If you own a Windows 10 device, your operating system comes with security tools that can help you harden your PC. Windows Security (formerly Microsoft Defender) offers malware and antivirus protection, as well as firewall and security settings.

Its robust, real-time antimalware application, Core isolation, and hardware-level security features (like the security processor and Secure Boot) can help safeguard you from a variety of threats, without slowing your device. Windows Security lets you manage your account protection and device sign-in as well as other options.

Even if your system is protected with the most secure security measures, passwords and other security measures, malware can still be able to sneak in and cause issues. It’s essential to regularly back up your data and regularly update your operating system. Windows 10 comes with a number of backup tools and cloud storage services, which make it easy to safeguard your files.

You can use Windows Backup, File History or Recovery Drives to backup regularly your system and restore it if an emergency occurs. Consider cloud-based solutions such as OneDrive, Google Drive, and other tools for enterprise backup.

Limiting access to your device is crucial. Make sure that no user is granted Administrator access. This will stop anyone using your computer from making large changes that could expose your data to risk. You can do this by setting up individual Standard accounts, or by limiting access to the device by using Parental Controls.
