How do I turn off these annoying McAfee popups on my PC?

On a near daily basis I receive unwanted popups at the bottom of my PC. Sometimes it is a message about breaches that should come to my email instead since that is semi-private whereas my laptop screen is not. Other times it is an unwanted product solicitation for shredding, a service that I will not be purchasing.

I have visited my McAfee app settings on my laptop as well as within my online McAfee account and there is nothing that I am able to find that will allow me to stop these relentless notifications from popping up at the most inconvenient times when I am using my laptop for study sessions with my peers or projecting my laptop screen.

What do I need to do to get these popups to stop???
