Microsoft’s integrated antivirus program known as Windows Security now, does not require the purchase of a subscription. It’s also completely free. The product is incredibly well-regarded by the top antivirus testing labs and provides solid protection against malware without affecting system performance. It also offers a variety of useful additional features, like the protection against ransomware as well as a password manager. It’s missing some of the most important features that are found in premium antivirus suites and isn’t the most user-friendly.

The virus and threat protection module includes the usual quick scans full scans, custom scans, as well as an offline scan mode that’s designed to get rid of even the most difficult of threats. The firewall and network protection module is fairly simple to use, even though it’s not as robust than its competitors. The biggest drawback, however, is that it only works on Windows devices, so if you’re looking to protect the security of a Mac or Android phone, you’ll have to look for a different option.

Family options include parental controls and the capability to monitor the health of the devices in your family. There’s a password manager that is hidden in the Edge browser, and it can sync to your other devices. The drawback is that you don’t control the features using the app and instead utilize a browser to manage the features.

In contrast to other antivirus programs it doesn’t connect to the Windows kernel, a move that could open up new attack opportunities for black hats, and could possibly compromise your operating system. In addition, it offers the best behavioural detection and protects users from downloading malicious files.
