Editors' Review

+

Bitdefender Total Security 2015 backs top-rated antivirus protection with fast scans and many extras designed to protect you online, like Safepay and the Bitdefender Wallet for safe and private online purchases, customizable Intrusion Detection and Web Protection, and a Vulnerability Scan for out-of-date programs. It also cleans and optimizes your PC. However, some features designed to help install Bitdefender might cause frustration.

Pros

Privacy: Bitdefender's Wallet securely stores and automatically enters online credentials. Other privacy enhancements include Parental Controls, File Encryption, Safego, and Safebox.

Protect: The Intrusion Detection feature's Permissive, Medium, and Aggressive settings let us customize alert deliveries. The Vulnerability scans found updates for programs and drivers we didn't realize needed updating.

Web protection: Online security features include Scan SSL and fraud and anti-phishing protection. The Antispam Protection tool blocks emails with Chinese (default) and Cyrillic (optional) characters, though both can be changed.

Cons

Installation woes: Bitdefender's installer automatically uninstalls any existing and conflicting antivirus and security software. This is a good idea in principle that let us down in practice by freezing up and interfering with our Internet connection.

Software incompatibility: Safepay conflicted with Acronis' scheduler. Bitdefender's installer also removed Spybot Search & Destroy.

Bottom Line

Bitdefender Total Security 2015 scans quickly and is packed with security, privacy, and performance tools that seemingly justify its purchase price. But features designed for convenience could actually discourage some users. Take our advice and uninstall any existing antivirus software before installing Bitdefender Total Security 2015.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Bitdefender Total Security 2015 18.12.0.958.

"Steer Clear"

August 18, 2015  |  By TomT1963

 |  Version: Bitdefender Total Security 2015 18.23.0.1604

Pros

None to report. Could not install Family Pack on Windows 10

Cons

Can't get technical support after multiple days. Payment processor won't give refunds (and apparently will re-up subscriptions without notice--do a google search.)

Summary

Had to escalate refund request through Paypal. Watch out for these guys.
