    I didn't noticed that before, because I only turned off group notifications, but now I tried turning all of them off including alerts and you are absolutely right! there is that annoying screen telling you to turn it on everytime.

    That is not right, they should respect users choice to not get notifications, don't see a workaround right now, but you can try sending feedback to them, telling them to stop doing that, maybe they can fix it in a release. You are probably not the only one getting annoyed by that. What if you try turning them on but without sounds and to not show?

    Hopefully we'll see a fix for that.

    Yeah, that pop-up is annoying. I don't want a banner or alert either but it's the only way to get rid if it for now. I chose the banner which is only slightly less annoying.

    I heard that they are going to change it to a free app with free access for a year and then will start charging for service every year after the first. So what about those of us who originally paid for the app?

    If anyone knows of a better messenger app, please let me know, thanks!

    Found the workaround!

    Select "settings" from within the app, not from iPhone settings. Go to in-app notifications and select "none" and no pop-up will come up. You can also remove the preview and select ringtones for single and group what's app messages.
