One of iOS 14’s more exciting features lets you tag someone in an iMessage chat the same way you would @ anyone on Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms. Even if the conversation is off, you can get a message when you are mentioned, which helps you jump in only when needed. But if you want complete silence, then disable contact notifications altogether.
Sorry, you can not prevent anyone from tagging you in the Messages app. There is no kill-all switch that does this for all your contacts. So anyone who has you in their contacts can mention you in a group iMessage thread. By default, you get alerts for when it happens, even when the chat is off, but you Can disable these messages on your iPhone.
Click “Messages”; in the Settings app. During Mention, turn off “Notify me”, which is enabled by default (as mentioned earlier). If you have any off-call conversations in messages, you will no longer receive notifications when your name is tagged in them.
Although everyone with iOS 14 will still be able to tag you in an iMessage group conversation in Messaging, if the conversation is off you will not receive notifications when that happens. Instead, you get the usual tags (if enabled) that appear on the Messages app icon when you receive a new text message – but no banners, lock screen alerts, or message center alerts.
