Annoying Norton Pop-Up Asking to Install Browser Extension - Post #2

Every single day, Norton SPAMs me with an annoying notification to install their web extension. There is seemingly no way for me to turn it off.

I'm not paying Norton to increase my unwanted SPAM notifications. Is there a way for me to turn this off? My only option is to cancel my Norton membership and uninstall all Norton products, which I'm frankly going to do if there's no solution here.

Dunkirk The solution is clicking the "do not ask again" in the popup. It will then stop appearing.

If there is no Do not Ask Again, click on the button to add the extensions. That will open a browser page with all the extension options. Just close that page and you should not see the pop up again.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

"Should not" and what really happens doesn't match. Get these messages regularly - and why should I have to take action to stop an unwanted "request"? - over and over again. Add the useless daily spam on Norton mobile and the irritation factor is up to 9/10

The only options available are "Remind Me Later" and "Add". I've tried both; the first just keeps coming back. When I added it and then removed it the reminders returned. Happens in both Firefox and Safari on Mac on all machines with the current version. Have used Norton for many years, but this could be enough to get me to uninstall it on all. Why can't they understand that I want to use some features of the program without using all?

If there is no solution to this, I am deleting Norton. Period.
