More Settings: Silent and Wifi Zone

There may be times you don't want any alerts to go off on your phone. In the evening you may not want your toddler to set off an alarm when they play with your keys. At work, you might not want to risk an alert going off accidentally in your pocket. This setting gives you control over the time and location your finder is active. Go to the More tab and select the Silent Period or Wifi Safe Zone to set specific times or wifi zones that you would prefer your finder to be inactive.
