  • Hi Szilard,

    You can configure this in the following GPO:
    Computer Configuration, Policies, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Windows Firewall with Advanced Security, Windows Firewall with Advanced Security: Windows Firewall Properties.

    Here you can configure the notifications for each profile using Settings, Customize, Firewall settings, Display a notification.

    Hope this helps.


    Kind regards,

    Matthijs

  • Hi Szilard,

    You could disable Windows firewall notifications with clearing the Display a notification when Windows Firewall blocks a program check box.

    You could also use command to achieve your goal.

    To disable notifications, type the following at the command prompt, and press ENTER:

    netsh firewall set notifications mode = disable profile = profile

    For more information, you could refer to the article below.

  • Hi Szilard,

    You could disable display a notification under Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.

    1. Open Windows Firewall with Advances Security under group policy management
    2. In the details pane, in the Overview section, click Windows Firewall Properties.
    3. For each network location type (Domain, Private, Public), perform the following steps.
      1. Click the tab that corresponds to the network location type.
      2. Under Settings, click Customize.
      3. Under Firewall settings, change Display a notification to No.
      4. Under Rule merging, change Apply local firewall rules to No.
      5. Although a connection security rule is not a firewall setting, you can also use this tab to prohibit locally defined connection security rules if you are planning to deploy IPsec rules as part of a server or domain isolation environment. Under Rule merging, change Apply local connection security rules to No.
      6. Click OK twice.

    For more information, you could refer to these articles below.
