so I'm pretty annoyed to say the least.
I have been having pop ups from the Total Protection application on my pc for a while.
and while all the notification settings are off i still get pop ups. I was able to get some help instantly from the support team which is awesome. However I was disappointed that there was no way to turn it off. it sucks because for me i just want a virus protection software that sits in the back and does its job without me having to even see its on my pc. I don't want to feel like it is the virus itself... I think its great the it tells me if somethings wrong and such but when it keeps giving notifications about adding new devices??? I just wish I could silence it all together. especially the fact it pops up in a box on my screen.

id like to say thanks to the 2 staff that tried to help when I came to them.

Re: Notifications

Maybe a mod can help here.

Re: Notifications

McAfee must fix this or their product won't be used by me.  I'm on Windows 11 in July 2023 and I can't disable REAL McAfee notifications (popups) to my Windows 11 notification area.  I can't even close them and have to wait for them to time out on their own.
