Microsoft’s Defender to Support Android and IOS devices

Windows Defenders first release was on October 24, 2006 and it supports Windows XP And Window Server 2003. Major updates build its reputation as a reliable Anti Virus with its Real-Time protection and browser integration security. In 2020 it receives a top product recommendation from AV-Test.


By the end of 2020, Microsoft’s Security will support both Android and IOS according to CNBC.

The software will support anti-malware and phishing attacks security. CNBC highlights several quotes from Microsoft said in an interview last Thursday. Rob Lefferts, a Microsoft corporate vice president, said that iOS and Android are “pretty safe,” stating, “They’re pretty safe, but pretty safe is not the same as safe.” He also added that “Malware does happen on those platforms.”
Apple and Google are currently keen in keeping out malwares in their app stores but Microsoft is still persistent in providing security to mobile users.
No specific details yet for the complete features of Microsoft’s Defender in Android and iOS but hopefully in the coming months we will have a definitive release date and a roll out of beta tests.
