Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review

Bitdefender is easy to download from the Mac App Store and, after you’ve granted it access your security settings in System Preferences and full disk access, it’s good to go. It updates its virus definitions on a regular basis and allows you to choose between the Quick Scan, Deep Scan and a custom location scan of files or external volumes as needed. The application comes with a highly effective anti-theft function, in addition, it allows you to locate and sound an alarm on your device, then remotely delete its articles and block it from connecting to wifi networks.

It also has a knowledge base online with videos and articles. A fast custom scan on my test device took less than 5 minutes. It is also one of few rivals that include a vulnerability scan which scans your device for old programs as well as weak passwords.

Overall, Bitdefender is one of the top malware scanners. It consistently gives impressive results in independent lab tests. It offers unbeatable spyware detection rates as well as a comprehensive protection bundle that includes features such as password management, a rapid VPN with an anti-tracker and parental controls. It also includes protection for machines as part of a variety of its business plans. This is a huge benefit over other services.

Bitdefender’s interface is easy to use and divides its features into three categories: Privacy Utilities, Protection and Privacy. Protection is the section of Bitdefender that focuses on features that are standard to all antivirus software, such as real-time protection, firewall monitoring, and ransomware countermeasures. Privacy concerns ways to ensure your safety while surfing the web. For instance an internet browser that is safe and operates within the sandbox can prevent malware from infecting your usual browser. The Utilities section contains useful utilities and optimization tools.
