In information technology, a notification system is a combination of software and hardware that provides a means of delivering a message to a set of recipients.[1] It commonly shows activity related to an account.[2] Such systems constitute an important aspect of modern Web applications.[3]

For example, a notification system can send an e-mail announcing when a computer network will be down for a scheduled maintenance.

The complexity of the notification system may vary. Complicated notification systems are used by businesses to reach critical employees.[1] Emergency notification systems may take advantage of modern information technologies. Governments use them to inform people of upcoming danger.[1]

In mobile phones and smartphones, there is a dedicated hardware sometimes included such as a notification LED to deliver messages or notify users.
