Windows 10: Disabling Firewall notifications in 1809?

    Disabling Firewall notifications in 1809?


    I notice that after update to 1809 Windows resumed posting notifications about my Windows Firewall's being turned off. I tried several methods of disabling this notification found on the Net, including making changes under

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Notifications\Settings

    but it had no effect. Windows still issues these complaints. Is there a way to disable these notifications?

    Hey @AndreyT

    Have you checked in here?
    Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Open Windows Security
    Firewall & network protection > firewall settings > Manage notifications

    Is the firewall green like this btw ? :)

    In windows 10 1809 defender is posting notifications even after altering registry.
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Notifications\Settings\Windows.SystemToa st.SecurityAndMaintenance]
    "Enabled"=dword:00000000

    The registry did work for disabling firewall and defender notification on windows 10 1803.

    Any other method on windows 1809?

    Defender Notifications pop-up also gives you the option to see fewer notifications.
    Question: Why would you disable Firewall. Just curious! Would MS update not re-enable it for security purposes?

    Are the notifications warning you your Firewall is turned OFF or poor choices of sites that your visiting?

    I haven't tested, but you might see if turning off messages for "Network firewall" and/or "Internet security settings" may help with this.

    I agree with Shawn, there are various options one could try - my setting above worked as both Defender and Windows firewall are turned off. I just kept getting the error that my PC is at risk etc - even tho' Kaspersky and Comodo were running fine..
