Windows Defender in 2021​

Most experts would advise you not to rely on MS Windows built-in antivirus due to its unreliability.

However, that is no longer the case since 2019.

Before now, Windows users would usually deactivate Windows Defender and install other third-party antivirus programs. Things have significantly turned around.

In 2020, Microsoft Defender was voted one of the best antivirus applications. AV-Test, an independent testing lab, carried out thorough testing in May-June 2020. Windows Defender got a 6.0/6 score in the AV-Test report, which is quite incredible.

I say NO you do not need 3rd party antivirus apps in windows.

This is now a user preference choice, but it is not needed

Microsoft Defender for Windows is getting a massive overhaul​

Thanks Lawrence Abrams and the folks at bleeping computer.


That being said I still prefer Webroot and will renew my subscription in December, we get along well with each other.
