  • Kaspersky further enhances the privacy protection of PC users with new features
    Time: Sep. 18, 2020

    Kaspersky has improved the protection of users' personal data on PCs by introducing several new functions in its consumer products and by developing Kaspersky Security Cloud to suit user needs. The account verification feature now automatically verifies if the email addresses customers use when logging into their online accounts are at risk. Additionally, Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security, and Kaspersky Total Security now feature advanced detection of stalkerware - commercially available software that can be used to remotely spy on a PC user. Additionally, Kaspersky Password Manager can now be installed alongside Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Internet Security, Total Security, and Security Cloud products to keep user credentials organized and under control.


    According to a recent report by Kaspersky - Defending Digital Privacy: Taking Personal Protection to the Next Level, a third (30%) of consumers in the UAE have faced incidents where their private information has been accessed by someone without their consent. These statistics highlight the need to store and store personal data more securely and therefore have the right attitude to protect personal data.


    Furthermore, the privacy problem is compounded by the existence of stalkerware, special software that uses hidden functions that are difficult to identify. An example of this type of software was designed to run covertly on a victim's device. Since stalkerware is designed to collect all kinds of data, this is a problem not only for mobile devices, but also for PC users, regardless of the type of device the victim is using. of a stalker.


    To improve privacy on PCs, Kaspersky has introduced several new features for PC users in its consumer products. In particular, Kaspersky has improved the account verification functionality in Kaspersky Security Cloud for Windows. The feature now automatically verifies the email addresses that were entered when registering for online accounts. This means that users can save time by not having to manually enter email addresses for the service to verify. Additionally, users now have the option to add individual email addresses to a list that the feature checks regularly.


    In the company's new generation of traditional consumer products, including Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security, and Kaspersky Total Security, Kaspersky has enhanced detection to remove intrusive technologies such as stalkerware from PCs. The feature sends a notification to a user to warn them that stalkerware has been detected on their device and allows the user to remove, ignore, or add the identified software to their list of approved banned apps. This new feature for Windows is compatible with the release last year when Kaspersky began flagging commercial spyware with a special warning that alerts users to the dangers of stalkerware on Android devices.


    To ensure the security of login information stored in Windows, Kaspersky Password Manager now includes a free version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Kaspersky Internet Security. Customers who purchase Kaspersky Security Cloud and Kaspersky Total Security can install the premium version of Kaspersky Password Manager.


    There are two editions of Kaspersky Security Cloud available to customers: Personal and Family. While Personal Edition offers protection for the daily needs of modern users, Home Edition offers parental controls and remote administration tools to keep the whole family safe.
