Kaspersky Antivirus Review
Kaspersky’s antivirus software has excellent malware detection rates. Its extra security features, including parental controls, file shredding, backups, as well as a VPN and secure browser are also an excellent addition. The software’s UI isn’t easy to navigate, especially at first. After a short initial setup, the interface becomes user-friendly. There are many options to personalize Kaspersky according to your personal preferences. Additionally, the Timeline and Notification Center located at the bottom of “Home” allows you to manage important functions without leaving the main screen.
The reputation of the company was damaged when it was accused of cooperating with the Russian government in 2017 and some governments had banned its software. Although that accusation wasn’t confirmed however, the company has worked to regain its image and launched its Global Transparency initiative so users can get more information about its source code as well as the rules for detecting threats and data collection procedures.
All Kaspersky subscriptions offer real-time protection for Windows, Mac, and Android devices. Some plans also come with an antivirus program specifically designed for iOS that provides automatic scanning and on-demand searches for settings, apps, and images. Some of the premium plans (Internet Security and Total Security) add other essential features, such as an app locker that allows you to store and showing your private apps and parental controls.
