    Do they really secure the PC even if they are free because after instaling Antivirus like Avira i feel passwords in google chrome are getting compromised.

    Windows Defender protects those who cannot be bothered to install a third-party antivirus tool. Recommend adding MalwareBytes to that though.

    I've been using the Windows Defender for a year now - no problems so far.

    If you install an antivirus, it is very important that it regularly updates its databases!

    If itís between good or bad, my opinion is - theyíre good. In Windows itís certainly much better to use a free AV than not use AV at all. I havenít used Windows for the last years, but from what Iíve read, Windows Defender seems to have become competitive lately. In the past Iíve had interesting experience with the free Avast - it seems to update frequently and ping you with a lot of notifications in the beginning, after a few months it becomes silent. Not sure if this means it doesnít update or it just updates quietly.
