I get this banner when the laptop wakes from sleep. If BD were serious about doing stuff in the background, it wouldn't throw up a banner to say so! How do I silence this?
Do you have a flash drive, USB drive connected? Confirm if you have Scan flash drives set to Ask every time, or Disabled. If it's set to Autoscan, it will do just that.
From the left side of the main Dashboard, Protection go to Antivirus/Open settings/Scan flash drives.

Yes, I do have an SD card in the slot. I want it scanned, but I do not want to see any banner. I have Scan Flash Drives set to Autoscan.
Is there no way to scan the media without any notification?
"Is there no way to scan the media without any notification?"
There is no way to turn those notifications off.
Everytime you insert a flash drive into your device, a pop-up notification "New device detected" will show up.
But, you could try the following:
Open your Bitdefender program, go to Utilities -> Profiles -> Settings and enable/activate any of these 2 profiles: Work Profile or Game Profile, because:
-- When Work Profile is enabled/activated:
- All Bitdefender alerts and pop-ups are disabled
- Automatic Update is postponed
- Scheduled scans are postponed
- Search Advisor is disabled
- Special offers notifications are disabled
-- When Game Profile is enabled/activated:
Also, kindly see if this post helps.
Disabling the whole ability to scan flash drives is terrible "solution." I'm sure most tech-savvy users simply have Bitdefender's "Scan flash drives" disabled because of the lack of useful options. I wouldn't mind Bitdefender scanning my flash drives, as I do occasionally use them in other systems. But since the options can't be changed, i.e., I can't create exclusions or just have the app WARN ME about a PUP or other detection on the flash drive, then the entire flash drive scanning feature is worthless. I'm IT, so I have some powerful anti-virus tools on the flash drive and port-scanning apps, etc. The last thing I want your AV software to do is arbitrarily delete my files that are on the drive for a reason. Would it be that difficult to implement the SAME options for scanning USB devices that already exist for scanning the computer itself? I think not.
