windows defender blocking my app

Florence Wong 26 Reputation points


I have created a very simple .exe using python and py2exe that simply prints "hello" to console. However, when uploaded to sharepoint and redownloaded, I get the following warning. If I wanted to share this with others in my organization, the same thing occurs. Is it possible to avoid this warning? I am wondering if its because I/ my organization is not a reqistered publisher?

    In general , Windows defender SmartScreen will block us from opening some apps if they come from an unknown place or are created by an unknown publisher.

    We could disable Windows Defender SmartScreen to solve the problem.

    1.Launch Windows Defender Security Center from your Start menu, desktop, or taskbar.
    2.Click the App and browser control button on the left side of the window.
    3.Click Off in the Check apps and files section.
    4.Click Off in the SmartScreen for Microsoft Edge section.
    5.Click Off in the SmartScreen for Windows Store apps section.
