Getting the best Security Apps (anti-virus software) will go a long way towards protecting your information from data breaches from malware and viruses.

Malware and viruses will often put your personal information – birth dates, bank account information, credit card numbers, etc. – at risk. The viruses and malware make your data available on the dark web, which can ruin your financial life.

So, below, we look at the best three Security Apps.

McAfee Antivirus Plus

The McAfee Antivirus Plus is available for Windows and macOS devices, as well as also available for phone devices, both Android and iOS.

The McAfee software offers the full security features – Antivirus, Firewall, App Boost, and Secure Apps to run. The app works by blocking risky connections and removing threats to your computer in the background, though it gives you notifications of these actions.

McAfee also has a WebAdvisor, which warns you of the risk of what you are about to download. It is one of the best Security Apps.

Bitdefender Plus

Bitdefender Plus is antivirus software that is great for home users who have no technical skills. It has an entry-level antivirus software offering, which means it’s plug-and-play software.

For free, the Bitdefender gives you real-time detection of threats to your computer, web attack prevention, and anti-fraud or anti-phishing protection as well as advanced threat defense.

However, the paid version (for $39.99 a year with a 30-day free trial) gives you an additional Safepay for your online financial transactions, multi-layer ransomware protection, and assessment of vulnerability. You also get a password management tool that lets you create unique passwords for all your web activity, all managed with a simple dashboard. You also get a Virtual Protection Network (VPN) –for an additional subscription of course.

Kaspersky Antivirus

Perhaps the most well-known of the above, Kaspersky is a really safe Antivirus that offers admirable protection from malware, viruses, and ransomware.

Kaspersky offers four levels of antivirus software (with the cheapest coming in at $59.99 a year).

There is the Anti-Virus for Windows only, which gives basic antivirus, ransomware, and malware protection. This is the cheapest, at $59.99 a year, though you get a discount of $29.99 in the first year.

There is Kaspersky Internet Security, for PC, Mac, Android, and iOS. This adds to the previous antivirus by also giving system coverage, phishing, and webcam protection and also gives you an encrypted browser to protect financial information. The price for this starts at $79.99.

Then, you get Kaspersky for all major Operating systems (OS) too. This one adds internet security plus a GPS child locator, backup file protection, and a password manager. This one costs $99.99 per year.

The last is Security Cloud, also for all major OS. On this one you get two versions; parental adaptive security, which anticipated threats to your device and advises you on the action you should take. Then you have account-based control, which allows every user to adjust protection and features to suit their needs.

The right anti-virus greatly gives you peace of mind so choose the best ones for your PC.
