A toast notification is displayed when mining starts. I don't personally use the product, but I have had requests for it. Also in the next update I'll add a enable/disable option for mobile users, and a separate Mobile CPU Usage option.

I've not heard of it being illegal, do you have a source for this? I'd like to include it for reference. I'm also not sure how this would be a risk for identity theft. I also plan on adding JSE integration into this plugin for those that want to go a more publicized option.

Also I'm running Norton as well, and do not get a notification for this. Can anyone else replicate this?
