Windows is telling me i have to cancel the S mode

I am trying play a game Big Fish I bought it and joined but I can't download it. How bad would that be to cancel the Smode? or is there any other way to download games without doing that?

Windows 11 in S mode is designed for security and performance, exclusively running apps from the Microsoft Store. If you want to install an app that isn't available in the Microsoft Store, you'll need to switch out of S mode.
On your PC running Windows 11 in S mode, open Settings > System > Activation.

But I was told not to switch cause if I do I can't get it back. Isn't there another way and how bad is it if i switch?

Switching out of S mode is one-way. If you make the switch, you won't be able to go back to Windows 10 or Windows 11 in S mode. There's no charge to switch out of S mode.
However, turning off S mode doesn't have a downside if you need to use that software. Apps like Defender will continue to run just fine. So will any program you was installed from the Microsoft store while in S mode

So it's okay to switch? Will I still have hacking, virus protection and security?
