Manage popup notifications

To change the behavior of Avast popups, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Avast user interface and click Settings.
  2. Ensure the General tab is selected, then click the downward facing arrow next to Popups to expand the panel.
  3. Manage the following notification options:
    • Show popup offers for other Avast products: sends notifications about others ways you can improve your protection. If you use a paid version of Avast Antivirus, you can untick this option to disable popups.
    • Set the length of time that the following types of popup messages are displayed:
      • Info popups: displays notifications about general Avast activity.
      • Update popups: displays information about program and virus definitions updates.
      • Warning popups: displays warnings about possible risks, such as opening an unknown file.
      • Alert popups: notifies you about threat detections and other important incidents.
      The default time setting for Avast notifications is 20 seconds. If you do not want to see these popups, you can set the time duration to 0 seconds or enable Silent Mode in SettingsGeneral.
