    (Windows Security) Account Protection Notifications turning itself off


    I am running Windows 21H1 Pro with 2021-08 Cumulative Updates installed on two machines.
    On both I log in with my Microsoft Account.
    The Account protection notifications from Windows Security is turning itself off.
    Is anyone having the same problem as me?

    Hidden inside Windows Security, under Virus & threat protection tab, there is a link to open Virus & threat protection settings page, which in turn shows a link to Notifications page. On Notifications page itself there is an Account protection notifications with a slider (on/off) button for Get account protection notifications and square check boxes for Problems with Windows Hello and Problems with Dynamic lock.

    I turn on Get account protection notification and close Windows Security. When I reopen Windows Security the option is once again turned off. This happens on both machines.
