    I find this software is easy to use and understand. It does not bog down the computer when running updates. The price was great for 5 devices plus I use Windows and Mac. I would like to see more out of the VPN.

    An easy and intuitive antivirus software

    Write a review for antivirus is probably one of the most complicated assignments ever. You never know how protected you could be until the software stop to protect you. My impression until now, with the time that I've been using it's that the protection is there. Easy to install directly from the web the software downloads all the components and helps you to uninstall the potential previous software that could be outdated. The controls, management screens and processes are super intuitive and don't need any additional help. For someone visual like me, it's super simple to identify what I am doing and what is and not activated. I appreciate also that when I've 5 licences those could be multi platform and cover all my technology with the same tool: laptops and phones. The only aspect that I disliked, same for other antivirus software are all the components that they still propose you to download (at an additional cost) to cover additional threats. Could be so nice if when you buy a complete antivirus (total security) they make you feel completed and not at an additional risk?

    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?

    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.

    Bitedefender does a great job of keeping all my electronics running smoothly. Very easy to use and install. I like the maintenance features included that are like AVG but at half the price.

    Great product for multiple devices

    This is more than just virus protection, as it has a number of other features as well, which is why I selected this product. With today's technology, it makes sense to go for the higher level of protection for my devices. Installation was straightforward, with easy to follow directions. I started with my desktop, a recent device I hadn't added protection to yet, although I did find McAfee was on there already. That actually took the longest- uninstalling that program that came preinstalled. Other than that, installation was fairly quick and easy to follow. Part of this installation includes setting up an account on BitDefender Central. Next I put it on my iPad. This was the easiest, as you just download the app and log into the account already created on the first device. I added this software to an older laptop that had previously used another program for virus protection, and installed this software in its place without difficulty. I found that scanning these three devices took less time to complete than other software I've used in the past. It also offers password management and various other security measures too. I liked that it should protect me from other internet related concerns, like assessing my computer's vulnerability to attacks and improving overall online safety. I did install a different product on someone else's computer, and theirs was a little faster, but that product is web-based, so you're not downloading files. That's the only recommendation I might make, is to have a more web-based version. This software did not slow things down like some other products, even on the older device, which is one problem I had in the past. The fact that I can use it on an iOS device, and have additional features to optimize my computer and to provide the safest possible online experience, are important selling points for me. I would definitely recommend this product due the ease of installation and use, along with excellent protection for different devices.

    Works well; Automatic Updates

    I installed the Bitdefender Antivirus software onto an Acer gaming laptop and am very happy to this point with the overall performance of the program. Since this machine is used by my family, I wanted to make sure there was little to no interaction necessary from them and this has achieved that with its ability to update, scan and do all of the work behind the scene. I have only seen minimal performance impact during the last month of having it installed. During the initial scan, it detected a couple of malware issues and was able to fix them quickly and with minimal user input. I have it scheduled to run during low or non-use hours in order to get longer scans done while nobody is using it and this has been successful as well. Lastly, I am very happy with the user interface as it is intuitive and very easy to understand and navigate. Overall, very good product!

    I have been using Bit Defender for nearly a year now and I have been very satisfied with it. It updates itself on a regular schedule so I never have to worry about doing that myself. I am always protected from the latest malware, phishing, rootkits, spam, spyware, adware, trojans, viruses, worms and keyloggers out. I have not noticed any performance hits to my computers or phones. My Note8 runs just as smoothly with the bit defender app running. When I download a new app or update, it atomically scans it for malware and lets me know that it is safe with a quick little thing on my screen (similar to when you connect to a WiFi network from your phone, the message comes up and goes away quickly). I am very happy with the protection that it provides and the how easy it is to keep updated and use.

    Bitdefender keeps on adding protection that makes you feel, that your computer is protected from every possible standpoint! They've enhanced what was already great with more robust security features such as web attack prevention, online banking protection, safety for files etc; all while quietly controlling your system but does not cause any interruptions in your normal work flow while on your computer. The software was very easy to download and install by inputting a code. It does a great job of scanning your computer for viruses, malware, adware, trojans and the like. Because of previous usage, I was comfortable installing this software which prevents lags or obtrusive interruptions, with optimal performance on my computer. I ran a speed test after installation, surprisingly my speeds were still performing at a high rate. I commend Bitdefender for the robust protection along with ease of usage which makes this a seamless process.

    BITDEFENDER PROTECTION IS GREAT

    The software was easy to install and it did so rather quickly on my Windows 10 HP touch laptop. Making adjustments to the SETTINGS was quick and most "defaults" were what I would pick. BITDEFENDER operates effortlessly in the background and doesn't interfere with operation of my touch laptop . which I'm using while on the road for an extended period of time. I like the layout of the DASHBOARD as well as the supplemental screens of the software. Easy to read and understand. I do have an issue that I can't "scroll down" the left-hand menu to see other options BELOW the "SETTINGS" submenu. I have my font set "LARGE" which causes this situation. I'm still "kicking the tires" of this software, but it appears to cover everything and more than anything I'm concerned about, like: antivirus, firewall, spam filter, malicious website blocking, PC cleanup and optimization. While BITDEFENDER has the capability to secure online banking protection, parental controls, password manager, file encryption, and secure file deletion, I'm not concerned about these areas and will not use these capabilities. I'm very concerned about spam email, but I haven't seen where BITDEFENDER is doing anything more than what OUTLOOK currently does. . But maybe I'm just not getting potential spam right now . . So . I like the product . it doesn't appear to be too invasive nor complicate the operation of my laptop. Since the software I got will support 5 devices, I will install it on my desktop when I'm off the road to see if there are any differences than what I'm experiencing on my laptop.

    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!
