Kaspersky Antivirus Review
Kaspersky Antivirus is a powerful malware protection software that comes with an impressive set of features. The exact list of features available depends on the pricing plan you choose that can range from basic malware and virus protection to a complete security suite.
The user interface of Kaspersky is visually appealing and simple. The majority of functions are displayed as tiles on the main screen. From there you can initiate scanning in a quick or full manner and review the results in a the most concise and clear way. You can also check the status of your device (e.g. A green checkmark means you’re protected) and get the recommendations for any further actions.
Kaspersky offers a variety of great features that include a data leak detector system that scans the dark web to discover personal information that is available to sell (e.g. email addresses, credit cards numbers and social security numbers) and scanning for weak settings that find settings that make your device vulnerable. Other security tools include an on-screen keyboard that blocks keyloggers from tracking the physical movements of your keyboard to reveal your login details and an emergency disk to disinfect computers that have been hacked. A free VPN is included with Kaspersky Internet Security subscriptions, though it’s limited to 300 MB per day.
While the software does an excellent job of ensuring your device is secure, some users have concerns 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 working with the government during the war in Ukraine. Although the company denies these allegations, the controversy has damaged its reputation. To restore confidence, Kaspersky has started its Global Transparency Initiative to prove that it is committed to the privacy and independence of its employees.
