Does Windows 11 Need Antivirus Software?

If you’re among the millions of people who own a PC running on Microsoft’s most well-known operating system, you might be wondering if you still require third-party antivirus software. In the end, Microsoft Windows 11 boasts hardware security features such as TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot that prevent malware from compromising your PC while it is booting up. These security tools are designed to ensure that only genuine drivers and OS files can be installed. They also ensure that malicious software aren’t able to alter your system’s memory or files.

Despite the robust security built-in measures Microsoft’s Windows Defender isn’t enough to completely protect your device from all forms of cyber-attacks. It’s important that you remember that even the most secure devices can be contaminated with viruses, malware and ransomware. These threats could harm your sensitive data, slow down the speed of your computer and erase your hard drive.

It’s always a good idea to have an antivirus program that is robust and secure for your Windows 11 machine. Its main function is blocking dangerous websites and ads that contain viruses so they won’t infect your computer or spread to other computers.

Some experts recommend combining Microsoft built-in security with a third party antivirus program to increase the security of your data. It’s crucial not to overdo it with layers of protection, as they could potentially interfere with each other and impede their effectiveness. Multiple antivirus programs can be costly and consume the resources of your computer, resulting in slower performance.
