Windows 10 security features on Samsung PCs

Woman using PC

With so many viruses and malware out there on the web, security has become crucial for laptops and PCs. However, not everybody knows how to protect themselves from cyber-attacks. Don’t worry, Windows 10’s built-in security has got you covered.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by software version and model.

Use the Windows Security features

Windows Security is the central area where you can view and manage security and other features for your PC. For example, you can set parental controls for when your kids are using the internet.

From Settings, click Update & Security, and then click Windows Security on the sidebar. Click on any of the available options to launch Windows Security.

Below are all the available features:

Windows security options menu
  • Virus & threat protection: Scan your PC with Quick scan or a custom scan to remove threats. Turn on tamper protection and randomware protection.

  • Account protection: Security for your account and sign-in information. You can also set Dynamic lock for added account protection.

  • Firewall & network protection: Manage who and what can access your networks.

  • App & browser control: Protect yourself from potential harmful apps and services.

  • Device security: Protects the core parts of your device with Core isolation. Secure boot prevents malicious software from loading when your device starts up.

  • Device performance & health: View any issues with time service, storage capacity, battery life, and apps & software.

  • Family options: Manage parental controls to help protect your kids online. If your kids have their seperate PCs, you can make sure they're up-to-date and check their security statuses.
