What’s a good method of sharing VB projects with friends/family without Chrome, etc. blocking it as a potential virus?

I’m working on a game recently, and every time I try to send a copy of the exe to a friend or family member, they get nothing but hassles from their browser and/or OS that it’s probably a virus. The file is either blocked from downloading altogether, or prevented from running.

While I completely understand the need for these safety measures, I’m wondering what the best work-arounds are for legitimate developers to share temporary builds of their projects for testing purposes. Filedropper.com seems to work best at this point. You don’t even need to sign up or login to use it. But some browsers/machines still complain when friends try to test my latest builds. I’m sure there are other options I haven’t thought of.
