Editors' Review


The free version of Bitdefender's Mobile Security app keeps your Android device safe with a Malware Scanner, Application Audit, and Remote Geolocation. It shares an interface and basic features with a Premium version that adds a secure Web browser and additional privacy and anti-theft measures. The free app downloads with the Premium app's features activated during a trial period. However, we tried only those features available in the free version. Bitdefender Mobile Security's free app runs in Android 2.2 and above; we ran it in Android 4.3.

Bitdefender Mobile Security installed quickly and easily. We verified our device's name and our account information, and opened a home screen displaying our device's status and buttons for the Malware Scanner, Privacy Advisor, Web Security, and Anti-Theft tools. We opened the Malware Scanner, which includes an Autopilot feature that automatically scans new apps. You can disable it, if necessary. Our initial scan took about 20 seconds and found one piece of suspected malware. Whatever real threat it posed, we didn't need it, so out it went. We also opened the Global Settings and set an Anti-Theft PIN. The Event Viewer logs scan results in plain English sentences. Bitdefender's cloud-based definitions and scanning (or pre-scanning) technology supposedly reduces battery drain. All we know is that it never slowed us down.

Android security apps have come a long way in a short time, but so have the malware, spyware, and "worse"-ware (as in the more you rely on your phone or tablet, the worse off you'll be when, not if, trouble finds you). Bitdefender Mobile Security's free app is free, as in "no cost." Any excuses?

"Consumers Need Protection from Bitdefender!"

* Bitdefender Mobile Security worked great as a TRAIL subscription.
* Bitdefender's android app uses less of your mobile device's resources (ie. RAM) than any other anti-virus app.


* Activation to a PAID Subscription is a very complicated ordeal that always failed.
* Bitdefender Customer Service is terrible and unhelpful. They offer polite excuses and false promises. Multiple emails and phone calls failed to correct activation issues.
* Bitdefender does not honor its "30-Day Money Back Guarantee". I requested a full refund. Bitdefender emailed confirmation of refund in process. Two weeks later, no refund. Forced to file claim with PayPal.


Re: Bitdefender Failed to Deliver Paid Subscriptions and Failed to Correct Issue
* I installed the trial version of Bitdefender Mobile Security on my Samsung Note 4. I liked the Bitdefender app. So, I bought two subscriptions: one each for my Note 4 and Note 3 mobile phones. HOWEVER, Bitdefender robbed me!
*** BITDEFENDER DID NOT DELIVER TWO SUBSCRIPTIONS. My account at the Bitdefender website shows only 1 subscription.
*** Bitdefender PAID subscription FAILED TO ACTIVATE ON MY NOTE 4.
*** Several times, I contacted Bitdefender customer service by phone and email. Bitdefender representatives promised to correct the problems. But the problems still persist.
*** By email and phone call, I demanded a full refund pursuant to Bitdefender's 100% Money-Back Guarantee within 30 days. I demanded the refund within the 30-day period. BUT Bitdefender has not issued a refund.
