Anti-Virus Consumer Software

Author: Alfred Seufert

A list of commonly available anti-virus software for win, mac, linux, and mobile.

The list of anti-virus software was obtained by the two supplied wikipedia pages. Availablity of platform support was checked against the products page of each website respectively (2018-07-31). A mobile product that only supports VPN protection or password managers were not considered as anti-virus software. The url of the company owning the software is NOT evaluated in this list, only the url of the product page (e.g. '' yes, but not ''). "Microsoft Security Essentials" is not included in this list, since it does not have a dedicated product page url other than If a product page has or redirects the user to a language specific subpage (either subdomain or different top-level domain) the international url was chosen instead.

The 'License' attribute only differentiates between open source and proprietary. 'Free option' is 'yes' if the vendor provides a free version (not trialware!), otherwise 'no' (includes trialware). The next five columns are yes if support for the corresponding platform is available. 'Origin' is the country code the software has originated. 'Products' is just an enumeration of all available consumer products, in case someone want to search for his / her installed version.

Take the results shown on this page with a grain of salt! Some of our checks may report wrong results.

What is this? This page shows a summary of a machine-generated analysis of several web pages commissioned by a PrivacyScore user. During the analysis it was checked whether the privacy of the visitors is protected on a technical level as well as possible when visiting the given Internet addresses, and whether the operator uses common security mechanisms on the website. This can indicate how seriously an operator takes data protection. However, it is not possible to determine the actual security level achieved.  More details please!

You can influence the ranking by your preferences. Use the and arrows to change the importance (left means more important).

At the moment we only provide one ranking scheme that consists of the following categories: NoTrack, EncWeb, Attacks, and EncMail. We perform a priorized sort to obtain the ranking: We start with the first category, sorting the sites according to their rating:         . Sites with an identical rating in a category are further sorted considering the next category to the right. This procedure is repeated until all categories have been considered.
