How to Disable Contacts, Location, and Event Suggestions on Mac

You can turn OFF/ON contacts, location and event suggestions on your Mac at your own terms and conditions to avoid being bothered by needless notifications.

There are times when I wish to work with complete peace of mind on my MacBook Pro and just don’t want to be diverted by alerts. Apart from unsubscribing to unnecessary emails or services, I make sure to enable or disable contacts, location and event suggestions on Mac purely based on priority.

Luckily, macOS offers complete freedom to let you be the king of your choice. If you find the constant suggestions annoying, you can easily put an end to them to ensure nothing comes between you and your work.
