    Nice user interface

    I've used three other antivirus programs, I wanted to try bitdefender since my current antivirus is expiring soon. I'm impressed by the user interface as seen in the pictures. During installation it gave me a warning about my processor being too slow (i3 second gen), however, it seems to be running quite smooth and a bit faster than my previous software. I like the installation process as it is not complex and it guides you step by step. I had to restart my pc which is something the software did not prompt me to do during installation. As scanning speed I have not notice any difference compared to my previous software. Ability to detect viruses I can't comment yet since I haven't come across one yet... and hopefully won't anytime soon. It has an autodetect feature as others I've use so nothing new there. So far it has been a good switch. It gets four stars because there are no utilities such as pc tuner in this version, for those options the Total version is the right choice. It would be nice if it gave the choice of adding individual utilities.

    Made for Windows 10

    Setup Need to create a login on at https://central.bitdefender.com to download, activate, and install your software. After downloading the installer, you will be prompted to download the installation files. This is pretty quick and everything is up and running fairly quickly. Performance My machine is running Windows 10 and has 64GB of DDR3 3200 RAM and an AMD 1700x. The software runs like a dream and isn't really resource intensive at all. It is using between 391MB and 518MB of RAM; not too bad to me. To put that in perspective, Chrome is using upwards of 1478MB of RAM. Clean New UI - The user interface is intuitive and easy to use. I really like how everything is laid out. AutoPilot - For those who aren't IT geniuses, this is for you. VPN Builtin - Nice VPN software built in. You get 200mb with free, but you can activate this option to be unlimited. Vulnerability Scanner - Good for beginners Webcam Protection - Notifies you when it is accessed or block it totally. Hi Performance Low Resource Demand - usually AV software hampers the system resources. I am pleased to say this is the best for Windows 10. Definitely recommend this for home use.

    5 Star So Far

    Along with our new computers, we decided to get some new protection. While we have good surfing habits, we have family and friends who are not so particular about the sites they visit, the streams they download, and the emails they pass on. It seemed prudent to add a level of security, and Bitdefender has good reviews. Setup was as easy as we expected it to be, but we are pleased with the offerings and the flexibility of the dashboard. There is plenty to see and plenty that we can modify to better fit our needs. We have never had any problems with online banking, but the secure system that Bitdefender offers is a welcome opportunity to bring our security up to a new level. We already subscribe to a VPN service, but Bitdefender has one built in. We very well might be able to save a bit of cash, there. We'll come back and update our review as time passes. So far, we like it.

    Installation of the Bitdefender software was effortless. The website walked me through the process easily and gave me the prompts as needed. I was pleased with the behind the scenes coverage this new security software was giving to me as I surf the web, stream content, and shop online. I was really most impressed with Bitdefender's smart pay system which can take you to a safe web browser and allow you to be more secure with online shopping to keep your payment information safe. The program run efficiently in the background while my computer doesn't feel bogged down at all. I am pleased with the performance of my computer speed as it still feels the same as before the Bitdefender installation. Overall, I'm happy to know that Bitdefender is keeping me protected in this cyber security age of not knowing when you're safe or being threatened with various online threats.

    Great protection for the price

    I needed virus protection for my laptop since the trial was expiring. Bitdefender offered 3 device protection for my Windows 10 PC at what I think is a reasonable price. I have only installed it on a laptop since all my other devices are Apple. You can use this on Android devices. Based on what I’ve seen so far, I’m pretty pleased with this, installation was super easy, it offers quick scan, easy access through desktop icon where you can update, manage protection features& privacy features including webcam protection & parental controls. It also suggests critical updates needed for Windows. I’ve also had virus protection in the past where there was a lot of annoying pop ups or the firewall blocked certain things. I haven’t noticed any of those things yet. Overall a good deal.

    I had Trend Micro on Geeksquad yearly automatic renewal, but on our older (2014?) Windows 7 home desktop computer, it crashed each time i tried to install new 2019 version. After numerous attempts by Geeksquad, it was determined Trend Micro no longer covers Windows7(not compatible), so we went to Webroot, which was recommended by Geeksquad. It seems faster and doesn’t bog down computer. The $30 yearly price is very reasonable. It also is highly rated by other resources, so should hold up well in years to come.

    This was a no "Brainer" when it comes to testing products. I have and use the 2017 edition and just upgraded my other two personal computers and renewed my primary one. The features are pretty standard in the way of what the field offers when it comes to Internet Security software. However, what I will first hand tell you about Bit Defender is that it works. In a year of use, I have had ZERO internet security issues. This leads me to assume it is working flawlessly!!!!

    I have had the software running for the last few weeks and the installation and protection it offers is easy to setup and monitor. It has numerous safety features and the dashboard has the an easy readout and scan feature. I definitely recommend this software, it is much easier to run than the mcafee software I had previously. The VPN and SAFEPAY features come in handy to keep your payment information secure. A great software bundle.

    This is the WORST software ever. It slowed down my system dramatically and the customer service at BitDefender makes breaking out of SuperMax easier to do than getting in contact with them. They are horrible and I will never purchase this again. A complete waste of money.

    The product was easy to install. I also found that it doesn't use a lot of resources to run or bog down the machine like my last anti-virus. No complaints about the product, however, I wish that I would have bought the version that will install on Mac's.

    Bought the teenage son a gaming computer. Needed something to protect. Reviews said this was a good product. Went to the store was helped by employees and it was on sale. Seemed like the perfect match. I have been happy with the purchase and was an easy install.

    I've used Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky and now Bitdefender. I like Bitdefender b/c it is easy to use and set up, but also is rated highest now among the internet security programs. It is now my go-to internet security software.

      Hi Fred,

      Thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear you experienced difficulty when trying to install Internet Security 2019. Based on your comments, I'm especially concerned to hear that you had a pop up window that prompted you to pay an additional $179 for support/help.

      Please know that here at Bitdefender 24/7 product support is included with the product at no additional charge so it's possible you might've somehow ended up contacting a non-Bitdefender support service. Please consider contacting us at bitsy@bitdefender.com or at (954) 414-9655 and we will do our best to get Internet Security 2019 up and running on your PC right away.

      Thanks,

      -The Bitdefender Team BitDefender

    I'm much happier with Bitdefender than with the Kaspersky I had before. It was a little bit of a hassle activating, but it was probably me.
