Kaspersky Antivirus & Security offers basic protection for free. A paid subscription steps up surveillance with real-time scanning for malicious software.
Select the scope of your scan: Kaspersky lets you pick the scope of an initiated scan: You can check installed apps, selected folders, or the entire device for trouble areas. You can have the Kaspersky watch for adware, automatically attempt to clean infected files, and delete or quarantine an infected file if it can't be disinfected. The paid version of the app also lets you schedule scans and set whether Kaspersky automatically scans for malware after a virus database update.
Top scores for malware detection: Kaspersky Antivirus & Security earned the highest marks on the suite of tests run by AV-Test, a security and antivirus research firm, with top grades on malware detection and usability.
Solid companion tools: The free version of Kaspersky's app comes with on-demand virus scanning, antitheft features, and call and message blocking. With an annual $9.99 subscription, you gain active monitoring with automatic virus scanning of new and updated apps and antiphishing tools.
Free app lacks automatic scanning: While Kaspersky's app does an excellent job of identifying malware, the free version looks for problems only when you initiate a scan; it doesn't actively watch for security issues.
Kaspersky Antivirus & Security offers top-rated malware protection. While the free version provides basic security, monitoring requires user action. A paid subscription provides automatic app scanning and broader security detection.
