Many people decided to turn off Amber alerts on Galaxy A32, and so can you. The AMBER system starts in 1996. Of course, the mobile phone back then was not as much as it is now. However, the government still uses and relies on the system to spread information about a missing child.
Amber is the broadcasting system that will keep you updated on news about a potential abduction case. It stands for America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response. And several states, such as Hawaii, have their unique name for the system in respect of several cases that happened in the area.
Anyway, having an Amber alert on means you may receive multiple messages in a day. Especially when there is a recent case happening nearby.
