Kaspersky Antivirus Review

Kaspersky Antivirus is a powerful malware protection program that boasts an impressive array of features. The exact number of features offered is contingent upon the price plan you select, which can range from basic malware and virus protection to a complete security suite.

The user interface for Kaspersky is simple and visually appealing, with the majority of functions laid out as convenient tiles on the main screen. You can perform quick or full scans, and then check the results in an easy and concise way. You can also view your device’s status (e.g., a green checkmark means that you’re secure) and board software read suggestions for further actions.

Some of Kaspersky’s best features include a data leak detection system that checks the dark web for personal information that is for sale (e.g. email addresses credit card numbers, social security numbers) and a weak settings scanner that scans for configurations that could make your device vulnerable to attacks. Other security tools include a keyboard that is on screen that blocks keyloggers from tracking your physical strokes to uncover your login details, as well as the rescue disk for disinfecting a heavily compromised computer. Kaspersky Internet Security subscriptions include a free VPN, but it’s only 300MB per day.

While the software does a great job of ensuring your device is secure but some users are concerned about the privacy practices of Kaspersky Lab. The company is owned by Russian security firm Eugene Kaspersky and has been accused of collusion with the government, including during the conflict in Ukraine. The controversy has damaged reputation of the company even although it denies the allegations. Kaspersky’s Global Transparency Initiative was launched to restore trust and demonstrate its commitment to privacy and integrity.
