Quickly enable Windows 10’s built-in network and PUA protection!

A simple command in PowerShell! 

Windows 10 has built-in networking and PUA protection.

The network protection prevents you from connecting to known malicious domains, while the PUA protection warns you before installing potentially unwanted applications.

In either case, to enable it, you’ll want to enter the following command(s) into PowerShell (as admin).

Enabling Protection

Go to start > Type “PowerShell” > Right click on “Windows PowerShell” and choose “Run as administrator” and confirm to run it.

Enabling PUA protection

Copy-paste or type the following command into PowerShell and hit enter:

Set-MpPreference -PUAProtection Enabled

Enabling network protection

Copy-paste or type the following command into PowerShell and hit enter:

Set-MpPreference -EnableNetworkProtection Enabled

Reboot

You need to reboot for the changes to take effect.

That’s all there is to it! :3
