Turn off or turn on Silent Mode for Mac

Your Norton product lets you manually turn on the Silent Mode option. When Silent Mode is turned on, your Norton product suppresses alerts and suspends background activities.

You can manually turn on Silent Mode before you perform any important task on your computer. Turning on Silent Mode manually before you perform your tasks helps you prevent alerts, notifications, or background activities interruptions. The activities that are suspended when Silent Mode is turned on run after Silent Mode is turned off. By default, Silent Mode is turned on.

Turn off or turn on Silent Mode

  1. In the Norton product main window, click Advanced.

  2. On the left pane, click Product Settings.

  3. In the Silent Mode row, move the switch to off or on.
