    How to Enable or Disable Bypassing SmartScreen Prompts for Sites in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10


    Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

    SmartScreen Filter is a feature in Microsoft Edge that helps detect phishing websites. SmartScreen Filter can also help protect you from downloading or installing malware (malicious software). SmartScreen Filter helps to protect you in three ways:
    • As you browse the web, it analyses webpages and determines if they have any characteristics that might be suspicious. If it finds suspicious webpages, SmartScreen will display a message giving you an opportunity to provide feedback and advising you to proceed with caution.
    • SmartScreen Filter checks the sites you visit against a dynamic list of reported phishing sites and malicious software sites. If it finds a match, SmartScreen Filter will show you a warning notifying you that the site has been blocked for your safety.
    • SmartScreen Filter checks files that you download from the web against a list of reported malicious software sites and programs known to be unsafe. If it finds a match, SmartScreen Filter will warn you that the download has been blocked for your safety. SmartScreen Filter also checks the files that you download against a list of files that are well known and downloaded by many Microsoft Edge users. If the file that you're downloading isn't on that list, SmartScreen Filter will warn you.
    By default, Windows Defender SmartScreen will allow you to "Disregard and continue" in warnings about potentially malicious websites in Microsoft Edge.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable bypassing Windows Defender SmartScreen warnings about potentially malicious websites in Microsoft Edge for all users in Windows 10.

    *Warning You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable bypassing Windows Defender SmartScreen warnings for sites.

  4. Enable or Disable Bypassing SmartScreen for Sites in Microsoft Edge

    I cannot disable Windows SmartScreen

    Hi,

    Disabling Windows SmartScreen in updated Windows versions was already moved to Windows Defender Security Center. It's a new feature in Windows 10 Creators Update. That might be the reason why it is not showing in the Control Panel. For us to disable the
    Windows SmartScreen, please follow these steps:

    • Click on Start.
    • Type Windows Defender Security Center.
    • Press Enter.
    • Click on App & browser control.
    • You have 3 options:
    • If you will disable it, it will show you a warning message.

    Let us know if you have other concerns.
