Windows SecurityÂ is built-in to Windows 11 and includes an antivirus program calledÂ Microsoft Defender Antivirus. Your device will be actively protected from the moment you start Windows 11. Windows Security continually scans for malware (malicious software), viruses, and security threats. In addition to this real-time protection, updates are downloaded automatically to help keep your device safe and protect it from threats.
Windows Security is your home to view and manage the security and health of your device.
The Windows Security notification icon shows on the taskbar system tray by default.
