Code signing cert reputation transfer to new cert (same app) to avoid smartscreen trigger RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - our application/installer (and associated standard code signing certificate from a well known CA) had built up reputation and was not flagged by smartscreen. Now that the original cert is expiring and we've applied a new code signing cert to the same application/installer, smartscreen is triggering warnings.

    Is it possible to transfer the reputation from the old cert to the new one to avoid the smartscreen warnings?

    It is not a universal windows app, and we do not have an EV certificate. However, reputation had been built and the only change is using a new cert to replace the expired one.

    Thank you!
