Default [Q] Is there a way to not display multi-user notifications?

I have two user accounts, but my notification tray ALWAYS displays the notifications from both accounts. Is there a way to limit it so only one user sees their own notifications?

What apps are you referring to?

Whatsapp, Hangouts, Gmail, Email and a few others doesn't show in notification only via the LED for me. I'm not using the shared apps accounts though, I'm using a total separate account. There's two types of users right?

Hi Krueger,

Sorry, not sure I'm following your response. Would you be able to elaborate? I've been trying to find information on this and search doesn't really bring up much in Google.

On my Nexus 7 (2013), I have two users setup under Settings / Device / Users, one of them is the owner of the device.

When I'm using one of the users and look at the notification tray, I am seeing updates from Facebook, Outlook, and pretty much any application that either I or the other user has installed. I can't clear the other users notifications, only my own.

.. Is this normal? I hadn't really bothered to look into this too much until recently. But I'm simply stumped.

No it isn't. Standard behaviour in 4.3 as well as 4.4 is to separate all the notifications. I just tried it with my girlfriend's account on my N7 and created one of those shared profiles. Both work as expected.

Did you do something to your N7? Root, ROM, anything?

I'm stumped. Will update call with video or images.
