Do Alarms Turn Off Automatically After a Long Period of Time? (Android)

Here's the story. I went to a vacation overseas but still would like to receive sms. So I left my old phone back home with my sim and setup an sms forwarding stuff that automatically sends all my received sms to my email. (using Tasker and AutoMail since I already use those).

Unfortunately, I forgot to turn off my weekday alarm. I was wondering if the alarm turns off after some time that it wasn't dismissed (an hour? half a day? etc.) because I'm worried that my neighbor (we live in a condo) would go nuts if my phone is ringing 24/7 while I'm away.

Phone is on Android 10, LG G7 ThinQ, and the alarm app is Sleep As Android.

Should turn off after like 10 minutes. You'll have a notification about a missed alarm.

Yes, they do.

I think it's mostly (depending in the specific Version/OS) about 10 minutes default. For example, the Google Clock app lets you change the "silce after" option, with the default being 10 minutes.

Edit: I've tried to look for your specific alarm app but couldn't find anything online (and I don't want to download it just for testing), but maybe you could just download it wherever you are right now and search of there is a default option or test it?

Good on you for not already knowing the answer, because you always get up!

I don't sleep through alarms but I have showered through a few, they turned off after 10 minutes or so.

Mine is set to time out at 5 minutes. I have been using it for years however and I'm not sure if I have changed it. You can find it under alarm when you go into the settings
