Kaspersky has a long-standing reputation for protecting against online threats with local scanning and cloud-based machine learning. 

The antivirus is also packed with valuable features like parental controls, password manager, stalkerware protection, a secure browser for online transactions, etc.

While its malware scanner didn’t recognize some threats during our tests, it is way ahead of its competition. The antivirus has fast speeds and leaves a negligible impact on your computer’s performance.
