You’ve only seen notifications from Windows Defender once or twice a day, but after installing Windows 10 Anniversary Update, you start seeing more pop-ups.

Why do you get so many Windows Defender notifications all of a sudden? Make you feel uncomfortable! Is there a way to disable it? The instructions below help you.

Turn off notifications in Windows 10 Anniversary

Windows 10 Anniversary Update comes with a new “Advanced Notifications” feature.

When the Advanced Notifications feature is enabled, Windows Defender notifies you of many used actions that take place quietly in the background. And as with almost every significant change to Windows, many users like it while many others despise it.

Since you’re not all that interested in it, you’ll be happy to know that it’s straightforward to turn off Advanced Notifications. Here’s how:

1 – Click the start button.

2 – ClickSettings.

3 – Click Update & security.

4 – Click theWindows Defenderending link in the left-hand column.

5 – Scroll down to “Advanced notifications” and switch the setting to Off.

From now on, you’ll only see important notifications from Windows Defender that need your immediate attention. All other activities will now take place quietly in the background.
