Turn on or turn off Scheduled Scans

You can configure your Norton product to run a scheduled scan. Your Norton product runs the scan on a specific day and time.

If the scheduled scan begins when you use your computer, you can run the scan in the background instead of stopping your work. You need to turn on the Scheduled Scans feature to let your Norton product scan your computer. By default, the Scheduled Scans feature is turned off.

Turn on or turn off Scheduled Scans

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

  2. On the left pane, click Protect my Mac.

  3. In the Scheduled Scans row, move the switch to on or off.
