Disable Defender (Toast) Notifications

Today I’ve seen someone asking how to disable the toast notifications. Microsoft released documentation on how to configure it using a GPO. But, what if u are managing Windows Endpoints via Intune / Endpoint Manager? Because it was not clear which notifications they where talking about i’ll show you two different notification settings!

Disable Enhanced Notifications

Use this policy if you want Windows Defender Security Center to only display notifications which are considered critical. If you disable or do not configure this setting, Windows Defender Security Center will display critical and non-critical notifications to users.

  1. Create a new Configuration Profile

2. Pick Windows 10 and later as platform and Settings catalog as profile type.

3. Give your Configuration Profile a name. Description is optional.

4. Click Add settings.

5. Click Windows Defender Security Center and select Disable Enhanced Notifications

6. Enable the setting. This disables the non-critical notifications on the endpoints.

7. Assign the policy to a Azure AD Group and click Create.
