This app has been blocked by your system administrator. Contact your system administrator

Hi Guys

I am trying to install brave browser in my work laptop and I get a “This app has been blocked by your system administrator. Contact your system administrator” when I try the BraveBrowserSetup. I have administrator rights and I have installed a hell lot of other softwares without this issue.

How do I install brave now? Any suggestions?

The following is a good example of how Brave Support requests that you make a report:

That mean ur it manager is blocking all kind of package instalation. Not brave issue

Description of the issue:

  1. Download the 64 bit installation file of Brave.
  2. Double click on the installation file.
  3. A pop up appears “This app has been blocked by your system administrator. Contact your system administrator”.

As I said, I have installed a lot of other browsers and database adminstration tools already. The issue is only with brave installation file.

Update:

From the event viewer, I have found out that Microsoft app locker is blocking it from installation.
