While Sizzy is perfectly safe to use—as evidenced by thousands of our clients running Windows—Microsoft Defender flags the installer due to a delay in obtaining a signed certificate from Microsoft.

That said, we understand your concern and have taken steps to ensure that the application is safe and trustworthy.

VirusTotal recognizes Sizzy as safe

Until the time we obtain a certificate, you can check the VirusTotal analysis for Sizzy.

As you can see, Sizzy is recognized as safe by all security software including Avast, BitDefender, ESET, F-Secure, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, and Symantec.
