In Kaspersky applications, hardware virtualization technology is used by Protected Browser to provide additional protection against complex malware that could intercept your personal data by using the clipboard or phishing. We recommend enabling hardware virtualization for additional protection if it is available.

Hardware virtualization is only available on 64-bit versions of Windows 8, 8.1 or 10.
