If you are running iOS 15 or later, you would know about Focus Status. Focus Status, a part of Focus Mode, is enabled in Messages and other apps and displays a notice to other users that you have notifications silenced. It is displayed so users know you will not receive a notification immediately when they send you a message. Senders can tap Notify Anyway in case they have something urgent to share with you and need to reach you immediately.
Luckily, Focus Status is optional for users which means you can choose if you want to display the “user has notifications silenced” message to others or not. Here’s how to stop Messages from sharing your Focus Status on iOS in a few simple steps.
