What are push notifications?
Push Notifications, just like SMS alerts are messages that appear on a lock screen of your device. They are designed to catch your attention and sent by App publishers if you have their app installed. To receive them, you don’t have to be necessarily in the app or using your device but opt-in for it, when setting up or installing the app. Moreover, since it’s not you who decides what alerts you see or when, you get curated alerts from that app at any time.
