Some security applications have a special Play/Game mode. If the game mode is enabled then the user won’t receive any notifications on full screen.

After providing those names, the gaming mode will mute the notifications whenever you run those applications.
The user also gets upgrade notifications, if he has the free version. In freeware, you may also get several ads. In some apps, you can open the notification tab and disable the upgrade pop-up. But in some security programs, those pop-ups only stop when the user purchases the premium subscription.
