What does the message mean?

The Windows Defender SmartScreen is a way for Microsoft to alert you that an app seems suspicious. In our case, this message is a false-positive. According to Microsoft documentation, once enough people have installed this release of Spin Equity, and established the 'reputation' of the program, Microsoft will turn this message off for future installations.
