Platform: AntiVirus Software
WMU no longer offers virus protection software solutions for personal devices. WMU recommends using Windows Defender.
Windows Defender should be enabled on Windows 8 and Windows 10 by default if no other anti-virus software is installed. If not, please use the following instructions:
- Open Windows Defender by clicking the Start button. In the search box, type Defender, and then, in the list of results, click Windows Defender.
- On the Home tab, click Turn On.
Microsoft has not made Windows Defender available for personal use on macOS devices. The Office of Information Technology does not have a recommendation for any alternative antivirus software for Macs. If you would like to discuss possible anti-virus options, please feel free to contact the Help Desk at (269) 387-4357 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
