This is how you can disable Windows Defender on your computer
The all-new Windows 11 operating system from Microsoft has much to offer users of all skill levels, but the one thing that remains at the forefront is the company’s commitment to security and privacy. As technology has progressed, the antivirus market has changed, with a large number of third-party suppliers entering the market in an attempt to keep their customers’ PC and laptop devices protected against viruses and malware that may attempt to cause chaos and even tamper with the onboard data.
Certain third-party applications, on the other hand, have been identified for inadvertently installing malware attacks and then wiping them out in order to demonstrate to users that it is functioning properly. On rare occasions, this has not worked, and the computer has been compromised as a result. In an effort to bring this infamous program and its manufacturers to justice, Microsoft released a new version of Windows Defender that was significantly improved. It’s been a component of Windows operating systems for a long time, but Windows 10 and, more recently, Windows 11 have elevated it to the status of must-have utility for your computer’s protection.
We strongly advise that you keep the Windows Defender application running on your Windows 11 computer since this will eliminate virtually all reliance on third-party antivirus software. However, if you decide that you do not want to use this functionality for some reason, we will show you how to do so in this article.
Without further ado, let’s get started.
