Windows 10 SmartScreen
Windows SmartScreen keeps malware off the PC by checking web links and downloads against lists of known unsafe web sites and files stored by Microsoft and maintained by all the major antivirus and computer security firms. The default level is to alert the user that the file could be unsafe before he’s allowed to run it. The second option will turn off Windows SmartScreen.

SmartScreen is an extremely helpful and useful security feature but, alas, it’s all too easy for a PC user to deactivate it. If somebody uses the Edge web browser, and opens Settings, then Advanced Settings, or opens the Privacy options in the Settings app, she will see switches which can be used to quickly deactivate SmartScreen.
