Some antivirus may point the Plagius as a virus or as a suspect file. But this is clearly false-positive. This usually occurs for two reasons:

  • The Plagius is little-known, does not exist in the database of trusted programs of security companies, so they mark everything they do not know as suspicious.
  • Other antiviruses work based on behavior detection, as the Plagius makes several requests on the internet, this behavior can be eventually interpreted as suspicious.

If an antivirus message appears at the time of the download, you must force the download, each antivirus has a different option for this. We recommend inserting the Plagius in the exception list (white list) of your antivirus, or even disable the antivirus to use the Plagius.

:!: Even if the antivirus does not block the Plagius download, some antivirus may interfere with the operation of the program. They may block access to the internet, or directly affect the functioning of the Plagius. So we recommend disabling the antivirus whenever the Plagius appear to not work properly.
