Do you "notify anyway"?

I was messaging a friend last night and midway through our conversation, I was alerted that they had turned off notifications to “focus” or something. I also clocked that it had JUST turned to 10pm, so I figured it was probably a scheduled feature on their iPhone.

The new iOS offers you the option to “notify anyway” when you are alerted that someone’s message notifications are turned off. And so… I did. And they responded, but I can’t help but feel like I invaded their privacy? Was that not cool of me? Did I cross a boundary? We were literally in the middle of a convo about plans for the next morning, I didn’t want to get lost in the shuffle of bedtime routines!
