How to manage Windows Security Tamper Protection feature on Windows 10 May 2019 Update

Can't change security settings using commands or want to add an extra layer of protection? Use this guide to manage the new Tamper Protection feature on Windows Security.
 

On Windows 10, Windows Security is an experience that includes the settings to manage all of the built-in security features, including Windows Defender Antivirus, Windows Firewall, online security, and more.

 

Starting with the May 2019 Update (version 1903), Windows 10 is introducing Tamper Protection, which is a new feature designed to protect the Windows Security app against unauthorized changes that are not made directly through the experience.

 

Although this is a welcome addition that adds an extra layer of protection on Windows 10, it can cause some problems when you need to manage security settings through another app or command line tools, such as PowerShell or Command Prompt.

 

Fortunately, whether you want to improve your system security, or you're required to manage security settings using another app, the updated version of Windows Security makes it simple to enable or disable the new Tamper Protection feature.

 

In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to enable and disable the Tamper Protection feature included with the Windows Security app starting with the May 2019 Update.

How to disable Tamper Protection on Windows Security

To disable the Tamper Protection feature on Windows 10, use these steps:

  1. Open Start.
  2. Search for Windows Security and click the top result to open the experience.
  3. Click on Virus & threat protection.
  4. Under the "Virus & threat protection" section, click the Manage settingsoption.

  5. Turn off the Tamper Protection toggle switch.

     

Once you complete the steps, you will be able to change the Windows Security settings using command lines or using any other app.
