I am testing an app that is in beta status and therefore not known to Windows Defender. When I start it I get the "Windows Protected your PC" message.
In Defender settings I can disable "Check Apps and Files" and I get a warning I can dismiss and start the app.
I read some old posts in this forum, but I didn't find the info conclusive or current.
I am looking for current "Best Practices" regarding Windows Defender with Bitdefender installed.
