How to stop getting emails from Nextdoor

NextDoor is a popular neighborhood ‘hyperlocal social network’ app that is mostly gossip, rants, and occasional local news, that is well known for sending a constant barrage of emails and email post updates to any users who signed up for the app at some point in history.

If you’re like many NextDoor users, you have clicked the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the pointless emails many times, tried the Apple Mail ‘unsubscribe’ button a half dozen times, and yet still find yourself getting constantly emails from the service.

So how do you actually stop getting emails from Nextdoor?

As you may have already discovered, Nextdoor makes unsubscribing from all emails impressively tedious, but we’ll show you how you can do it, so that you can finally stop getting constant emails from Nextdoor.

How to Stop Getting All Emails from Nextdoor

  1. Open the Nextdoor app on your device
  2. Tap on your profile, then tap on “Settings”
  3. Choose “Notifications”

  5. Now here comes the fun part, see this giant list of notifications? You have to manually go through each one, and toggle several email settings to the OFF position, repeatedly, for every individual category: Posts, Comments and replies, Mentions, Reactions and virtual gifts, Messages, Public agencies, Invitations and connections, Groups, Events, For Sale & Free, Digests, etc

  7. Tap on each individual category and toggle the “Email” switch to the OFF position for every single option on the screen – don’t forget to scroll down as you’ll often find even more email toggles to turn off

  9. Repeat until every ’email’ option is disabled for every section of emails that Nextdoor blasts you with

Yes it is that tedious to stop getting all emails from Nextdoor. It’s important to be thorough and toggle every single switch for email off, as I left a few on and suddenly I was getting constant emails from Nextdoor still anyway.

Amazingly enough, there’s not a single universal “stop getting emails from Nextdoor” option, and instead they have broken it down into several dozen individual toggles in separate sections of settings, all of which is required to turn off to stop getting emails from the service.

Option 2: Stop All Emails from Nextdoor by Deleting Your Account

Another way to stop getting Nextdoor emails is to delete your account from the service.

Whether or not to delete your account is entirely up to you, but ask yourself the same question any time you are considering removing your account from a service; have you received some tremendous benefit or something that has made your life better from the Nextdoor app? If the answer is yes, you probably don’t want to delete your account, where as if the answer is “no all I see are people I don’t know complaining about stray cats and the sound of leaf blowers” then you might be thrilled to delete your account from Nextdoor.

What do you think of Nextdoor and their constant emails that are difficult to unsubscribe from?

    I don’t even have it cause it requires a higher strength then I have so it’s not registered and not on my iPad but am still getting the stupid emails

  2. Larry Fick says:

    I have gone through the unsubscribe procedure several times in the past 5 years. I keep submitting their emails to the last 3 years. The past week I’ve been marking them as Unwanted. Nothing does any good.

  3. John says:

    Thank you!

  4. Charlie says:

    Wished I never signed up. Worse than FB, way worse to get off…

  5. Judith K Bogdanove says:

    Thanks. I will not unsubscribe, but I do appreciate the ability to toggle off what seem like redundancies or too much complaining. I disagree about stray cats. Mine was lost for 3 days, and the encouragement we got from Next Door was very comforting. I like that neighbors try to help each other. Ditto on the suggestions for good plumbers, handypersons, tree-trimmers, contractors, etc.

      I think it depends on the area/town. I lived in a small town and Nextdoor was useful, neighborly people and friendly discussions, relevant topics and helping hands, etc. Then I moved to a big city suburb, and Nextdoor became horrible toxic gossip, awful political comments and divisive debates, and nothing but rude people, it’s like all those horrible bumper stickers and yard signs came together to clash on who is the biggest loser. City life has all the wrong priorities!

      But I digress. Getting rid of Nextdoor emails is so difficult! I deleted my account and they still send me garbage!

  6. Not specifically Apple related, but, yeah, Nextdoor really is a scourge. It had so much potential for sharing useful neighborhood resources and it ends up being just mean spirited complaints (mostly)

  7. Mears J says:

    I cannot find an app for Nextdoor although I keep getting these emails?

      You can turn off emails on Nextdoor’s website as well by doing the same process as above. Just click your profile picture which is at the top left of the screen.
