Norton anti-virus message keeps popping up



Since I recently installed Norton Anti-Virus (free with my Comcast subscription), I have started getting the following alert which I've refused to answer.  It eventually goes away after a minute, but it returns again within 5-10 min.  The message states :  "Computer is attempting to access rapportd on your computer.  Do you want to allow?".  I'm using a macbook pro with Mojave 10.14.5 and Safari 12.1.1.  Any clues if this is really another computer or is this alert ok to allow next time it pops up?
