Avast detects Joplin Web Clipper as unreputed addon

Is there a way to resolve this from Joplin’s side or is this primarily dependent on Avast?

[PS: This is my first post here. Joplin is the most viable note taking app for anyone attempting to switch from OneNote and Evernote to an opensource alternative. I thank the devs for building and maintaining this. I hope Joplin just keeps improving.]

Any chance you report them this as a false positive?

I’ll check if that’s possible.

Thanks, if you get any feedback please let us know.

But I’m starting to wonder why the desktop apps and now the clipper are detected as malware. Maybe it’s the way the apps work with encrypted data or something that trigger them.

In my case, the desktop app works fine. The clipper thing, I just got hit by a pop-up today from Avast. You might want to contact the anti-malware software vendors, and see if they have any insight.

I’ve reported it to Avast now, let’s see what they say.
