Kaspersky Total Security 2022
Moscow-based Kaspersky offers some of the highest-rated antivirus applications on the market. Kaspersky Total Security test is perfect or nearly perfect in all unbiased industry tests, it works on a variety of systems, and it offers a wide variety of extras with a paid subscription.
However, there are a couple of areas where Kaspersky falls short of the mark. The first is in iOS offerings. There are a few tools available for iOS from Kaspersky—Security Cloud, Password Manager, Safe Kids, Safe Browser, Secure Connection, and QR Scanner—but no antivirus scanner.
Kaspersky also has a reporting feature, called Kaspersky Security Network (KSN), that takes liberal rights with what it collects and reports about not only the scans that Kaspersky antivirus products conduct but also about your system and the data on your system that is examined by the application. This coupled with the previous allegations that Kaspersky has ties to the Russian government could be off-putting for some users.1
With the above information out in the open, we tested Kaspersky Total Security ourselves to see how it measured up, and if it’s really worth using to protect yourself online.
