NI Software Incorrectly Prompts Antivirus Warning

Updated Jun 18, 2020

Issue Details

I just installed NI software, and when I use it, my Avast or AVG antivirus software popped up this alert about passwords in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.


This is an incorrect alarm from the antivirus software. NI software is not trying to access your passwords. NI is aware of this issue, and we are working to resolve this incorrect flagging of NI software.

To resolve the issue on your computer, select either option -- Block App or Allow App -- and you will no longer see this alert. Either selection will not affect the functionality of your NI Software.
