Quick Start – Chrome Extension. Get up and running in 2 minutes with the Chrome Extension.
I have installed the Chrome extension, but I don’t know how to turn it on?
Open www.gmail.com. Look for the TURN DND ON button below the COMPOSE button. Click the TURN DND ON button to start the sign in process. The first time you click the TURN DND ON button, you will need to sign into Google and authorize DNDEmail. You must approve the permissions DNDEmail needs in your Gmail in order for the extension to work. We do not read or download your email. We need permissions to add and remove labels from your Gmail in order to manage the do not disturb the process. After the first login/authorization, you have to click TURN DND ON one more time. This will now give you the dialog box to activate DND Email.
I want exclude certain senders or labels from the do not disturb — How do I do that?
You can always whitelist specific senders and labels. When you whitelist a sender, messages from that sender will always be delivered to your Inbox. If you whitelist a label, messages in the label will always be delivered to your Inbox. To add senders or labels to your whitelist, login at https://app.dndemail.com — the options are near the bottom of the page.
Messages still show up in my Labels/Folders, even when Do Not Disturb is enabled — how do I change this?
Simply enable the HIDE FROM LABELS setting at https://app.dndemail.com (near the bottom of the page).
When enabled, if do not disturb is on, new messages are marked as read to hide them from labels, not just the Inbox. Messages are marked UNREAD when DND is turned off or messages are fetched.

How do I remove DNDEmail from my Gmail account?
Note: If you removed the DNDEmail Chrome Extension WITHOUT turning off DND, you may need to manually disable DNDEmail. To manually disable DNDEmail:
1. Go to https://myaccount.google.com/permissions?pli=1 then look for DNDEmail in the list, click it, then click REMOVE.
2. In Gmail, you may also want to delete a label called “DND-INBOX”
I am unable to log in or register.
If it is not working, I suggest you try this: cancel your login, then login in again. It will take about 1 minute total.
To cancel, Go to https://myaccount.google.com/permissions?pli=1 then look for DNDEmail in the list, click it, then click REMOVE.
Then simply go back to https://app.dndemail.com and login again. That should fix the connection issue.
Your settings and schedule will NOT be deleted.
Why does DNDEmail Request So Many Permissions on a Gmail Account?
We try to use the minimum level of permissions necessary to manage the labels attached to your emails. That is how we implement the service — while DND is on, we put your email in special labels. Then we move it from those labels to your Inbox.
We do not read or even retrieve any of the following:
1. To/from information
2. Subject lines
3. Message content
