When receiving a an email, message, or whatever (e.g., Gmail, snapchat, kakaotalk, google voice), the active notification appears as normal (vibrate/sound + screen display), but then the phone repeatedly displays the notification until it's unlocked. I do want the initial notification, but just the one. After the initial notification, further notif. only display the screen (no sound/vibrate).
When there isn't a notification, it doesn't display the clock over and over again as if I'm picking it up, so it's not like it's being moved around or something.
It did not used to do this, but I'm not sure exactly what setting/app/whatever would have caused this.
'Active notifications' has an option to disable certain apps or turn off completely, but there are no 'repeat' or 'lockscreen' settings located there, or in individual apps.
When I googled/searched for the issue (key words: active, notifications, repeat, stop, android, alert), I found these related posts, which seem to describe what I'm experiencing (albeit on different phones). Edit: ah, I can't post links yet, if you would like to look at them, please google the parts-of-the-url below
Has anyone else had this problem? What settings, if any, can I check for to disable these unwanted (repeated) notifications or how else might I go about it?
