Microsoft Defender Antivirus
Antivirus software is a huge business, and advertisements are constantly thrown in our faces and in our screens. However, did you know that all Windows 10 & 11 PCs come with built-in antivirus? Microsoft Defender comes installed on all PCs, and most professionals agree that it does a very good job of protecting from malicious software. It also has options for identity monitoring (not protection! Go to credit bureaus for that). The other main appeal of Microsoft Defender is that it’s free. Other antivirus software such as McAfee and Norton may be a bit more stringent in catching malware, but they are also pricey.
