Bitdefender often slips in underneath the radar of the antivirus market. Bitdefender was founded in 2001 in Bucharest, Romania. Since 2001 Bitdefender have come a very long way. They are renowned their amazing features packed into their reliable and easy to use software. With Bitdefender you can cover your Mac, PC, and even your android phone! Since they started in 2001, Bitdefender have been keeping up with big boys and never failing to take the necessary steps to succeed in the hard antivirus market. But what separates Bitdefender from the rest?


Like most antivirus software, Bitdefender offer a free trial on all of their antivirus software for 30 days. Allowing you to try and test each one to see what suits you best. Bitdefender offer three different antivirus solutions. Antivirus Plus, Internet Security, and Total Security. Antivirus plus providing basic protection on 3 devices will cost you £39.99 per year. Internet security will provide more advanced protection on 3 devices for for £49.99 per year. Total Security unlike the other two provides cover on 5 devices which can be Mac, PC, and Android, but will cost you £59.99 per year.

If I could give them 0 stars I would. Good protection but they are scam artists in their pricing and billing practices. Shows one price on main page but click on Buy Now and next page shows a higher price with no explanation why. Log in to BitDefender Central to check price there and shows an even higher price. And every year at renewal time they try to auto-renew at full msrp when I didn't sign up for it. I've called their support but get nothing but run-around. I like the protection but due to the pricing, billing, and support scams I'm done dealing with them. I will find another product.

I think it’s a great product. Installed it on my new laptop AFTER what I thought was finished setup. It immediately came up with about three critical windows updates and proceeded to install them. Does a great job of keeping me informed at what programs are doing what while I’m on the computer Nuff said

I have purchased Bitdefender 2018 and have nothing but problems! I have contacted them about the VPN not connecting and the software not working correctly. They replied a couple of times but not with any resolution for my Windows tablet. This has been ongoing for a few weeks and I have asked for a refund, but now they are ignoring my requests. Very sad and not very professional. All I want is a fix or a refund please so I can buy protection that works.

I’ve been using Bitdefender for about a year and will not be renewing it. While its security is probably good, it throws up the protection screen whenever I use Capital One and makes what should be an easy project twice as long. This may be due to some error on my part, but I need tiled screens to conduct my work and cannot do this with that extra screen up.

Not overly impressed with what I have purchased here, pretty confusing piece of software.

Sandeep - 2 years ago

Protected my PC pretty quickly, don't know if that means its a really good bit of software or doesn't really do much? The jury is still out.
