I understand that you have an HP Pavilion 15 series notebook. I read that in the HP Support Assistant, under Internet and Security and there is a warning symbol on Network Access Protection as its showing as "off". Not worry, I'll do my best to help you.

Hello Mahim – Welcome to Microsoft Answers Community.

What is Network Access Protection?
Network Access Protection or NAP is a network platform which Administrators
apply on a corporate (or home) network. Once your PC is connected to a 
network that uses NAP, this NAP will check your machine for this: 

A) Does the PC have required software and network?
B) Is the software up-to-date?

As it is performing this check, you will be running under limitation (due to the data
information collection about the computer’s identity) on the network. 
However, once everything is fine, you will get full network access.

Q: Do I need NAP?

A: Yes, if you are connected to a corporate network then you'll need it. But if you
are a regular PC user, then you don't need this, it becomes pretty useless. However,
I provided the steps below for you, so you can enable it.

 

If this is a home used laptop then I think there is no reason to worry about it. Because the remaining part would be handled by the Win10 firewall or the antivirus handled in your laptop. Let me know is everything else is fine and the laptop is connected to the internet without any issues. 

 

Cheers! 🙂
