  3. Click Save.

    ⇒ From now on, application installations are allowed only to the specified Trusted installers and to applications from the initial list. The initial list is not updated in real time, which means that if an application from the initial list is updated by a non-trusted installer, such an application will be forbidden (its hash value changes).
