A:AnswerHi Elan. Chances are you've already been automatically upgraded to the 2019 version, since it doesn't matter what version you purchase, you can always install the latest released version. If not, you can just run the 2019 installer and the 2018 version will be upgraded automatically.
A:AnswerTo activate Bitdefender you are now required to provide a credit card and agree to autorenewal (which you can later turn off).
I just bought, then returned, Bitdefender (10 devices) from BestBuy in Canada. I had been a Norton user for over 10 years but could not longer put up with their unreasonable demands. The Bitdefender box didn't say anything on the package about requiring a credit card (which Norton does state) and there was a disc inside the box. I thought, "Great. I don't even have to download." However, installation requires you to check agreement to terms and conditions, which if you read then says you have to provide a credit card and agree to autorenewal.
What is it with these guys strong-arming people into giving personal information to use a product they've alreay paid for. Even if you turn the autorenewal off, they still now have your name and address, and already know exactly where you go because of the nature of antivirus/vpn.
Warning : The installation says if you aren't willing to agree to the T&Cs, you should quit installation and return to place you bought it for a refund. However, I met with some resistance as the usual rules for returns does not allow opened software. I did have a senior rep agree but clearly others present would not have allowed it. Be forewarned.
A:AnswerHello Fred. Yes, you can purchase Bitdefender from Best Buy and activate it right before your current subscription expires in order to benefit from the lower price. Thank you for your continuous association with Bitdefender!
