2022-05-14 0 By

This week, Microsoft released the Microsoft Defender Preview application for Android and Windows.The app is currently only available in the US, but is expected to expand to more countries in the future as the test scale expands.Microsoft Defender is Microsoft’s anti-malware tool. Microsoft Defender ATP is available on Android, but only for enterprise users.The latest Microsoft Defender Preview manages security not only for your current device, but for all devices connected to the same Microsoft account.On the home page, you can see a summary of the protection status on all your devices, as shown below.You can click or select this panel to see more information about the status of each device.Here you can see the number of apps and links (on Android) or files (on Windows) scanned in the last 24 hours.On Windows, you can also see your current Settings, such as virus and threat protection, ransomware protection, and more.If you want to check past threats, you can also check your security history.For Windows users, Microsoft Defender Preview is not a replacement for Windows Security, but a complement to it.On Android, antivirus software is questionable, but it can tell you if you’ve installed a potential malware.The most useful feature you might get out of this is actually being able to see the security status of all your devices in one place.This is especially useful if you share your computer with someone else, so you can see on your phone whether other users may have installed or downloaded malware.
