle button to enable or disable notifications for specific padlets.
