Some apps will use your computer to mine for crypto in the background. Take Norton Antivirus, for example. It adds crypto mining to your device. Thus, it’s taking a cut of the earnings while you’re browsing the web.
Chad from Lexington, Kentucky wants to do something about this. He doesn’t like the fact that Norton users have to opt into the miner before using the program.
Once you allow Norton to run the miner on your computer, it’s hard to opt out of the function.
You can disable the mining — but you can’t remove the module completely.
Plus, Norton takes complete control of the setting’s thresholds.
