Silent Mode Bypass is a free app that automatically disables Silent/Vibration mode when receiving calls and texts from selected contacts.

Get it on Google Play

Mostly useful at night if you know you can receive important or emergency calls and texts from certain contacts, but want to keep everything else silenced.

How It Works

  • Start the app, and add one or more contacts to the Bypass list
  • When your phone is in Silent or Vibration mode and you receive a call/SMS from one of the selected contacts, the app restores normal ringtone settings
  • Enable and disable the Bypass at will
  • Tap on a selected contact to remove it
  • Minimal to zero impact on battery life
  • No ads


  • This app only works for phone calls and SMS messages; any other kind of notification or sound is not affected
  • SMS support is EXPERIMENTAL
  • When the app restores normal ringtone settings, you have to put the phone back to Silent/Vibration manually
