Microsoft has launched a new app called Microsoft Defender. Not to be confused with Windows Defender, this new software will be available for the top four major platforms.
The new Microsoft Defender app will be available on the biggest computer and mobile platforms: Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS.
This new software will be part of the brand’s Microsoft 365 service with the goal of providing protection against online and local threats.
Microsoft designed this app to be an easy-to-operate security solution for any of your devices. On Windows and Mac, the Defender will work with the antivirus that’s already on your PC, whether it’s built-in or third-party. It can also safeguard you from phishing attacks online.
For Android devices, the Defender will come with its own antivirus with a malware scanner for newly installed and old apps. Web protection is also included.
As expected, the feature set is quite limited for iOS devices as it can only do web protection.
So you can easily understand what’s happening, the app will show the security status and alerts from all the other devices where you have the app installed.
You can download the Microsoft Defender on the company’s official website, Google Play Store, and Apple App Store.
