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 188.8.131.52. 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.
HP Home Edition-64 bit,Win10 ver 21/H2, Norton 360 Ultimate, ver 184.108.40.206, Chrome Ver. 103.0.5060.66 (current).

Thank you for posting on the Norton Community. It was a wrong messaging, but it has been corrected now. We have released Norton Security 220.127.116.11. If you're continuing to see this issue, please let us know. Thank you, again, and we apologise for the confusion.
