    You can configure it from Windows Security > Virus & threat protection > Virus & threat protection settings > Manage settings > Turn On/Off Tamper Protection.

    To configure with registry, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Features.

    Take ownership of Features key first.

    Create/set TamperProtection DWORD to 0 to disable Tamper Protection or 5 to enable Tamper Protection.

    Hope this helps!

    You could change the tamper protection setting as below:

    In the search box on the taskbar, type Windows Security and then select Windows Security in the list of results.

    In Windows Security, select Virus & threat protection and then under Virus & threat protection settings, select Manage settings.

    Change the Tamper Protection setting to On or Off.

    Note: Tamper Protection is turned on by default. If you turn off Tamper Protection, you will see a yellow warning in the Windows Security app under Virus & threat protection.
    Also, If the Tamper Protection setting is On, you won't be able to turn off the Microsoft Defender Antivirus service by using the DisableAntiSpyware group policy key.

    Hope above information can help you.
