    The sound is loud and scares me to death every time it goes off! Very annoying in public places!

    Welcome to the forums! Which phone do you have? In most devices you can find them in the Messaging app settings. Another option is using the search option in the general settings. Tap on the magnifying glass top right and search for 'amber'.

    This may also be in the general system settings, in the sound and notification then other sounds. There is an Emergency tone item, you get 3 choices - Alert, vibrate, silent. There is no option to change what the sound is.

    Sumsung 5. As far as settings go, I can not find anything "Amber" based on a search. The closest I have been able to find "Emergency tone" which I have now set to "vibrate" -- it that it? If so, were there more options for broadcast messages under the "lollipop" version? I recently upgraded to 6.0. Is it possible they (Google) took away functionality?

    Hello Amber, welcome to the forums! Have you already tried in settings - messages - emergency alerts?

    Closest I could find to "emergency alerts" was "Emergency tone" which I have now set to "vibrate". I guess that is all I can do!

    You can turn Amber alerts on or off, turn vibrate on or off, and you can opt out of receiving Amber alerts. You cannot however adjust the alert volume.

    For Android 6:

    Alerts are now found in Apps on your main screen, not in settings. Select Apps at the bottom of your screen, it will take you to the page(s) of apps you have installed. Look for Emergency Alerts, the icon is often a triangle with an exclamation point. Touch it, then select More -> Settings in the top right.
