What Is Windows Security?

If you own a Windows computer, you’ll have a built-in security tool that protects against malware and viruses. It’s called Microsoft Defender, or Windows Security that provides a unified experience to manage the security of your antivirus, firewall and performance features. It also lets you monitor the performance of your device as well as protect your data by using encryption in hardware and password management. Installing an antivirus program from a third party will disable the Microsoft Defender Antivirus engine, but it won’t affect the functionality of Windows Security itself.

One of the most important features of Windows Security is Microsoft Defender’s real-time security. It scans your entire system and blocks malicious software in real time. It can also identify and restore malicious applications that were mistakenly blocked. It’s important to keep in mind that the Microsoft Defender scanner relies on online and cloud-based malware definitions. This could cause it to fall behind paid competitors in malware and virus detection rates in some cases.

Other settings you can access through Windows Security include User Account Control that warns you when something or someone attempts to change the system-level settings or settings, and locks the screen until an administrator can confirm the change. It also allows you to set how often the center will run a background check and look for updates.

Windows Security allows you to create backups from the Microsoft OneDrive folder, and even securely erase your hard drive and start fresh. It’s a great method to keep your computer’s operating system and your personal data secure, and it’s a good alternative for those who don’t want to pay for an additional security program.
