windows defender issues? & other AV issues?

Most software I've seen does ask users to whitelist their app in any 
anti-virus software the user has.

I don't think LC could ask for exclusions for any app it builds, it's a 
development platform. Anyone could take the free version, write some 
malware, and distribute it. That would be like asking AV software to 
exclude any app written in Java.

The responsibility would probably be on you, the app developer, to get an 
exclusion for your particular app. I don't know much about how Defender 
works, but getting a signing certificate from MS may be one way to 
legitimize the app.
