How to turn on notifications for the Hipcamp App:
Android and IOS systems offer customizable notification options. You can fine tune your settings so you don’t miss out on any messages from campers.
Settings can vary by phone, if the instructions aren't covered here for your device, we recommend that you Google how to turn on app notifications for your specific device.
Open your iPhone’s Setting App - it looks like this:
Tap the Notifications option in the second group of settings. This has a red icon with a white bell:
Scroll further down on your Notifications settings and tap 'Hipcamp' – every app on your iPhone has it’s own notification settings.
Once you’re there, toggle the ‘Allow Notifications’ switch to On.
You can then choose your alert preferences for the Hipcamp App. By default all three alert types are enabled. We recommend that you leave them all checked to get clear notifications from the Hipcamp app.
There are two main ways to do this on your Android phone:
1. In the Settings App
Open your device’s Settings. Each Android smartphone has a slightly different user interface but no matter the layout, you’ll find the Settings Icon on the Apps Screen. On your Home Screen, swipe up to access the Apps screen:
Tap Notifications > App Settings > Find the Hipcamp App > Tap the Notifications setting to On
2. On a Notification
Navigate to your notifications by swiping down from the top of your screen.
Hold and touch the notification, then tap Settings.
You can then allow notifications from that view.
Fine tune your notifications in the Hipcamp App
You’re able to control your Notification Preferences within the app.
Note - if you don't have notifications for the Hipcamp app turned on in your phone settings first, you may not be able to access your push notification settings.
- Open the app
- Tap Profile at the bottom right
- Tap on ‘Notification Preferences’
- Tap on ‘Push notifications’
- Ensure that ‘New messages’ is toggled on
