  1. In the YAPI iPad app, tap Configuration in the bottom right:


  2. If you've set up a YAPI password on this iPad, enter your password.

  3. Scroll down to the Messenger section and set the Message Filter to All.


  4. Tap Save, then tap OK.


  5. Force quit the YAPI app and reopen it for your changes to take effect.
