Windows Defender came of age with the release of Windows 10, thus becoming the most comprehensive antivirus available natively and totally free. Windows Defender is one of the best antiviruses on the market, if not the best, and it is also free and is updated daily.

Another advantage that we find in Windows Defender is that it is integrated into the system so that its operation is perfect. We practically do not realize that it is installed, something that will never happen with third-party antivirus. That if in terms of notifications, it works the same as the rest of the antivirus.

Notifications, depending on the use we make of our equipment, they can become a nuisance, and many are the users who, depending on the application, end up disabling them completely. If you want to minimize the notifications you receive from Windows 10, including the updates and scans that Windows 10 regularly makes from our team, since you fully trust it, you can proceed to disable the Windows Defender notifications.

Turn off Windows Defender notifications

  • The first thing we must do is access the configuration options through the key combination Windows key + I.
  • Then we head up Antivirus and threat protection, and we access the column on the right.
  • In this column, we look for the option Protection notifications against threats and viruses.
  • To disable all notifications, we just have to turn off the switch to stop receiving notifications of both recent activity and exam results, threats that do not require immediate action, and files or activities that have been blocked.
