Kaspersky Antivirus offers a powerful malware-protection software with an impressive array of features. The features you can avail depend on the plan that you select. It could range from basic virus and malware protection to a complete security suite.

The user interface of Kaspersky is attractive and simple. Most functions are displayed as tiles on the main screen. You can conduct rapid or full scans and then review the results in a straightforward and concise way. You can also verify the health of your device (e.g. a green tick indicates you are secure) and receive recommendations for next steps.

The best Kaspersky features include a data leak detection system that monitors the dark web for personal data which is being sold (e.g. email addresses as well as credit card numbers and social security numbers) and a weak settings scanner that looks for settings that leave your device vulnerable to attack. Keyloggers cannot track your physical movements to find your login details. Another security tool is an onscreen keyboard which blocks keyloggers from tracking your physical movements. A free VPN is included with Kaspersky Internet Security subscriptions, although it’s limited to 300 MB per day.

Kaspersky Lab’s privacy practices can be a source of concern for users, even though the software is effective at keeping your device secure. 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. While the company denies these allegations, the controversy has hurt its reputation. To regain confidence, Kaspersky has started its Global Transparency Initiative to prove that it is committed to security and privacy.
