Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review

Bitdefender can be downloaded from the Mac App Store. After giving it full access to your disk and access to your security preferences in System Preferences, Bitdefender is ready to use. It updates its virus definitions on a regular basis and lets you choose between the Quick Scan, Deep Scan and a custom scan of your files’ locations or external volumes as needed. The program comes with an effective anti-theft feature, as well, that allows you to locate and sound an alarm on your device remotely, remove its contents, and stop it from connecting to wifi networks.

The program also comes with an online knowledge base that contains videos, tutorials, and a massive collection of content, and it offers excellent speed for scanning viruses – a fast custom scan took just 5 minutes on my test device. It’s also among the few competing programs to include a vulnerability scanner that scans your device for weak passwords and outdated software and also offers an efficient scheduler to run custom scans.

Overall, Bitdefender is among the best malware detection scanners consistently delivering impressive results in independent lab tests. It offers unbeatable spyware detection rates as well as a comprehensive protection package that includes features such as a password manager, fast VPN, an anti-tracker and parental controls. It also offers machine protection as part of many of its business plans. This is an important benefit when compared to other solutions.

Bitdefender’s interface is simple to use and separates its features into three categories: Privacy Utilities, Protection, and Privacy. Protection is the section of Bitdefender which focuses on the features that are common to all antivirus software, such as real time protection, firewall monitoring, and countermeasures against ransomware. Privacy concerns ways to be secure when browsing the internet. For example, a safe browser that runs websites in the sandbox can prevent malware from infecting your browser. The Utilities category is filled with optimization tools as well as other handy utilities.
