How to View Security Providers in Windows Security app in Windows 10


The Windows Security app is a client interface on Windows 10 that makes it is easier for you to view and control the security protections you choose and better understand the security features already protecting you on your Windows 10 device.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17704, there’s a new page called Security providers in the Windows Security app that provides you a list of all the other security providers (including antivirus, firewall, and web protection) that are running on your device. Here you can easily open the providers’ apps, or get more information on how to resolve any issue that they have reported to you through the Windows Security app.

This tutorial will show you how to view all security providers running on your Windows 10 device in the Windows Security app.



Here's How:

1. Open the Windows Security app.

2. Click/tap on Settings at the bottom left, and click/tap on the Manage providers link under Security providers on the right side. (see screenshot below)
