A Review of Windows Defender

If you’re looking to save money and have easy-to-use security, you won’t compare to the security suite built into Windows 10 and 11. It’s also referred to as Windows Security or Microsoft Defender and it comes with antivirus protection and an firewall, device monitoring and kid protection (you can control what your children can do online) and a host of other features.

In addition to the standard malware detection, neutralization and prevention capabilities, it also comes with a password manager as well as anti-phishing tools. Its firewall is able to monitor both outbound and inbound connections, including Wi-Fi networks. It also has an advanced menu that lets you view specific information about suspicious connections, which is an important feature.

In our tests, the software did a good job blocking most phishing websites and dangerous downloads. Its reputation-based security system utilizes a massive database to assign app and website reputation scores. Programs that have low scores are automatically filtered out. It also offers security against exploits, which guards against attacks attempting to alter the settings of your computer.

It’s pretty good in general however, it doesn’t offer the malware detection rates that standalone competitors like Norton and Bitdefender do. And while it does include a password manager, it doesn’t offer other essential features such as an optimizer for your PC or a VPN. The support options for customers are extensive. There’s a vast community with extensive FAQs, forums, and multiple ways to contact an expert tech support via live chat or email.
