SmartScreen Windows Defender alert

Describe the bug

When I have tried to open de .exe file, Windows Defender blocks the execution. It is easy to continue but it is neccesary to click on more information and select execute.

To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. Download .exe
    1. Execute .exe

Expected behavior

Windows Defender blocks the execution of the executable.

Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • OS: Windows 10 LTSC 1809
  • Device: Desktop computer
  • Version: 0.18.59

Additional context

Can confirm this behaviour with version 0.24.0 on Win10Pro, update 21H2.

This warning shows because Microsoft doesn’t know that software.
So its not necessarily a bad thing. Just unknown to Windows.
Anytype could do a few things to change that, but since you can skip it for now its not a high priority problem I think.

If you are interested in the “how?” and “why?”
