What type of notifications can I receive?

With a subscription, you can receive either email or SMS notifications. If you have SMS notifications enabled, you will only receive SMS.

Can I filter the notifications that I receive?

Yes! Besides being able to receive notifications for all Recall and Safety alerts, you can pick among 3 different filters to cut down on the noise, and receive only the alerts that you care about

You can filter by multiple Categories, which will only notify you if an alert comes in matching the Category that you've selected.

You can filter by Alert Types: for example if you're not interested in "Information Updates", you can exclude it from your settings.

Lastly, you can filter by Keywords, which Recall Monitor will match against the title of the alert and notify you if there's a match.
