We built a new version of our software, the file is signed but Windows SmartScreen still show this message:

 

Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.

What does SmartScreen require to not show this message?

Thank you

Hi,
Each time an application is run Windows 10 will check if it has a “good” reputation against their catalog of applications.

also in here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/intelligence/criteria#potentiall...

one of the reasons stated is: Poor industry reputation. your newly created application is safe and signed but SmartScreen servers haven't probably identified it as safe yet.

How do I dispute the detection of my program?
