This article describes steps to enable or disable the Windows Security app Account protection notifications in Windows 11.
Windows Security, by default, will send notifications with critical information about the health and Security of your device.
The Windows Security app will notify users whenever there are account issues with Windows Hello or Dynamic lock.
Users will typically receive account protection notifications when conditions such as inadequate lighting make it difficult for Windows Hello to recognize them or their mobile device is not being found to activate the Device lock.
If you constantly receive notifications from faulty Windows Hello and Dynamic Lock features and don’t want to keep receiving these, you can turn them off.
On the other hand, if you want to be aware of what’s happening with your computer, turn it on.
Below is how to do that with Windows Security app in Windows 11.
