    Default Unwanted continuous alarm upon any notification

    At some point in the past (in a moment of foolishness), I installed some piece of software on my Samsung S4 that sounds an audible alarm whenever any notification appears on the bar. It starts beeping and will not stop until I swipe down. As my employer has insisted on a password, this is now often a minute-long process and very annoying and occasionally embarrassing.

    Note, I like notifications; I just want to stop this alarm going off every time I get one from any application.

    I cannot find anything intuitive in any list of applications or any other system list. How do I get rid of it?

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to Android Central
    You say you installed third party software on your S4. Do you remember exactly what it was that you downloaded?

    Welcome to the forums.
    I would suggest that, if you think it is a third party app, to start uninstalling them. Or if it was one you recently installed, you can go to the Play store and see you recently installed apps.

    No, that's the maddening thing! I cannot remember the name.

    I vaguely remember looking at it and thinking it would help if I had left my phone in another room. But it turns out that it is merely annoying, and now inconvenient.

    Cheers
