Enable "Do not disturb" on your Fairphone 2


In some situations, you want to mute your phone to eliminate distractions.
Then, Do not disturb mode comes to your rescue!

There are two ways to activate the Do not disturb mode

Method 1

You can use the Volume-down button:

  1. Press the Volume-down button multiple times.
  2. The phone will first reach Silent mode. The phone vibrates but does not give any sound.

Method 2

You can use the quick settings drop-down menu:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the display to open the notification panel.
  2. At the top are six quick setting icons: Do not disturb is one of them.

If the icon is not there, don't panic!

  • Swipe down once again to access more quick setting icons: the Do not disturb icon now shows.  

This is where you can also rearrange the quick setting icons to your liking.

  • Touch the pencil-shaped icon at top of the screen and edit the panel as you see fit.


You can customize Do not disturb to better suit your needs.
