Welcome. Please uncheck relevant checkboxes in Kaspersky > Settings > notifications.

Any better after that?

If not, Please pass your mouse cursor over the Kaspersky tray icon and tell us the full, complete name and version number of your Kaspersky product.

Every time I turn on computer, Kaspersky (KPM) notification popup,:"Find sensitive docs & keep them safe". I don't have sensitive documents,. I'd like it to stop doing this. But how?

Hello @Raena,
Additional to @richbuff's post.
Thank you for posting this important issue.
Is the popup like this:

or similar? If it is, here's the history:

Popup is, to quote Kaspersky Technical Support: "a new feature of KPM. It appears once a month if the (KPM) Documents folder is empty. An “off” function unfortunately is not available."

  • The fact there is no OFF switch, as in "I have no docs I wish to store in the vault - switch popup OFF", is escalated, with Kaspersky experts. Has been for 6 months. The Experts have not provided any current feedback.

All Kaspersky software, requires OFF/IGNORE switch(s) for notifications/popups.

Until Kaspersky fix this, (I) created 2 .pdfs, (one will do the job), uploaded to KPM Documents folder:


Unwelcome popups - stopped✊🏽!

Best regards🙏🏽

Note: KPM = Kaspersky Password Manager.
