Security is a fundamental element when we use our computer connected to the Internet. To help us avoid viruses and malware, Microsoft has its own security system called Windows Defender, which is included by default since Windows 10. Now, the Redmond people are preparing their renovation by turning it into a Win32 application with a new interface and improvements, whose Preview version can now be downloaded from the Microsoft Store.

Microsoft Defender now in the Windows Store

Microsoft continues with its application renewal process to adapt them to the new interface and appearance of Windows 11. This is the case of the Microsoft Defender application, which is already available available in Preview version in the Windows Store. This new version has more advanced security features to keep our data safe by protecting it 24 hours a day.

Among its novelties, it stands out for changing its UWP technology that it adopted in 2017 to revert to Win32, using Windows Presentation Foundation in its interface. It will also have new tools for the detection and elimination of malware, maintaining its protection in real time, as well as the cloud. It is now possible to download it from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10 and Windows 11, although if we log in it will not work, because since it has not been officially announced, its use may be limited.
