Microsoft releases the new Windows Defender Hub app

It seems that Microsoft is trying to make more and more people ditch third-party antivirus applications and start using Windows Defender. The company just released the Windows Defender Hub application for the Windows PC users as a result. The application can be downloaded and installed from the Windows Store.

This application will only open the Windows Defender interface and display  news regarding new viruses, links to blog posts from Windows Defender and other tips that will help you keep your computer clean. With this application, you will be able to scan your computer and check its protection status as well.

We’re not sure why Microsoft has not added access to the Windows Firewall Settings from the Windows Defender Hub. The company could have also added additional configuration options which would allow users to tweak security settings in order to improve Windows 10 security.

If you want quick access to Windows Defender and read about new viruses and malware, we suggest you install this application on your Windows 10 PC. In order to do so, open the Windows Store, search for Windows Defender Hub and click the “FREE” button. We hope that Microsoft will add some more features to the Windows Defender Hub because, currently, this application looks quite simple.

However, we remind you that according to specialists, Windows Defender is not as good as other third-party antivirus applications. In other words, if you want to make sure that your computer stays more secure, you should purchase a third-party antivirus application that will offer much more protection than free Windows Defender.

Are you using Windows Defender on your Windows 10 PC? Do you think that this application is good enough to keep your computer clean?
