The Dashboard provides an overview of protection status, module updates, license information and product activation options, and displays a summary of notifications.

Protection status

When everything is working without any issues, the protection status is green. If there are options to improve the protection status of your system, or insufficient protection status is detected, you will see "Attention required" on the Protection status tile. Click the tile to see the details.


Mute or un-mute protection status alerts

Each non-green protection status alert can be muted by clicking Mute this alert. The protection module status will turn grey, and the protection module tile will be moved to the bottom of the list. Click Un-mute this alert to turn the status notification back on.

If the protection status is disabled via ESET Security Management Center, neither Un-mute this alert, nor Enable is available in the Dashboard.

Module update

If all modules are up to date, the Module update tile is green. If module updates are suspended temporarily, the tile turns orange. If the update fails, the tile color changes to red. Click the tile to see the details.

To launch the update of detection modules manually, click Module update > Check and update, and wait till the update completes.


If the license is close to expiration, the License tile turns orange. If the license is expired, the tile turns red. Click the tile to see available options on changing the license.
