Kaspersky Antivirus Review

Kaspersky Antivirus is a powerful malware protection program that offers an impressive array of features. The exact number of features is dependent on the plan of pricing you select that ranges from basic malware and virus protection to a comprehensive security suite.

The user interface for Kaspersky is clean and visually appealing, with most functions laid out as convenient tiles on the main screen. You can perform thorough or quick scans and then analyze the results in a straightforward and concise manner. You can also see your device’s status (e.g. the green checkmark indicates that you’re protected) and look up recommendations for further actions.

Kaspersky has many amazing features, including a data leak detector system that searches the dark web to locate personal data for sale (e.g. email addresses, credit cards numbers, and social security numbers) and scanning for weak settings that identify settings that can make your device vulnerable. Other security tools include a keyboard that is on screen that prevents keyloggers from tracking the physical movements of your keyboard to reveal the login details of your account and a rescue disk for disinfecting computers that have been hacked. A free VPN is included with Kaspersky Internet Security subscriptions, although it’s limited to 300 MB per day.

While the software does a great job of protecting your device however, some users are concerned 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. While the company denies the allegations however, the controversy has damaged its reputation. Kaspersky’s Global Transparency Initiative was launched to regain trust and prove its commitment to privacy and integrity.
