Sometimes we get delayed notifications from Kasa /Tapo APP on Android smartphones, or could not get notifications when the phone screen is turned off, which could be caused by notification rules on Android operating systems itself based on the hardware manufacturers.

Here we list some settings to adjust or optimize on your android smartphones that may help to fix the delayed notifications situation.

Note: If you are using a third-party security APP on the phone, please add the Tapo/Kasa APP to its exceptions or whitelist.
