What is Sideloading?

According to Microsoft, the Sideload apps setting is described as, "...typically used by companies or schools that need to install custom apps on managed devices without going through the Microsoft Store, or anyone else who needs to run apps from non-Microsoft sources. In this case, it's common for the organization to enforce a policy that disables the UWP apps setting." Learn more about enabling Sideloading for LastPass.
