In a support document, Microsoft explained: “Potentially unwanted applications (PUA) are a category of software that can cause your device to run slowly, display unexpected ads, or at worst, install other software which may be more harmful or annoying. PUA isn’t malware, but it is software that you often don’t need and probably don’t want.
“In the Windows 10 May 2020 Update we added Potentially Unwanted App blocking for everyone running Windows 10, but customers who wanted to use it still had to turn it on. Starting in early August 2021 we’ll begin turning it on by default to make it easier for you to keep your systems performing at their best.”
While the feature brings with it a welcome security boost, Windows Latest claims there is a chance legitimate apps could end up being flagged as unwanted.
If that’s the case, you’ll be able to disable the feature in the Settings menu. To do this, first open the Start Menu and then search for Settings.
