Microsoft has announced a Web-based privacy dashboard for Windows 10. Now the Redmond-based company has introduced its much-anticipated Windows 10 Creators Update featuring Windows Defender Security Center to help users monitor their security settings in one place. Here are the details.
Using the Windows Defender Security Center, users will be able to see and choose the settings for their Windows 10 device and also provide a better translation the security features on the given platform. To clear any confusion, Microsoft said that the company is not providing new security features but will help users see the already-available features within the Windows Defender Security Center.
This is what the Microsoft’s official blog post reads:
“Windows Insiders can explore this experience now under All Apps in the Start Menu and provide feedback through the Insider Feedback hub.”
So, the security centre essentially comes with five pillars namely Virus and threat protection, Device performance and Health, Firewall and network protection, App and browser control, and Family options.
Virus and Threat Protection
This is a section that provides users with updates on the antivirus present on the device. According to the company, “if you’ve chosen Windows Defender Antivirus, you scan results and threat history will be displayed here, or you will be able to launch your own third-party AV protection app directly from that screen.”
Device Performance And Health
The section of Devive performance & health provides users with a single view of their latest Windows updates, drivers, battery life, and storage capacity. Users will be getting an option to clean install Windows using the ‘Refresh Windows’ feature from this section.
Firewall and Network Protection
with this you can get information on the network connections and active Windows Firewall settings.
App and Browser Control
It enables users to adjust settings for SmartScreen for apps and browsers helping you be more informed and stay safer online by warning you of any potential malicious sites, downloads and unrecognized apps and files from the Internet.
In addition, if your subscription or paid antivirus software should expire, Windows Defender Antivirus will kick in order to provide protection against virus by default until you take further actions. Considering that Windows is still be the fact to be a relatively unsafe and vulnerable platform, then, it will be interesting to see what the company’s latest addition will bring with it to improve its reputation and popularity in many ways.
