Kaspersky’s anti-virus program gets good malware detection rates, and its additional security features (parental controls files shredding, backups as well as a password manager and the ability to use a VPN, a secure web browser and much more) are a welcome addition to the other top products we’ve been testing. However, the program’s UI has an apprehension curve and can be difficult to navigate through, especially when you first install it. After a short initial setup, the interface becomes user-friendly. There are numerous customization options to customize Kaspersky according to your personal preferences. Plus the Timeline and Notification how to choose malware protection Center located at the bottom of „Home“ allows you to manage important tasks without leaving the main screen.

The reputation of the company was tarnished when it was accused of collusion with the Russian government in 2017 and some governments banned its software. The company has been working to restore its reputation, despite the fact that the accusation was not proven. It launched its Global Transparency Initiative so that users could learn more about its software, threat detection rules and data collection methods.

All Kaspersky subscriptions come with real-time protection on Windows, Mac and Android devices. Certain plans come with an iOS antivirus application that offers automated scanning as well as scans on demand for apps, settings and photos. Certain premium plans (Internet Security and Total Security) add other important features, including an app locker for storing and showing your private apps and parental controls.
