Windows has gotten a lot of flak over the years as being a platform that is constantly targeted by hacks, malware, viruses, and so on, making it seem like Microsoft isn’t doing a good enough job of securing it. However when you’re one of the most widely-used operating systems in the world, it’s not a surprise that you would be the most targeted as well, rigt?

That being said, Microsoft has recently released a new ad for Windows 10 in which they are boasting that the upcoming operating will be its most secure Windows yet. The video serves to highlight several security features of the platform, such as how Windows 10 will support a variety of biometric logins.

This includes iris scanning, facial recognition, and fingerprint scanning. They also point out how Windows 10 will be able to pick up on websites that might be a front for phishing attacks using a cloud-based reputation system. Then there is the good old Windows Defender that will help protect computers against malware.

Safe to say a lot of these issues can be prevented if you were to surf the web smartly, like not open emails with suspicious attachments, and avoiding websites that requires you to download and install a file without really explaining why. In any case even if security isn’t a top priority to you, the rest of Windows 10’s new features and new looks should be just as compelling.
