How do I turn off LED flashing for unread notifications on my Note9?

Last modified : Sep 19. 2018

The LED indicator lights up when the screen is off to show statuses of sound recording, unread notifications and low battery levels.


Follow the below instructions if you would like to have this feature turned off:

LED Indicator

Launch the Settings app > tap on Display > LED indicator.

Can I turn off the LED indicator for individual contacts?

Blink light

You can only turn off the LED indicator for individuals for Message notifications. Each conversation can have it's own Notification LED indicator switched off.


Launch the Messages app > tap on a conversation > More Options (the three dots) > switch to Custom > tap on Settings icon > Blink light.
