    Hi.

    Just gone into Libre 2 and have set the alarms (which work) but when I go to bed, how do I silence my phone except for the Libre alarms? I've tried changing all sorts on my phone but the only way the Libre alarms work is if I leave my ringer on at night and get loads of Facebook notifications. If I turn the WiFi off, Libre insists it be left on. Getting annoyed.

    It should work if you turn the wifi off, but leave the Bluetooth on. So don’t use airplane mode which turns both off.

    I use an I-phone and literally turn off volume and to be fair I do hear the vibration but like yourself do get annoyed when the alarm goes off for the slightest fluctuation in blood glucose levels is annoying but just think of the consequences?

    I set my iPhone to sleep mode overnight, that silences everything, then in the Libre app you can choose to allow the alarms despite do not disturb. Works for me!
