Whether it’s debating something silly with a friend, or listening to your favorite playlist, Alexa is always at our rescue with instant help. There’s so much that can be done with the magic of Alexa. However, if Alexa ruins your surprise gift, that wouldn’t be entertaining at all.  

If your kid or partner is suspicious that you have ordered something, they can just ask “Alexa, where’s my stuff?” and Alexa may blurt out all that you have planned. There goes your whole surprise! 

To save yourself from embarrassment, disable notifications on your Echo devices using the Alexa app.

Disabling Amazon Alexa Notifications

1.  Open the Alexa App.

2.  Select “Open” and open “Settings”.

3.  Click on “Notifications”.

4.  Then, click on “View Notifications”.

5.  Use the tab to turn the notifications off.

P.S. You can always turn on your notifications following the same steps as above.
