Annoying Pop-up way too often

Please stop annoying me with the Norton splash screen all the time telling me "You Are Protected."

It's like a 4 year old looking for praise because they didn't poop in their pants yet today.

Just do your job in the background and I'll be happy to renew every year. Any way to turn this off?

That is displayed on the main Norton GUI.  There is no way to disable that.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Hi OvejaViejo,

Do you mean to say that the splash screen you are referring i.e. the Main UI screen automatically pops up without you launching it from the desktop shortcut icon or the tray icon?

I think you're talking about the popup in the bottom right corner which is super annoying especiallly if you have multiple devices..... more norton spam!

You can turn those off too. 

Open the Main Window, click settings, click Administrative Settings, look for "Norton Task Notification" and slide it to off. Click apply and close. You can also look for "Special Offer Notification" in Administrative Settings and slide it to off, click apply and close.

Read here for a description of each Administrative Setting https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/norton-security/22.17.3.50/solutions/v19213721_ns_retail_en_us?client=norton&site=nrtn_en_US

Yes, that is exactly what I am saying. It randomly is open, usually after the PC has been idle for a while and I wake it up.

    You cannot delete the actual post. But you can go into the duplicate post to edit and just delete all content there. Just leave a 'Duplicate post deleted by poster' message so we know  it was not a glitch in the forum software.

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

    Hi OvejaViejo,

    You would see this Main UI opening up automatically once after every successful product update. This is by design and this is mainly done to let our users know that there is an update which happened to the product and current protection state will reflect in the Main UI.

    Well, that pretty much negates the benefits of automatic updates. I don't need it to announce that it's working fine. I need it to announce when something is wrong.

    You just confirmed that my first post nailed it.

    At least make it optional.
