You can link all your devices to Microsoft Defender and stay alert to security threats

Microsoft Defender, the all-in-one security platform that enables enterprise users to track malware threats for all their devices, is expanding its target audience outside of business. Defender is now available to anyone with a personal or family Microsoft 365 subscription.

The program is available on Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android in select regions and is a simple one-stop-shop to assess all security issues, including malware, compromising browsing history, and other web threats on all your associated devices. Defender will scan all your apps and links you come across and warn you to take action against the threats it finds. It also integrates with Norton and McAfee software if you have it installed. Microsoft has more information if you need it. You can grab the Android app from the Play Store via the link below.


Microsoft Defender came to Android in August 2020 doing much the same thing, but users had to have a Microsoft 365 E5 subscription to use it. With this, instead of managing fleets of devices, you can now monitor your family’s devices and make sure they’re safe from attack…or maybe just your own devices – no matter if you have a mountain of technology you’ve been using constantly.
