If you already own antivirus software or are looking into getting some chances, are you’ve heard of it. A lot of people and websites talk about it, but me i always get that eerie feeling that if something is getting pushed that way, you might need to take a hard look at you know past the marketing and that’s. What got me so invested in bitdefender? Is it a really good service or just a piece of coal wrapped in a fancy? Candy wrapper that’s? What this review will find out, or rather already found out, but in text form, so if you’re more of a reader type head through this link and then give this review a read, that’s also, where you’ll find the list of decent alternatives to bitdefender and well.
That could be worth checking out right. Okay, now that that’s all done with let’s get directly into the review, let’s go straight to the important things. What are the pros and cons of bitdefender payne customers receive the full extent of bitdefender’s features. So i guess i’ll start with those pros include best in class malware detection, a built in vpn, with a free version, included flexible adaptability to your device’s specs. Automated management of system updates, tracking protection, multi layered ransomware protection, a 30 day trial for the paid version and customer support for both free and paid versions. Yeah. It has all that, and i haven’t even listed all of them by the way i’m just well running out of space here, but it’s not like bitdefender is perfect. I mean nobody is known. Cons are the vpn is kind of restricted. No customer support for the free version on mac os, limited functionality of ios app and a relatively high price for the paid version. Yep. It seems you’re going to have a bit of trouble if you’re an apple fan or on a budget. As for the vpn feature. Well, come on bit defender’s, not a vpn service provider, so it’s no surprise that they aren’t very good in that department. Now, while all those pros are impressive, you’ll be even more delighted to know that they mostly translate into the free version. Of course, there are a lot of things not offered in the free version, but bitdefender will protect your operating system from threats in real time and regularly update the threat database, while also preventing web attacks and frauds it’ll also tailor its performance to your hardware and software.
To not overload your os, they do all that for free. Now that we took a brief look at the pros and cons, let’s go a little bit deeper, starting with security. You ever heard of a b comparatives. You know that austrian company, that goes around testing security software to make sure privacy and security promises are upheld, well, that very av comparatives found bitdefender to be the security product of the year for four years. I know i didn’t believe it myself at first, but according to av comparatives bitdefender is so good. It blocked 100 of malware doing a whole month of testing. Not gon na lie. Didn’T see that one coming. This really is impressive. Now let’s take a look at how bitdefender managed to get such an impressive result. If i were to go into every feature of this antivirus service, this would have been an hour long, video, so let’s check out the most impressive features that make the paid version so worth it. Bitdefender’S advanced threat. Defense is what makes the most magic it’s an intricate system that monitors all processes running on your device. Now, if something seems a bit fishy, bitdefender will be right. On top of it, then we have ransomware remediation that will back up your data. If any ransomware will attempt to encrypt it, anti spam is a neat tool that sorts your email with a deep scan and identify spam, there’s also safe play for preventing malware from getting into your payment info anti tracker, which doesn’t allow any web services to harvest.
Your data, or even track your activity. Now, if you have a webcam installed, you’ll find anti webcam hijack useful. That way, no one will peep at you. Without your permission, there are also built in vpns and a password manager. The last feature i want to mention is file shredder. It completely dismantles any data on your device. Should you decide to sell it, then nobody will be able to recover the data and use it against you. So let’s ask a logical question: how much would a software with so many features cost obviously there’s a limited free version? But if you’re going to pay there are really two options: the antivirus plus package and the total security package. You can see the differences on the screen. More features mean a higher price, but casual users might be totally fine with antivirus plus or even the free version. Bitdefender itself is quite easy to use with features separated in three distinct categories: protection, privacy and utilities. Protection covers the usual antivirus stuff, real time protection firewall all that, while privacy refers to ways of staying anonymous, online, vpn, safepay and password manager all belong here in utilities, you’ll find optimization tools, profile management and file. Shredder simple enough. There is an easier way to make everything even easier, though the lite version of the free edition, which only performs a malware scan. If you run into any problems while using bitdefender, you can rely on the customer support team and i do mean rely.
The live chat, support is fast and helpful. They don’t care if you’re a free or paid user. If you have an issue, you’ll get it fixed. There are also guides on an faq section on the website that will help you. If you don’t feel, like you know, bothering an operator now, i’ve already mentioned that the ios app is quite lackluster and that’s well kind of an understatement. You do have protection against fraudulent websites, a personal data leak check and a vpn with 200 megabytes daily bandwidth. So you don’t have to be a tech genius to realize this is really not enough for decent antivirus coverage. On the other hand, the android app is completely opposite. This app mirrors the desktop one in both appearance and features. There are also android only features like app applock, anti theft and shared protection. Now before my final conclusion, let me remind you that you can subscribe to this channel for weekly videos like this one and if you enjoy this video in its conclusion, hey leave it a like now, while at first i didn’t believe the excessive chatter about bit. Defender’S quality and greatness just too much hype for one antivirus, you know, but after this deep investigation, i think we all found out that bitdefender totally lives up to its expectations. Look it’s groundbreaking security software, albeit a little more pricey than the competitors. However, most users will find even the free version satisfactory and you well.
I guess, it’s up to you what you do with all this info right. All right.
