    Which version of Windows 10 do you have? Is it the Creators Update (1703)? Sounds like it if you don't see 'Enhanced notifications' any more. Open the Windows Defender Security Centre and click the cogwheel icon at the bottom left corner, the option is there. Turn off 'Receive recent activity and scan results'.

    For the Anniversary Update (1607) and earlier, it's in Settings > Update & security > Windows Defender. Turn off 'Enhanced notifications'.

    .

    You're welcome.

    To tell the truth, I had it turned off before I upgraded to Creators so I'd not spotted that cogwheel either. Had to look hard to find it for you. Not exactly easy to spot, is it?
