I feel like with Windows Defender getting better, and having an adblocker AKA "browser firewall", I no longer need 3rd-party security software on Windows. I've had Malwarebytes Premium for a while and the only time it blocked something, it was a false positive (netbsd.org 😆). I'm going to let that license expire.

Do you run a 3rd-party security app on Windows?


@ataraxia937 Your idea makes sense to me. Also, Microsoft is now pushing Defender ATP to business; I don't think they want their free, home Defender tool to suck.

But stay aware of credential stuffing & phishing. Use a pwd mgr to make it feasible to have a different pwd for each site.
