Default [Q] VZW LG G2 KitKat official - Missing Notification Access?

I'm running the official KK ROM and am unable to locate "Notification Access" or the notification history that was supposedly added in 4.3. It's supposed to be under Settings > Security > Notifications, but there's no such thing on my device. This is supposed to replace the Accessibility Services system for apps wanting to better control notifications.

I have 5 apps listed under Accessibility Services: Greenify and Light Flow and then 3 related to my Pebble Steel- Pebble, Nav Me, and Music Boss.
All are turned off in Accessibility Services and appear to be working properly. Light Flow does not give me a warning that the notification system needs to be enabled.

Where do I toggle these notifications services?

Edit- This is what I'm talking about: http://tech.firstpost.com/news-analy...ns-101802.html

Hmm, you're right, it's not accessible through the settings menu. However, some launchers, (like Nova) can create an activity shortcut to that service/setting. Alternatively, there are apps available on the Play Store that can create activity shortcuts as well.

Thanks for the idea. Just created a shortcut to Settings > Notification Access using Quick Shortcut Maker and it works perfectly.

btw it turned out light flow, music boss, and nav me were already granted access. I'm wondering if one of those apps took me to that settings page before to have me enable it's access, and I granted it to everything listed at that time.

I know LightFlow does prompt for access/permission when you install/open it, and I would assume the other apps you mention probably do as well.

it's possible. I have some apps that take me to the old accessibility services page still. I didn't know there was a new notification access system when I would have enabled those settings. when I installed a new app it that required this, it took me to accessibility, but then said not to use accessibility in 4.3+ lol. I was confused until I discovered the new notification access, and even more confused when I couldn't find it's settings page.
