When I turned on my laptop today I saw a large pop-up covering about 3/4th of my screen that indicated it was from Norton saying my Norton Security was updated and gave a link to click to "Continue to Norton". Version said 22.22.5. Anyone else get this? Is there a new version being released? From experience Norton does not "automatically" apply updates. They come through Live Update and applied via Live Update to get the latest version download/update. The logo and Norton colors made it look legit, but I do not trust pop-ups nor click on links that I'm not expectng to see/receive. It referenced Norton Security, Password Manager and I think one other item I can't remember now. I wish I had taken a picture of it.
I did not click the link and closed out of the pop-up and went to my "about Norton" page and my version is still 220.127.116.11. Then went to Live Updates and nothing was listed as a new product version update. I rebooted my laptop. No updates appeared when I manually ran Live Update several times. A check for current versions said I have latest version. History showed no evidence of new product version. Norton has not announced a new product update to my knowledge so I can only assume this is a scam pop-up. Hopfully it won't appear again. I think it is a phishing attempt to get unsuspecting people to click on their link and take them to fake Norton site. I didn't click on link so I'm assuming it's not legit.
I don't get a lot of pop-ups like this thankfully! I think there is a way to shut off Notifications on my HP but I don't remember how.
