However, many users have noted that for some time the Kaspersky Free Antivirus download page has been pointing to Kaspersky Security Cloud Free. What does this change mean?
The German branch of Kaspersky explains that in order to meet the constantly changing needs of users, free Kaspersky Free Antivirus has ceased to be just an anti-virus. Therefore, the manufacturer decided to release a new product, which from a functional point of view is much closer to the full-fledged Kaspersky Security Cloud flagship application than the usual simple security solution.
Unlike Kaspersky Free Antivirus, a free version of Kaspersky Security Cloud is available not just for windowsbut also offers adaptive protection for mobile devices from Android and iOS.
The free AV solution was limited to the anti-phishing engine and basic protection against malware. The manufacturer will emphasize that Kaspersky Security Cloud Free is a much more advanced cross-platform solution with a wide range of functions. The program has been integrated with the password manager, it also offers VPN (limited to the limit).
What next with Kaspersky Free Antivirus?
Users have no reason to worry, Kaspersky Free Antivirus will continue to work properly. The license will be updated automatically so you do not need to immediately change to Kaspersky Security Cloud Free, although of course the manufacturer recommends this procedure.
