How do I stop Kaspersky from prompting me that I have switched the webcam off.

I have turned of my webcam as I don't want any apps to use it. I only want to use it for person communication within my family. Since turning it off I am constantly prompted by Kaspersky that I have switched the webcam off. How do I stop Kaspersky from doing this other than uninstalling Kaspersky. Which I will if I can resolve the problem. Not a Kaspersky fan and will go back to McAfee when this subscription ends.

Hello Ashanta1,


Show notification when the webcam is in use by an application for which webcam access is allowed
If this check box is selected, Kaspersky Total Security displays a notification when an application for which access is allowed is using the webcam.
  • In the notification window, you can edit the settings of application access to the webcam or choose not to receive any further notifications.
  • If this check box is cleared, the notification is not displayed.
This check box is available if the Block access to webcam for all applications check box is cleared.
