Kaspersky Antivirus offers a powerful malware-protection tool that comes with an impressive array of features. The specific set of features offered depends on the price plan you select which can range from basic virus and malware protection to a comprehensive security suite.
The user interface of Kaspersky is appealing and clear. The majority of functions are displayed as tiles on the main screen. From there you can begin fast or full scans and view the results in a a clear and concise way. You can also look up your device’s status (e.g. If you see a green checkmark indicates that you’re protected) and look up recommendations for what you can do next.
The best Kaspersky features include a leak detection system that scans the dark web for personal data that is available for sale (e.g., email addresses credit card numbers, social security numbers) and a weak settings scanner which scans for settings that leave your device vulnerable to attacks. Other security tools include a keyboard on screen that stops keyloggers from tracking your physical movements to discover the login details of your account and a rescue disk for disinfecting the computer that is most vulnerable to attack. A free VPN is included with Kaspersky Internet Security subscriptions, although it’s limited to 300 MB per day.
While the software does a great job of protecting your device however, some users are concerned about the privacy practices of Kaspersky Lab. The company is owned and operated by the Russian security firm Eugene Kaspersky. It has been accused of collaborating with the government during the war in Ukraine. The scandal has damaged reputation of the company even although it denies all allegations. Kaspersky’s Global Transparency Initiative was launched to regain trust and prove its commitment to privacy and integrity.
