Remove all devices from Intrusion Prevention exclusion list

If you are sure that a device on your network is safe, you can change the trust level of the device to Full Trust. You can then select the Exclude from IPS scanning option to exclude these trusted devices from Intrusion Prevention scan. Excluding Full Trust devices from Intrusion Prevention scan saves the scan time and improves the network speed of your computer. When you exclude a Full Trust device from Intrusion Prevention scan, your Norton product does not scan any information that is received from this device. The Full Trust devices that are excluded from Intrusion Prevention scan are added to Intrusion Prevention exclusion list.

If you find that any of the devices that you excluded from Intrusion Prevention scan is infected, you can purge the saved exclusion list and remove all the devices.

You can purge the saved exclusion list under the following circumstances:

  • Any of the devices that you excluded from Intrusion Prevention scan is infected.

  • Any of the devices that you excluded from Intrusion Prevention scan attempts to infect your computer.

  • Your home network is infected.

When a device on your network attempts to infect your computer, AutoBlock stops all the access requests from this device.

When you remove all the devices from the saved exclusion list, Intrusion Prevention scans every request from all the devices that access your computer.

Remove all the devices from the Intrusion Prevention exclusion list

  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 Intrusion Prevention, in the Exclusion List row, click Purge.

  5. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes.
