Do people use Anti-virus software, especially on Windows? I never used one on Mac, but since moving to Windows, that is one aspect I am pretty split on. I have been primarily using Windows defender, but every one around suggests that might not be enough.
Have a look at this article from howtogeek. Windows defender and good habits like not clicking links in emails and not downloading software that you didn’t go looking for should be sufficient. Despite me saying don’t click links here’s a link. If you don’t won’t to click on it google ‘do I need third party AV howtogeek’
