Alerts and notifications

The Alerts and notifications section allows you to configure how threat alerts and system notifications are handled by ESET Cyber Security.

Disabling Display alerts will disable all alert windows and is only recommended in specific situations. For most users, we recommend that this option be left on its default setting (enabled). Advanced options are described in this chapter.

Selecting Display notifications on desktop will cause alert windows that do not require user interaction to display on the desktop (in the upper-right corner of your screen by default). You can define the period for which a notification will be displayed by adjusting the Close notifications automatically after X seconds value (5 seconds by default).

Since ESET Cyber Security version 6.2, you can also prevent certain Protection statuses from displaying in the program's main screen (Protection status window). To learn more about this, see the Protection statuses.
