    Good Protection, annoying popups

    Posted

    The BitDefender Total Security suite is a good protection suite that offers virus scan and app scanning. It comes with free (limited data) VPN, and offers web and app protection. All of these features work well and as intended. My issue is the absolute annoying amount of popups and "reminders" that come up whenever you do almost anything on your phone. If you are on a site that even mentions the word "bank" the app prompts you to use the secure protection to protect your data. The popups for using the VPN, scans, and almost anything that you do on your phone make the experience just annoying.

    This works great and is very comprehensive for a Mac and Windows computer. It covers web browsing, updates seamlessly and hasn’t caused any performance issues on either platform. This has become my favorite laptop protection. I wasn’t as fond of the application on my iPhone and found that it wasn’t overly helpful compared to other iOS applications. It was trying to get me to turn on VPN protection, but the minute I started streaming a baseball game, it ran out of the very small amount of included data and tried to sell me an upgrade. I am not a fan of upselling from within a product.

    Unobtrusive So Far

    The download and install process was very simple. I had concerns about how many resources it would use while running in the background on my gaming laptop, but so far I've had no issues with performance. There are various modules that can be turned on or off, including a firewall, spam protection and even a built-in VPN. After installing it identified one of my manufacturer-installed apps as a possible threat, but whitelisting it was very simple and has given me no issues. The software seems to work and has no impact on performance. What more can you ask for from AV software?

    I recently renewed from 2018 to 2019. The installation process was easy and fast. Simply signed in and followed the instructions. The software seems to install quicker and seems to run a little faster than the older model. The parental controls are a must. We have 2 kids under 15 so it's a must and it's seamless in operation. The software is customizable and easy to navigate as well. I've never had any issues with the older software and nothing no issues for the 2 months I've been using 2019 model either. Good stuff!

    This is the first time that I have used Bitdefender antivirus protection. The Best Buy representative told me that it was rated number one now, so I switched from McAfee to Bitdefender. The software console is good for the desktop computer, but not really thrilled with the console for the android tablets that we have. I think it should all work the same on each type of device. The Best Buy representative was helpful and knowledgeable about the antivirus / malware products...

    Best cybersecurity software I've tried so far

    I've mainly used McaFee and Kaspersky in the past, but this year I decided to try Bitdefender because PCMag and other sites said it was one of the best cybersecurity softwares available for a Mac. I don't know much about cybersecurity, but when comparing Bitdefender to McaFee and Kaspersky, I'd have to say that it is the most user friendly and stable. It also doesn't seem to have any affect on my computer's performance.

    This is a program I like very much. It is fairly easy to navigate and I believe does a good job with the protection. What is really great is that this one purchase will protect all types of devices - PC, Mac & Android. I did not have to purchase different packages to cover an array of devices as we have all three platforms to cover. Its also fantastic that 5 devices can be covered with one purchase.

    I've been using Bitdefender for about 2 years now. I really love this software. It's light on my CPU and the wallet feature is great for saving my passwords. There's a great File Shredder feature that permanently deletes files. I also enjoy that I can control everything from my iPhone using the Bitdefender mobile app. There is also a VPN feature that is nice to take advantage of.

    I had a small issue at the beginning which dealt with me inadvertently misspelling/typoing my email. After about ten minutes we figured it out. The tech was really awesome and the fact that it was 2130 on a Sunday, was really cool. They picked up within a minute and assisted me with my situation. I'm able to have five devices protected. We have two cells, a laptop and a PC. Very well worth the investment!

    Freezes up, doesn't perform a full scan, detects devices stealing WiFi but gives no access to remove those unauthorized users or stop them. I got something in my phone now that's messing it up and who knows, I didn't have as many problems with it as I do now.. I wasted hard earned money on this and please don't waste your money like I did... I would had rated it zero stars honestly

    Top notch Antivirus

    There is a reason BitDefender is recommended by so many websites, it's because it doesn't slow your compute to a crawl and works well. According to AV-Comparatives, BitDefender consistently works flawlessly in real world performance tests, which is why I have found this antivirus to be the perfect fir for me. If you want something that will protect your computer and minimize resource usage then look no further.

    Good for the price I dont use my laptop much usually use my smartphone but when I do I can count on not getting a virus and easier than other products I used in the past unfortunately stores changes their products around so it's hard to stay with one brand and hard to keep something if you dont see in stores

    While it got great internet reviews, it apparently has a super agressive antivirus. When i loaded it, my computer actually started chugging and i could not use almost any of my settings. I had to return it to best buy and spend a good deal of time figuring out how to remove it from the computer ( by downloading a removal from Bitdefender)

      Hello. As long as the minimum system requirements are met this shouldn't happen unless there are compatibility issues with other antivirus solutions, or actual malware that Bitdefender found and is trying to remove. If you'd like to give us a second shot we can help you set up a trial Bitdefender subscription and show you that it doesn't have to slow down your PC at all. You can reach out to us at bitsy@bitdefender.com BitDefender

    Was running Malwarebytes and Webroot and wanted to try something different so I bought this. It seems slower, I am running it on Windows 10 and Windows 7. Have not set up vpn yet but I will use a stand alone program for that, otherwise I am not having any issues as of yet.

    I like the fact that I am completely safe with this product on up to 5 devices. I run it on my Samsung Note 8, HP laptop and Dell desktop. I highly recommend this software as it is minimal in its efforts and does not take over my computers.

    Bitdefender Total Security was purchased for 3 Apple products (1 Mac desktop, and 1 Mac laptop, and 1 iPad) and 2 Windows products(1 windows 7, and 1 windows 10). Has been working excellently for all. Occasional lag, but not particularly noticeable. We are pleased with our product.

    Can be a bit overwhelming if you're going to customize the default setup. Running on win 7 and win 10. Took awhile to figure out but no big issues. Can tax your system a bit is it's low resourced. If that's the case run the free version so it doesn't bog you down

    I am coming from Norton and I must say I am impressed. I love the malware protection as well as the fraud prevention. And the VPN was a plus. You can't be to careful out in the world wide web. The performance settings help optimize my PC. Worth checking out.

    So far so good. Everytime I go to my bank's website, it takes me to a protected private page which is great. On top of it, I can control who can hack into my webcam which is a plus considering all the scary stories of hacked webcams.
