If you do not want the mobile device user to be distracted by Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android notifications, you can disable certain notifications.

The Kaspersky Endpoint Security uses the following tools to display the device protection status:

  • Protection status notification. This notification is pinned to the notification bar. Protection status notification cannot be removed. The notification displays the device protection status (for example, ) and number of issues, if any. You can tap the device protection status and see the list issues in the app.
  • App notifications. These notifications inform the device user about the application (for example, threat detection).
  • Pop-up messages. Pop-up messages require action from the device user (for example, action to take when a threat is detected).

All Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android notifications are enabled by default.

On Android 13, the device user should grant permission to send notifications during the Initial Configuration Wizard or later.

An Android device user can disable all notifications from Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android in the settings on the notification bar. If notifications are disabled, the user does not monitor the operation of the app and can ignore important information (for example, information about failures during device synchronization with Kaspersky Security Center). In this case, to find out the app operating status, the user must open Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android.

To configure the display of notifications about the operation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android:

  1. In the console tree, in the Managed devices folder, select the administration group to which the Android devices belong.
  2. In the workspace of the group, select the Policies tab.
  3. Open the policy properties window by double-clicking any column.
  4. In the policy Properties window, select the Additional section.
  5. In the App notifications section, click the Configure button.

    The Device notification settings window opens.

  6. Select the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android issues that you want to hide on the user's mobile device and click the OK button.

    The Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android will not display issues in the protection status notification. The Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android will continue to display protection status notification and app notifications.

    Certain Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android issues are mandatory and impossible to disable (such as issues about license expiration).

  7. To hide all notifications and pop-up messages, select the Disable notifications and pop-ups when app is background mode.

    Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android will display the protection status notification only. The notification displays device protection status (for example, ) and number of issues. Also the app display notifications when user is working with the app (the user updates anti-virus databases manually, for example).

    Kaspersky experts recommended that you enable notifications and pop-up messages. If you disable notifications and pop-up messages when the app is in background mode, the app will not warn users about threats in real time. Mobile device users can learn about the device protection status only when they open the app.

  8. Click the Apply button to save the changes you have made.

Mobile device settings are configured after the next device synchronization with the Kaspersky Security Center. The Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android notifications that you disable will not be displayed on the user's mobile device.
