    I use a social media app called WeChat. Each time I receive a message the phone flashes. How do I stop this?

    You mean the camera flash on the back of the phone? Do you have it enabled in General - Accessibility - LED flash for alerts?

    Welcome to iMore, Bob. I've never heard of WeChat. Is there a settings option? Hopefully, another member will be along soon who can help you. Good luck.

    First check the app's settings, if it has them.
    Next check the app in the phone's settings menu. Scroll down and see if it's there. If so, tap it and see if that notification setting is there. Does any other notification or alert flash that way? If so, see above.

    You may have the LED Flash enabled for notifications, in the Accessibility section of your Settings. Although it doesn't come turned on.

    This was the problem. I was not aware (obviously) I had enabled flash for alerts. Thanks for your help !!
