To be clear I have never installed Norton Antivirus software on my MacBook and now I have received three notifications via Chrome browser that my Norton antivirus has expired.

What does this mean and how do I stop it? I looked inside of Notifications in Chrome Browser and I have nothing enabled for Norton antivirus messages. Where are these messages coming from then?


My eyes missed it. Inside of Google Chrome notification I had a www.goodbiz.com type of site where I was receiving the notifications from. I removed it.

  • @IconDaemon there's no suggestion of malware in this case. Just accidentally allowed notifications from an undesirable website. – Nic Apr 9 '20 at 15:22
  • @Nic, yes, I believe that is what happened. – Daniel Apr 9 '20 at 16:15
