iMessage on Mac works as an extension of your iPhone, but if you no longer want it to send you messages, you can turn off notifications. However, if you have set up your iMessage account to receive notifications, you will still be able to receive them. If you don’t want to receive them, you can disable them temporarily or completely.

Turning off iMessage on Mac is easy, but you may have to do some things to make it happen. First, you’ll need to sign out of iCloud and then you can stop receiving iMessages on your Mac. You’ll be prompted to enter your Apple ID and password. Once you have these two pieces of information, you’re good to go.

iMessage on Mac uses your iCloud to sync your texts, so you’ll still be able to send and receive messages. However, you can turn off notifications on your Mac by changing settings in the app. To do this, you’ll need to open the app and go to the General tab. This is where you can turn off alerts, sounds, and sounds on the lock screen. You can also mute specific conversations.

When you’re ready to stop receiving iMessage on your Mac, you can either log out of iCloud or turn off notifications in System Preferences. Both options will prevent you from receiving iMessages, but you can always turn it back on again.

iMessage on Mac is a great feature for those who have an iPhone and a Mac. The iMessage app allows you to sync texts on all of your devices, including your phone and Mac. By using the same Apple ID on multiple devices, you can sync them. It’s a great way to keep in touch with friends. That said, it can be a bit annoying to get notifications on your computer. There are several ways to turn off notifications on your Mac.

First, you’ll need to sign out and sign in with your Apple ID. You can do this by clicking the Apple logo on the top menu bar on your desktop, or by opening the System Preferences app and clicking the “Notifications” option.

Next, you’ll need to click on the “iMessage” tab. In the middle of the Preferences tab, you’ll see a section called “Sign Out” and a button labeled “Sign Out”. Depending on your device, you may be asked to enter your Apple ID and password. Alternatively, you can use a dedicated uninstaller like CleanMyMac X.

After you have turned off notifications on your Mac, you can still send and receive messages. You’ll need to open the Messages app to do this. You can also mute certain conversations and block contacts, but those features will not be affected.
