Bitdefender 2018 Internet Security / Antivirus Plus / Total Security + Crack

Bitdefender distinguishes itself with the simplicity of use – even the less experienced user, thanks to the autopilot function can use the program. When the Autopilot function works, Bitdefender makes security decisions.  Thanks to dynamic control of detection, you can follow all running processes. Bitdefender also marks suspicious activity, so the user can track the level of protection of his computer. The built-in scanner will detect the smallest threats on your computer and scan all connected external devices.

As the company behind one of the most effective antivirus engines around, you might expect Bitdefender to charge a premium price. But you’d be wrong: Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition gives you all the core functions you need, completely unrestricted, for no charge at all.

Your Windows, Mac or Android device gets real-time protection to find and block known threats as they appear, while behavior monitoring technologies can identify even brand-new and undiscovered threats.

Web filtering isn’t forgotten, or (as with Avira) mostly left to browser extensions. Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition monitors your browsing and blocks access to malicious, phishing and fraudulent websites.

Understanding what you don’t get with a free product is also important, and the key omission here probably supports. You can browse Bitdefender’s website for help with issues, but otherwise, you’re on your own.

You’re also missing out on extra layers of ransomware protection which enable controlling access to your key documents. This isn’t a critical problem – Bitdefender Free should still detect and block ransomware, either by its signature or general behavior – but it may leave you a little more exposed to new threats.

If this is a problem then Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2018 restores tech support, adds the anti-ransomware tools and throws in online banking protection, wireless network scanning, a password manager, file shredder, and more. A one-year, one computer license costs £19.99 ($28).

Features

Just about every antivirus company around claims their software is simple and straightforward, but Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition pushes this to the extreme with an interface which has barely any options at all.

Could there be any complexity to the settings, we wondered? Nope. An Events tab acts as a program log. A Quarantine section lists quarantined files. An Exclusions tab allows excluding falsely flagged files from detection. Finally, a Protection tab enables antivirus protection to be temporarily turned off. You’ll understand what’s on offer in under a minute, and many users may never check the Settings area at all.

Even Bitdefender‘s system tray icon keeps options to a minimum. Right-click some antivirus icons and you’ll get nested menus of handy shortcuts – Bitdefender’s menu has a single item: ‘Show’.

While this seems feeble at first glance, use the program for a while and it begins to make sense.

Run scans, for instance, and Bitdefender displays a status line and (eventually) its results on the main console. Run other scans and their results are also added to the list, recent threat detections are added as you go, and over time the console gives you a convenient at-a-glance view of recent actions. You can click a currently running action to view its status or cancel it, and clicking a previous scan will show you any files it detected and what happened to them.

  1. This is a very basic interface, but it works.
  2. Bitdefender’s web filtering also worked well in our testing.
  3. If there is an issue here, it’s the lack of any form of configuration.

Protection

  • Bitdefender products are generally loved by the independent testing labs, where they almost always appear at or near the top of the rankings.
  • AV-Comparatives’ Real-World Protection Test is a tough benchmark for assessing how top antivirus products will perform in real life. That’s a consistency you’ll rarely see elsewhere.

Final verdict

An accurate and reliable ‘set and forget’ antivirus, perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to spend time and effort managing security themselves.
