How-To: Turn off notifications for Malwarebytes Premium for Windows

Notifications can be distracting from your work or create a disturbing experience. Some of these notifications may not be necessary to the user, and they can be turned off.

Malwarebytes categorizes notifications as either non-critical or critical. Most critical notifications cannot be turned off, but we understand if a user does not want to receive pop-ups that are purely informative.


Critical notifications include warnings when Real-Time Protection is off, for example. A non-critical notification will inform you of smaller items, such as when a task is complete.

To disable non-critical notifications:


  • Go to Settings
  • Click the Applications tab
  • Scroll down to Notifications
  • Click or slide the toggle to OFF


Note : Critical notifications cannot be disabled, excluding Real-Time Protection reminders.


Or change how quickly notifications close:

If you choose to leave notifications enabled, you can select the amount of time the notifications remain displayed on your screen.
 
  • Click on the drop down menu next to Close notifications after:
  • Select the number of seconds desired.


Here is a list of critical notifications that still appear even if notifications are disabled:
  • Trial Expired
  • License Expired
  • Malware Detected
  • Non-Malware Detected
  • Scan Complete – Malware Detected
  • Scan Complete – Non-Malware Detected
  • A new version of Malwarebytes is ready to be installed

Below are notifications that require the user's attention for a resolution:
