Have you just started your journey onboard the Microsoft Access 2013 application? Well, you will find this article handy as it has a compilation of the simple steps that you can use to view or change the add-in security settings in the Microsoft Access 2013 application. Security settings in the installed add-ins in your Windows 7-based PC allow you to enhance or decrease the safety coverage of the programs and thereby prevent risks to the application and your saved data. Even if you have never done any customization in the application, you can easily complete this task as the steps are simple and just require you to do a few tweaks here and there.

The easy step solution to the above issue is as:

  1. Open Microsoft Access and then open any Access file.
  2. Click on the ‘File’ tab and then click ‘Options’
  3. Click ‘Trust Center’ in the left pane and click ‘Trust Center Settings’
  4. Click ‘Add-ins’ in the left pane and select the options that you want. You can either go for:
  5. ‘Require Application Add-ins to be signed by Trusted Publisher’


  1. ‘Disable notification for unsigned add-ins’ – This check box is available only if you select the ‘Require Application Extensions to be signed by Trusted Publisher’ check box.


  1. ‘Disable all Application Add-ins’
  2. Click ‘OK’ and then click ‘OK’ again
  3. This setting takes effect only after you exit and restart your Microsoft Office program.
