Windows Defender is antivirus software that comes pre-installed with the Windows operating system and provides protection against all forms of viruses.

The fact that Windows antivirus is installed by default on your device does not imply that it is less powerful than other security programmes. As a result, it analyses the programmes that are run, reviews the downloads that are made, and keeps the computers updated as well as or better than any other antivirus. At the same time, it has some interesting extra features, such as parental control and device performance assessments.
When the app is installed, it will display notifications in the notification field, alerting you to any possible threats that have been identified. In addition, the software sends real-time warnings, such as when the defence is deactivated. If the Windows Defender icon isn’t visible in the notification field, click on hidden icons in it, and it should appear if the programme is configured correctly.
With real-time security, WD keeps a constant eye on the device and alerts you if any possible threats, such as viruses or spyware, attempt to install or run on it. Because of the importance of this function, it should always be turned on. If the software is turned off, the user is notified and the computer’s status is changed to ‘at risk.’
Windows Defender is available for free in all versions and can be installed on any device running the Windows operating system. Furthermore, its free nature does not mean that it lacks the same robustness or functionality as other security software. In reality, it is widely regarded as one of the best antivirus programmes available today.
