Norton Mobile - Spammed daily with Norton messages

How can I stop the useless daily SPAM from Norton about clear scans or alternatively that new threats have been identified, so I should run a scan? As I have daily scans, the second message is useless, and who wants to know about clear scans anyway? It is just annoying time wasting SPAM. Ongoing notifications set to "off" btw

If you are referring to the notifications that show up when you swipe down on the screen, there is no way to stop those that I have found.

You could cut back on the daily scans, as any new app install is checked after installation. 

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

Thanks - yes it is those ones when you swipe down on the screen. If I see there is an icon up there I check it in case it is something important - and it is simply a time waster. Reducing the frequency of scans would probably just increase the frequency of the other message.

Not sure that would happen. But it is your call whether you think it is worth a try.
