Configure the Download Insight Notifications option

You can use the Download Insight Notifications option to choose when you want Download Insight to display notifications.

By default, the Download Insight Notifications option is set to On. Based on the type of application you use to download your file, your Norton product does one of the following:

  • Notifies you each time when you download an executable file.

  • Notifies you only when you download a file that is infected with a local virus identification. If the file that you download is infected with a cloud virus identification, your Norton product removes the file from your computer and notifies you with the threat details.

When the Download Insight Notifications option is set to Risks Only, Download Insight notifies only when you download an infected or a suspicious executable file.

Setting the Download Insight Notifications to Risks Only does not turn off analysis of all the other executable files that you download. Whether or not you receive notifications of all files, Security History keeps a record of all the Download Insight activities. You can review the summary of the Download Insight alerts and notifications in Security History.

Configure the Download Insight Notifications option

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

  2. In the Settings window, under Detailed Settings, click Firewall.

  3. Click the Intrusion and Browser Protection tab.

  4. Under Download Intelligence, in the Download Insight Notifications row, do one of the following:

    • To receive Download Insight notifications only for the infected or the suspicious executable files that you download, move the Download Insight Notifications switch to Risks Only.

    • To receive Download Insight notifications for all files that you download, move the Download Insight Notifications switch to On.

  5. In the Settings window, click Apply, and then click Close.

Thank you!
