    Price is obviously a huge differentiating factor in comparing Microsoft Defender and McAfee. The former is free, and the latter starts at $84.99 a year for 1 device (upon renewal), with a number of upgrades available, and usually offers a deep discount for the first year. Defender is already installed on Windows 10 and 11 and is easily controlled in your PC settings. Still, many professional reviewers say that the current threat landscape demands a higher level of security to protect against viruses, spyware, ransomware and other kinds of attacks. McAfee, in computer security since the 1980s, offers an array of choices which provide not just malware protection but also features aimed at privacy, parental controls, identity monitoring, and personal data cleanup.

    Microsoft integrates Microsoft Defender into Windows 11 and Windows 10. It is not available for other operating systems except as part of an enterprise plan. McAfee offers plans for devices powered by Windows, MacOS, Android, and iOS.

    Professional reviewers say Microsoft has done a pretty good job providing basic, no-frills security with Microsoft Defender for the millions of PC users who don’t want to buy third-party security software. It has improved in recent years and has the advantage of being pre-installed on PCs with no setup required. Microsoft Defender is easily controlled from your Windows settings. But some reviewers say Microsoft Defender may not be enough to keep you safe from fast-evolving malware threats and that rivals – including some free ones – may do a better job of updating virus signatures and protecting against some types of attacks, including ransomware, phishing, and identity theft. You’ll also need to look elsewhere for features such as a VPN, password manager, and parental controls, as well as for protection for non-Windows devices.
