Kaspersky Antivirus is a powerful malware security program that has an impressive set of conduct due diligence features. The features you get will depend on the plan that you select. It can be anything from basic protection against viruses and malware to a comprehensive security suite.

The user interface for Kaspersky is clean and visually appealing, with all functions laid out in convenient tiles on the main screen. From here you can launch quick or full scans and review the results in a an easy and concise manner. You can also determine the status of your device (e.g. an orange tick indicates that you are safe) and get recommendations for the next steps.

Kaspersky has a number of fantastic features such as a leak detector system that searches the dark web to discover personal information that is available to sell (e.g. email addresses, credit cards numbers, and social security numbers) and a scanner for weak settings that identify settings that make your device vulnerable. Keyloggers can’t monitor your movements in order to locate your login information. Another security tool is an onscreen keyboard which stops keyloggers from tracking your physical movements. A free VPN is included with Kaspersky Internet Security subscriptions, however, it’s limited to 300 MB per day.

While the software does a decent job of keeping your device safe but some users are worried about the privacy practices of Kaspersky Lab. The company is owned and managed by the Russian security firm Eugene Kaspersky. It has been accused of working with the government during the war in Ukraine. The scandal has damaged reputation of the company even though it denies the allegations. To regain trust, Kaspersky has started its Global Transparency Initiative to prove that it is committed to privacy and independence.
