The Zinio Alert Messenger runs alongside the Zinio Reader, when you're online and will notify you when a new publication has become available. To stop this service, you can follow one of the below options:
- Deselect "Check on Startup" from the Alert Messenger menu
- Deselect "Check on Startup" from Zinio Reader's Preferences -> My Library menu
- Log out of the Reader before closing
Our recommendation to have the best reading experience is to use our apps within iPad or Android or the online reader at www.zinio.com while we are busy developing a new offline reading experience!
