  • Hi,

    This security warning appears when a program attempts to access your contact information in the Outlook Address Book. There is no option to increase the time limit as your required. However, in many cases, you can prevent these security warnings by installing antivirus software and making sure that it is updated regularly.

    You can also change the Programmatic Access Security setting in Outlook to get rid of the security message. 

    See the following article for more details:

    Hope this helps.

  • Thank you for replying. I'm actually using a legitimate program which access outlook email address, hence the pop up. Is there a way to make an exception for that tool so that whenever we access a certain software,  the  pop up won't show up in Outlook notifications ?

  • Hi,

    I'm afraid there is no option available to make an exception of the security warning. You may consider to try my previous suggestion to install a antivirus software, thus your Outlook application will be protected from malware and you can get rid of the warning.
