Is the protection really needed? Our teacher in IT high school told us that if you don't visit some specific websites, you don't need antivirus software.

Sadly there are still some people who believe that. Yes it is needed.

He is right in 100% under one condition, if he's talking about pure Antivirus software. You can go through life with good Firewall and Antimalware software only but these are usually part of Antivirus suite
But most people think antivirus=whole package and your teacher is probably one of them, so no, do not listen to him.

And it comes free with windows now.
No need to buy anything else.

Agree to a point. Windows Defender isn't bad at basic anti-virus and as a firewall. But there's a lot more to worry about than just viruses.
Windows Defender lacks some of the functionality of a full security suite such as more advanced ransomware protection and protection against other forms of malware. It's come a long way in the last couple of years and I'm sure it will continue to improve. For now though, I'd still err on the side of caution and use a full security suite from another vendor.

On the Internet it is a very good idea to be paranoid. Kaspersky is an excellent product.

A lot of people assume teachers are male
I use Windows defender and only had one issue which was recently (and also my fault) downloading game cube games and ended up downloading a bloatware programme by accident. Programme is gone but some files do exist. Took me hours to get rid of it as no matter what permissions I changed I still wasn't allowed to uninstall it. If you basically use the net for YouTube and just googling then you don't need any anti virus software as defender is up to the job

I started to use macOS so I don't care about it to be honest. Should I?

macOS is based on UNIX and is inherently more secure than Windows of old, although more recently the latest Windows 10 OS builds have done a lot to close the gap. Many still believe that macOS is secure enough without anti-virus, although there is certainly malware that targets macOS, so personally I wouldn't take the risk. Considering the minimal cost, it makes sense, or there are free AV tools for macOS too..

Ok thank you I am going to consider that.
