Can't disable "At Risk" when turning off Anti Phishing

Product: Norton Security
OS: Windows 7 Pro x64
Issue: When disabling anti phishing, an 'At Risk' warning is persistently displayed and cannot be disabled

Previous versions (eg: Norton Internet Security **) allowed the user to hover over the disabled item and click 'ignore warnings'. No such option exists in the current version of the Norton product. I do not need or want the anti phishing capability and disable it (sending URLs Norton is a privacy issue with me). With the current version it causes an exclamation (!) to appear on the tray icon.

Since I know the issue is not a real "issue", having a warning on the icon detracts from knowing when there actually is a problem. Given that a user can disable all the other web protections in the Identity category without getting this warning, please allow us to disable anti phishing as well.


** Older product allowing disabling of this warning: https://community.norton.com/en/forums/after-updating-2250124-no-way-dis...

Re: Can't disable "At Risk" when turning off Anti Phishing

The current version still allows the ignore for the same features it allowed in the past. The Anti Phishing feature is not one of those you can ignore.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
