    You could always just not turn it on, if that's what you mean..

    Don't know what you mean by turn it on. I've never turned it on, the notifications just started appearing after the last update. I can't find any way to turn it off.

    There is no default way to stop it's notification they enabled it by default, the only thing is disable the notification dots ( and I don't understand the logic for that :tearsofjoy: )
    Try to disable that and see if it makes any difference

    I would suggest you to give them feedback here to

    Oh you're just talking about the notifications, got it. Yea, just refer to @the_o2 's post above, it's the best we've got right now I think.

    OnePlus, kindly provide Off/disable option for Zen mode ASAP.
    Zen mode is using my phone's battery and is a totally stupid option to include in first place.

    It can't use your battery if it is not enabled.

    Odd as it's not running on my cell, yet I used it once.

    You also can't disable it, but you can remove it using a computer. You'll have to search the forum for instructions.

    so I just restarted my phone, and stopped Zen mode....now it seems to stay like that....if it remains inactive like this than I don't need any on/off toggle...my time is already wasted over it.

    Ive stopped it as a running service and it disappears from the "running" list, yet shortly thereafter it gets restarted and i get the notifications. I've disabled the notifications supposedly to no avail.

    Zen mode can be disabled by swiping right on the desktop to go to the launcher, selecting the settings icon in the top right corner, go to More and use the slider to disable it. Hope this works, thanks!

    Sorry, but until I see that I can disable the Zen mode, I will no longer upgrade my oneplus phone to a new model. Just so you know, I bought a 3t, 5, 6t and 7 pro, but this one will be last I fear.

    Sorry, but I still don't understand why do you need to disable it? And what do you actually mean by disabling it?

    I really don't understand what's the big deal. You can literally go on the settings and turn off the notifications and it will never remind you again ( https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/...install-zen-mode.1088352/page-2#post-20666301 )

    It consumes little to no battery, I haven't had a single instance where it took enough battery that it appears on the battery draining list.

    I don't want to me notified that I used my phone long enough and it's time to put it down. Zen is not my mom, my wife not my boss.
