    Alarm issue

    Hi I have a PC running Windows 10, and also a Microsoft Lumia win 10 mobile

    Just recently, my PC and my mobile have been too much in sync with each other, because, if I set an alarm on my phone, the same alarm then sounds on my PC through the speakers, which can be V loud! Its never ever done this before this past couple of weeks.

    Anyone know how to turn the alarm sync off? I cant find anything in my alarm settings on either device.

    Any help greatly appreciated! :)

    ok so I did this on my phone, but this morning my alarm went off, and I could hear my PC downstairs sounding the same alarm.

    Any other ideas?

    I found an option on my PC to not let the alarm app run in the background. Not sure if this will help or not.
