There is a lot of antivirus software to choose from. To be honest No antivirus will fully protect you! But having an antivirus will definitely increase your personal privacy and device security.
Antivirus software is not what it used to be 10 years ago. They offer way more than protect you from viruses. It will also offer different features like VPM, Parental Control, Password manager, webcam protection and many more.
I will do my best to test them individually from an average person perspective and leave the geeky stuff for labs. In this section, I will list only the antiviruses that I used and tested.
My opinion is just my opinion. If you don’t like the antiviruses that I recommend, go with a different vendor.
