Enable or Disable Windows Security Virus and Threat Protection Notifications

The Notifications page of Windows Security settings lets you configure what kind of notifications you want to receive.

The Virus & threat protection notifications below are purely informational and none of them require immediate action from you. You’ll always receive notifications when there’s a problem that requires immediate action. The settings on this page simply let you specify whether you want to know things such as that a threat was successfully blocked, or that a malware scan completed uneventfully.

  • Recent activity and scan results
  • Threats found, but no immediate action is needed
  • Files or activities are blocked

In some cases, it may not be appropriate to show these non-critical notifications, for example, if you want to hide regular status updates. You can hide notifications that describe regular events related to the health and security of the device. These notifications are the ones that don’t require any action.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable non-critical virus & threat protection notifications from Windows Security in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
