I've been recently having so many problems with SmartScreen inside Edge Insider browser, yet I rather keep it turned on, find and report the problems, and hope they get fixed (instead of turning it off and forgetting about it), to help the development of this browser,

 

so here is one of them, a totally safe software download is marked as unsafe again.

  • At first step, I downloaded this program that I needed from a website that I've been using to download software for years and I rather not mention it here. I go on and click on "keep" because obviously I don't want to delete it.

  • Here is the Second step, It tells me that this app is not commonly downloaded (which I don't care and it shouldn't be important at all, there are billions of useful apps and software that are very rarely downloaded and that doesn't make them any less trustworthy or safe.
  • then it tells me this app is not signed by it's publisher which deserve a fair warning, so first I click on "report this app as safe" and then I go ahead and click on "keep anyway" because again I want it and need to use it.

  • This is the Third step and where the main problem is, when I selected "report this app as safe", it took me to this website and as you can see it only gives me 2 options neither of which are about reporting an app as safe but they are both trying to report that app as UNSAFE instead.
  • so yes the procedure implemented in Edge insider browser needs to change to Actually let people report an app as safe. in that page, there needs to be a 3rd option for it.

p.s, don't bother clicking on that page, you will get this error

Spoiler
Your request cannot be completed at this time. Please try again later.

because you must only be redirected to that page by your browser.

 

hope developers pay the required attention to this issue.

Thanks
