How do I untrack a page?

You can untrack pages in three different ways:

1. Go to the IMDbPro page for the person or title you wish to untrack and tap “Tracking”, which will revert to “Track”.

2. Go to the "Tracking" tab from the navigation bar, tap the 3 vertical dots next to the person or title you wish to untrack and tap the "Stop tracking" option.

3. Go to the “Inbox” tab from the navigation bar, tap the 3 vertical dots next to any article that contains a person or title you no longer wish to track. Select “Stop tracking” and the menu will automatically update to “Track”. When you untrack a person or title, articles you previously received will not be removed from the Inbox.

How can I tell why I received a particular notification in my Notifications Inbox?

Each notification in your Inbox will include a note that you received the notification “Because you track…” and the name of the person or title you’re tracking.

Can I delete notifications from the Notifications Inbox?

No, at this time you won’t be able to delete notifications from the Inbox.

Where can I see all the pages I track?

To see all the pages you track, select the "Tracking" tab from the navigation bar at the bottom of the app screen.

Why do I not see some news for people/titles I track?

Not all news articles that mention the title or name you're tracking will appear in the Inbox. Only articles which we believe are relevant to the items you're tracking and only from Variety, Deadline, The Hollywood Reporter, and Box Office Mojo will show up there. On the other hand, news pages for people and titles will show all news articles where that person or title are mentioned anywhere in the article.
