Yes, Windows 10 needs antivirus protection. But you don’t have to worry about it.
Windows 10 comes with its built-in Windows Defender. You do not need to worry about installing any third-party antivirus software (Avast, AVG, etc.) like in previous Microsoft Window versions. In Windows 10, Windows Defender is sufficient enough for protection.
All you have to do is watch for any notifications from Windows Defender. It’ll let you know if something’s not right.
Can I still use third-party antivirus software?
Yes, you can still use any antivirus software you would like.
Do I need anything else to protect my computer?
I recommend using third-party anti-malware software such as Malwarebytes. It’s free and a full scan will ensure you are completely free of malware.
