Snap does not install without --dangerous flag

I got this error when installing obsidian using snap on ubuntu.

error: cannot find signatures with metadata for snap "obsidian_0.10.1_amd64.snap"

I got this solution after a search that --dangerous flag was required.

I wanted to know if there are any plans to change this?

Steps to reproduce

download snap file and install using cmd - sudo snap install obsidian_0.10.1_amd64.snap


  • Operating system: ubuntu 20.10
  • Obsidian version: 0.10.1

you have to use --dangerous for all the snaps that are not sourced throught the snapstore. We have no short term plans to submit the app to the snapstore.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have installed it.
