How to turn off Identity Protection popup from Norton Security

In the past two weeks I've gotten several popup messages telling me that Norton Security now includes identity protection.  I find these popups incredibly annoying and want to turn them off.  How do I do it?

Enable Norton browser extensions > cycle browser to confirm > set browser extensions to your preference [enable / disable] > cycle browser to confirm.

Norton wants user to experience Norton browser extensions.  After you satisfy Norton.  Set to user preference.  When Norton updates version number. User may have to satisfy Norton again.

Clarification... These aren't originating from within the browser - they're popping up on the system on the lower-right corner of the screen.  At the Operating System level.

I'll give it a try.  I appreciate the help.

I do question who at Norton thought this was a good idea.  It seems like the kind of thing I'd have to put up with using a crappy freeware solution.  If I wanted identity protection I'd seek it out.  Makes me question my choice in antivirus, to be honest.

I hear ya'.  Norton is mass market, offered AS IS.  Norton may not satisfy all users, all the time.
