Hello frankejf and welcome to the Community!

If you don't mind, may I know why would you like to turn it off?

To disable the Data Theft protection, kindly follow the steps below. 

  1. Open the main console of your Trend Micro Security software. Do either of the following:
    • Double-click the Trend Micro  icon on your desktop.
    • Double-click the Trend Micro  icon on your system tray.
  2. Click the Privacy tab.


  3. Beside the Data Theft Prevention, click Configure.
  4. On the Introduction page, click OK.


  5. Drag the slider to OFF  to enable Data Theft Prevention.


  6. Type the information that you want to protect in the Enter data to protect field.


    • It is advised to enter at least 8 digits of your Credit Card number.
    • The fields are case-sensitive. Example: "ABC" is different from "abc".
  7. Click OK to save your settings.


I hope I was able to answer your question. Have a great day!
