How to automatically enable DND mode while driving on Android Phone

Using Phone or even getting distracted about calls, and messages are dangerous while driving. It can lead to accidents, death and much more. It is always a wise idea to enable DND mode when you are about to start driving. You can still look back all the notifications when you get off the driving seat. It is tedious to do it manually, mainly because most of the time we won’t remember it. In this post, I will share how you can automatically enable DND mode while driving on Android Phone.

The app which we are recommending here is Driving Detective. It works on almost any Android Phone and triggers the DND mode of the phone under certain conditions. It can automatically enable or disable DND mode when it detects that you are on the move.

Download and install the application from here. Then launch, and from there you can open the DND preferences. It opens system DND section where you can choose what should be turned off, i.e. notifications, calls etc.

There is a second option available—DND preferences. Here you can choose between Alarm, Total Silence and Priority only.

That said, when your speed goes as high as 50Km/hr, it triggers DND mode. However, there is a considerable drawback. You may not be the person who is driving, but only sitting in the back seat, and it will still enable the DND mode. Ofcourse there is no way to figure out of you driving or not, but if you often do, the app works perfectly.

According to the developer, the app doesn’t use any GPS data to detect driving, but only uses device hardware, aka accelerometer. Detection stops when walking for a short distance or remains parked for more than 15 minutes.
