According to The Verge, Microsoft Defender’s features will vary by which platform. For instance, on iPhone and iPad, Microsoft Defender users won’t have antivirus protection. However, they’ll have some phishing protections alongside their dashboard that features alerts for their other devices. Additionally, the new app includes security alerts for your devices to ensure maximum protection. While not on iPhone, you can also view Microsoft Defender’s cybersecurity tips on your Mac or Windows computer. This is just the start.
Microsoft is aiming to make your internet experience safer for you and your family. For 365 users, the business is unveiling its new Defender security dashboard today. The Microsoft Defender security app is available for iPhone, Mac, Windows, and Android devices, and it uses current antivirus software or other defences. Microsoft Defender is an online security solution that meets you and your family where they are by combining different defences into a single dashboard. It protects you and your family online across all of their devices. It includes advice and suggestions to help you improve your security. Defender evolves with you as you add family members and devices to your digital footprint, keeping your defences up to date with trusted technologies.
As we look forward, we will continue to bring more protections together under a single dashboard, including features like identity theft protection and secure online connection. Microsoft Defender is simplified online security that grows with you and your family to help keep you safe.
