Microsoft Defender: a security suite included in Microsoft 365

Microsoft adds a rope to Microsoft 365. Its subscription, which already included Office applications and OneDrive storage, also includes a security suite. Available on Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android, Microsoft Defender is supposed to protect you from different online threats with tools and tips. Microsoft Defender is not completely new, but the publisher obviously thought it appropriate to relaunch it today.

Features differ by platform. If Microsoft Defender protects against malware on Android, this is not the case on iOS because it cannot integrate deeply into the system – but this risk is anyway low on iOS.

The suite also includes protection against phishing – protection that the main browsers already integrate elsewhere, to see if Microsoft’s is more efficient – ​​and a dashboard that shows the status of all devices connected to Microsoft. Defender.

This new app doesn’t seem to have much appeal for Apple users, but if you’re a Microsoft 365 subscriber, it costs you nothing to try it out. The prices of the Microsoft 365 offers remain the same: €69/year for the individual formula and €99/year for the family offer up to six people. You can save money on Amazon where the two annual subscriptions are sold respectively for €49.50 and €79.
