Windows 10: Windows defender and Chrome preferences submit

    Windows defender and Chrome preferences submit

    Hi all!

    I don't know why but my Windows Defender insists to submit a file named Preferences located normally at C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default at every login, reboot, and time to time...

    Of course I deny it. Why on Earth should I submit my Chrome preference config file to Microsoft? The WD don't catch any threat anyway and its behavior seems to suspicious and boring.

    Any clue?

    Have you place a exception for that folder.

    No, I never touched that before. Should I?

    Ok, so I have to consider a new feature, as it just started with 1709 build 16299.19.
    Thank you!
