My guess is that you're opted in automatically and that you have to opt out. You don't have a choice with the president alert.
My Android 8 phone never received an alert including the president test alert, Android 11 is when i started getting alerts. Maybe it's os related.

I don't know how many alerts we can get, here are a few.
Emergency Broadcast System, I think this was changed during 45's presidency to the Presidential Alert after so many made fun of him on TikTok.
Amber Alert, missing children
Silver Alert, missing adults
Weather Alerts
& Blue
My question remains as to whether you have to opt in to receive these? I have never received any of these alerts on my phone.

The following is from the link which does a very good job of describing Texas Blue alerts ( a leo was injured)

"Emergency alerts can be toggled on and off in your cell phone settings."
Except for presidential.
,.,.,.,.,..,,.,
The alert in question was made a Texas wide alert.
Fifteen of the smallest US states could fit within Texas simultaneously including Kentucky, Virginia, Indiana, Maine, South Carolina, West Virginia, Maryland, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Hawaii, Connecticut, Delaware, and Rhode Island.
Texas borders Mexico.
I'm surprised Interpol wasn't involved and that you didn't get an alert in Germany.

The problem here being this ->
This site is currently unavailable to visitors from the European Economic Area while we work to ensure your data is protected in accordance with applicable EU laws.

But if you want alerts.. we got alerts. Got 3 extreme weather warnings for extreme storms with thunder/hail today, ran outside each time to secure my shit, and what happened? Oh yeah, nothing. Except brooding heat (38℃) yay

What is a Blue Alert?
The Blue Alert program is used to alert the public about people who are accused of killing or seriously injuring police officers or other members of law enforcement, in an effort to apprehend the suspect as soon as possible, according to Texas DPS.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed an executive order in 2009 to start the program, which includes emergency messages sent to cell phones and other devices with relevant information about the suspect designed to facilitate tips and leads.

The criteria DPS uses to issue the alerts are:

A law enforcement officer must have been killed or seriously injured by an offender
The investigating law enforcement agency must determine that the offender poses a serious risk or threat to the public and other law enforcement personnel
A detailed description of the offender’s vehicle, vehicle tag, or partial tag must be available for broadcast to the public
The investigating law enforcement agency of jurisdiction must recommend activation of the Blue Alert to the Texas DPS

A couple nights ago a Texas Blue alert woke me up. Hundreds of miles away a LEO had been shot. It didn't give enough information to identify the suspect or a link to get more information.
I quickly added it to the other alerts that I've disabled.

Educate an European pleb.. what on earth is a LEO and a Blue Alert.. or is it really what we call "police notices" and you guys have that pushed to phones? Makes one wonder why.

I think it was turned on automatically with my new phone.
I think this was the alert, looks like they canceled it because of complaints.

Is this something you have to opt in or sign up for? I've never gotten one of those presidential alerts before. I get alerts from my county and city, but I had to go to their site and sign up for them.
