I want to remove
by Wise, 2021-12-01

Using the extension in standalone mode on my mac because WSA is useless on MacOS. Despite the keycode being registered with my carbonite/webroot account, the extension sends a notification dozens of times per day asking me to create an account. There is no way to disable notifications from the extension, and the notification itself isn't actionable (e.g. you can't click on it to load the place to even register). It's insanely annoying and support doesn't care that it is doing this.
