How to set a classic alarm

To set up a classic alarm, tap on Profile. Tap on Set next to Alarm

Toggle ON the alarm:

Tap on the time to set when you want the alarm to ring:

You can choose your alarm sound, add a Fade In, and enable Snooze. Please also ensure that the notification permission for BetterSleep is active on your device settings.

When the alarm rings, it will trigger a notification. This notification will only appear if you authorize notifications for BetterSleep on your device. To enable notifications for our app on Android devices, open Apps > BetterSleep > Notifications. For iOS devices, open the iOS Settings app > tap on BetterSleep > tap on Notifications.

Tapping on the notification should open the alarm page.


To turn the alarm OFF, click on Wake Up to turn it OFF, or tap on Snooze to snooze.

This will only turn OFF the alarm for today.
