With the release of iOS 16, Apple introduced many new security features to enhance privacy and security. One such feature is the “Allow Paste” alert notification, which alerts users when you attempt to paste text or data from one app into another, or when there is text copied to the clipboard and you open a new app.
There are two views on this. While some users have welcomed this new security measure, others have found the constant “Allow Paste” notifications to be annoying. Since the release of iOS 16, many users have been searching for a way to turn off this alert on their iPhones.
However, there wasn’t a setting in iOS 16 that could turn off this alert as we told you in our other guide “How to Fix iOS 16 “Allow Paste” Popup Permission Issue.” Thankfully, with the release of iOS 16.1, a setting has been added to the device that makes it easy to disable this prompt.
Here, I will show you how to turn off the “Allow Paste” notification on your iPhone so you can continue to use your device without the constant interruption of this alert.
How to Turn Off Allow Paste Alert on iPhone on iOS 16
Here’s a step-by-step guide to disabling the “Allow Paste” notification on your iPhone running iOS 16:
Step 1: Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone.
Step 2: Scroll down and tap on the app where you’re seeing the “Allow Paste” notification. (For example, I saw the prompt when using Instagram, pCloud, or the BoB World app.)
Step 3: In the app’s settings, look for the option “Paste from Other Apps” and tap on it.
Step 4: Three options will appear: “Ask,” “Deny,” and “Allow.” If you frequently copy text to that particular app, select “Allow.”
Please note that you’ll need to repeat these steps for each app that shows the “Allow Paste” notification. By selecting “Allow” for each app, you will disable the notification and be able to paste text into that app without interruption.
Selecting “Deny” will also turn off the alert but prevent you from pasting data into that app.
