Kaspersky Antivirus offers a powerful malware-protection application that has an impressive set of features. The features you will get depend on the plan you select. It can be anything from basic protection against viruses and malware to a complete security suite.
The user interface for Kaspersky is clean and visually appealing, with most functions laid out in convenient tiles on the main screen. From there you can begin quick or full scans and review the results in a a clear and concise way. You can also determine the status of your device (e.g. A green tick means you are protected) and get recommendations for next steps.
Some of Kaspersky’s best features include a leak detection system that checks the dark web for personal data that is available for sale (e.g. email addresses credit card numbers, email addresses and social security numbers) and a weak settings scanner that searches for configurations that leave your device vulnerable to attack. Keyloggers can’t track your movements physically to find your login details. Another security tool is an onscreen keyboard, which prevents keyloggers tracking your physical movements. A free VPN is included with Kaspersky Internet Security subscriptions, though it’s limited to 300 MB per day.
While the software does a good job of ensuring your device is secure however, some users are concerned about the privacy practices of Kaspersky Lab. The company is owned and managed by the Russian security firm Eugene Kaspersky. It has been accused of working with the government during the war in Ukraine. The controversy has damaged reputation of the company, even when it denies the allegations. Kaspersky’s Global Transparency Initiative was launched to regain trust and prove its commitment to privacy and its independence.
