How to Recover Dismissed Notification on Android Device

Notifications can sometimes be an annoyance that may end up swiping away as soon as you see one. You might have also dismissed an important notification. That you might want to recover in order to remind yourself about it later in the day. In this article, we will tell you about how to Recover Dismissed Notification

Recovering a notification used to be a complex process that often involved shady third-party applications and usually a simple reminder. Instead of the complete recovery of your notification. Thankfully, the Filter box app by Ruoxin can help you solve this issue.

The filter box is a complete comprehensive notification manager. That can also help you manipulate and manage your notifications to extreme lengths. You can also create rules to automatically dismiss them, get analytics on your notifications. Set custom actions and also even debug them in case you are testing an application.

Recover Dismissed Notification with Filter box

Today we will take a look at how you can recover lost notifications on your Android device with the help of ‘Filterbox’. Just follow our simple step-by-step guide below to get started.

Note: Filter box offers a 90-day free trial to all its first-time users. After this, you have to make an in-application purchase of $3.99 in order to keep using this app. There are no microtransactions, only a single one-time payment to avail of the full functionality of the app.


  • Start off by downloading Filterbox app from the Play Store. Open the app after it has been installed on your device.
  • It will ask you to grant it permission for ‘Notification Access’. Just tap on the ‘Arrow’ and it will take you to the relevant settings page. Now simply turn on the toggle dedicated to the ‘Filterbox’ app.
  • Filter box will now show you relevant data for all your notifications on the home screen.
  • Start scrolling down in the ‘Dismissed’ section until you see the notification that you would like to recover.

Note: Depending on the application, the notification might be grouped together. If that is the case, tap on the concerning number in the bottom right-hand corner of the notification and find the concerned notification that you are looking for as shown above.

  • Tap on the notification, and you will see different options to control your dismissed notification.
  • Tap on ‘Restore’ (as shown above) and your notification will make its way back into your notification shade.

You should now have recovered the concerned notification from your collection of dismissed notifications.

Note: The notification will be restored along with all its content and the concerned app icon. But the name for the application will still be shown as ‘Filterbox’. Instead of the application that sent you the notification. Refer to the screenshot below for more reference.

We hope this guide helped you recover your lost notifications using the Filter box. Once you restore the notification, then you can also make use of ‘Quick Replies’ and other gestures to interact with your notification.

Note: This feature might be broken for some applications and messengers. But we expect it to get a fast fix with the next few updates of the Filter box.

Can you recover old notification dismissed before app’s installation

Well, yes and no. However, you can use the filter box to get back only those notifications that you got after setting up the application with necessary permissions. There is also another way available.

Android does keep a log of notifications, and you can access that log to find the old notifications that you got even before installing the FilterBox app. Check the article linked right below to access the notifications log.
