How long do have this virus protectionn
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Can you tell me how long do I have this virus protection

Its free so it will be working as long as Microsoft stops the update for it.

If you can navigate around you can check it yourself too,Here is the how you have to do it

Click Start button and then click on Settings then Update & security then Windows Defender.

In that you can turn it on and off and check its settings

So far Microsoft hasn't declared any end of life or end of support period for Microsoft defender in windows 10.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
will I be notified if they do

Yes it will be notified through the system tray icon or through the windows 10 notification.
