No Tasker needed – Block Persistent Notifications In Android Oreo!


AutoNotification 3.0 is out!

Get it on Google Play
With it comes the ability to block any app’s notifications, including those pesky “running in the background”, or “app is displaying over other apps” Android System notifications! And best of all, the feature is totally free and Tasker isn’t needed at all!

This will work in any language, because you specify which notifications you want to block by their title or text.
