How can I make anti virsus software trust an application I created?

Hi,

I develop software as a hobby and want to share it with other people. At the moment they can download it from my Google drive account, but:

Because almost nobody used the software, virusscanners either block downloading it or say you should not trust it.

I checked the software both locally and by downloading it from my Google drive and I am very sure it is safe to use. My problem: how can I make anti-virus tools trust brand new software solutions and avoid false positives?

Regards,

Rudolf

Please review Whitelist and False Positive info here
https://submit.symantec.com/whitelist/

Norton product offers users options to download/launch/run "trusted by user" unproven deemed unsafe items.

Hello Rudolf,

Since you are dealing with a number of people, who undoubtedly each have different security programs, there is no single fix that is going to help.

I suggest you upload the file to VirusTotal and then check the results.  Based upon that information, you may have to submit the file to a number of security companies for evaluation for white-listing.

For Norton, you can submit to https://submit.symantec.com/false_positive/

If other companies are involved, you will have to make a submission to each.

Hope that helps.
