Microsoft Defender offers local and online protection for all platforms

Microsoft has released its Microsoft Defender app for all four major platforms. Available as part of the Microsoft 365 service, it is designed to protect against online threats and local threats.

Not to be confused with Windows Defender (now Windows Security), the new Microsoft Defender app is designed to provide a comprehensive solution for your security needs. On Windows and macOS, Microsoft Defender will work with built-in or third-party antivirus, while providing protection against Internet phishing attacks. The app will also display the security status of your other devices that have the app installed and provide security alerts.

On Android, Microsoft Defender includes its own antivirus and malware scan for currently installed and newly downloaded apps. It also provides web protection as desktop applications. The iOS app is the least useful as it only includes web protection, but like other apps, you can see the security status of your other devices that have the app installed.

The app is free to download on all platforms, but requires a Microsoft 365 subscription.
