    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.

    My Norton Antivirus expired so I decided to try Bitdefender. I had heard good things about the suite. It was a digital install, quick and easy. One important note though, you cannot have any other type of services by other vendors installed or this will not install. I had a few different Norton products installed and had to uninstall even the ones which hadn't expired in order to install Bitdefender. I just installed this product today so don't much experience with it as of yet but I will update this review in a few weeks after having had some time to see how everything is working Pros - Easy install Cons - The VPN service is limited to only 200mb and the unlimited costs $39 (Luckily I have NordVPN and wasn't made to uninstall it to use this) - Makes you install other useful products that aren't covered by this product

    Install was very fast on my laptop. It scans your system while installing. Once done, there was an update. I had to enable the "ransomware remediation" option, which protects and fixes if you want to prevent one of those new ransomware that encrypt your data for a payment. I also enabled the automatic profiles as I game a lot on my laptop, so it automatically detects if you are gaming or playing a movie and not annoy you with messages or interruptions. Footprint of the interface seems very light, it did not notice any slow downs on my laptop, granted its a 6 core one, however with only 8 Gigs of ram, and it was still fast and no slowdowns. Its a great solution and you can install it in as much as 5 devices, including Macs!

    I love BitDefender because it's easy to install and use. I haven't had a problem with red notices saying my computer was going to be "frozen" since installing it. Thank You.

    Easy to install and does everything we need it to. It was put on a laptop for an 8 year old and we needed something we knew would work. Birdefender does!

    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.

    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.

    Best software, VPN service is costly, easy install

    Bitdefender Total Security 2019 is a top line security suite which includes just about everything you need to protect Windows, Mac, Android and iOS devices. Installing the Windows version gets antivirus, firewall, spam filter, malicious website blocking, banking protection, parental controls, a password manager, file encryption, secure file deletion, PC cleanup and optimization...wow that is a lot. The VPN service is free but for only 200MB...which is truly useless...it cost $39 for unlimited and while costly, in today's hack run environments it is pretty cost effective for peace of mind. The included Ransomware Remediation, is a protective layer which should help detect ransomware activities and backs up targeted files until the malicious processes can be closed. Network Threat Prevention is new technology which aims to prevent malware exploiting vulnerabilities on your device to launch attacks. Bitdefender's Autopilot system is now smarter, offering smart recommendations to optimize protection to match how you use your devices. A new dashboard makes install rather straightfirward and easier to use. Overall I like, love the software suite especially on my mobile devices. I install and leave it to do its security features with no slowdown my activities.

    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 installed this on one device, and decided not to install on anymore after using it. I installed this on a google laptop, real easy to set up, download and install. Once installed I started the configurations, I set up a parental account, I liked that I could put different child accounts and set them up to what privacy settings I wanted for each child. Than I tried to set up all the main privacy settings. I tried to activate the anti-theft and no matter what it doesn't activate. That's my main problem with it. The virus scan works, I knew I didn't have any due to it is a brand new laptop so the scan said no viruses. Everything else seems fine with it. Because the anti-theft feature didn't work on my laptop I decided not to install on any other devices, that is great feature to have without it working I don't feel I have everything out of this Security service.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
