Kaspersky’s antivirus software has excellent malware detection rates. Its additional security features, like parental controls, file shredding and backups, as well as a VPN and a secure browser are also a great addition. The software’s UI is a bit difficult to navigate, particularly initially. After a brief initial installation, the interface is user-friendly. There are also many options to personalize Kaspersky according to your personal preferences. Plus the Timeline and Notification Center at the bottom of the “Home” screen make it simple to manage important functions without leaving the main screen.
The image of the company was tarnished when it was accused in 2017 of working with the Russian government, and some countries have banned its software. The company has worked to regain its image, even though the allegations were not proven. It has launched its Global Transparency Initiative so that users could learn more about its code security, threat detection and the data collection processes.
All Kaspersky subscriptions provide real-time security on Windows, Mac and Android devices. Some plans also include an antivirus application specifically designed for iOS, which features automatic scanning and instant scans for apps, settings, 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.
