How to stop annoying app download prompt from …

Welcome to TN Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to get the most out of your connected devices, apps, and services.

Reddit may be the home page of the internet, but it desperately wants you to download its mobile app.

If you browse the popular link exchange site, you will no doubt be inundated with directions to download and use the app.

Although I don’t disagree with the hype in principle, Reddit’s approach is really intrusive and aggressive.

Fortunately, there is a simple way to turn it off.

When I say simple, I am not kidding.

It literally takes just a couple of taps.

First, press the hamburger menu at the top right of the screen.

Then press “Ask to open in app“Because of what he says”off.


It’s so easy you’ll kick yourself for not turning it off sooner.

Of course, if you reset your browsing history or open Reddit in incognito, you’ll have to do this again.

Fortunately, as we have shown here, this is a problem that is very easy to fix.
