When I think of the valuable files I have on my computer, like family photos, personal documents and work files, I can't stress how important it is to have some sort of protection against viruses. Viruses can cause so much damage not only to your files but also to your computer hardware. Being a daily user of the internet for my work, I needed something that could protect me online without a lot of complicated measures.
There are a lot of antivirus applications on the market that selecting the best one can be difficult. I started to look for a low-cost options that would provide me with the level of protection I needed. That's when I came across Bitdefender. At a low cost of $69.95 for one year (for the Total Security Package), I was able to purchase an all-in-one software to suit my needs. Keep in mind that the security suite is appropriate for one user or one computer only.
Several weeks after installing the software, it became obvious just how good this software was at detecting and removing threats from my computer. Here are my thoughts on this very easy-to-use antivirus.

The mark of a good malware removal software is generally found through a range of thorough tests. Upon researching, I noticed the transparency of the company's performance in a range of tests. Being tested in a large number of independent labs, the ratings have always been positive. In fact the Dennis Technology Labs rated it an AA-level certification, which is the second highest level of certification standards.
I expected a great test result in the AV-Test for Bitdefender and it definitely delivered. Ranking at a high score, the software was able to detect and block over 12,000 samples of malware in the Malwarezoo test.
The installation was smooth and easy to follow. Once installed, I did not notice any errors or major problems. However, I did have a little trouble on my computer specifically having Windows 8.1. The software was a little slow to load at times. While the level of protection is still there, I think the software requires a little more tweaking in the 2020 edition in order to keep up to match the latest Windows edition.
If you know much about Bitdefender, you should know the high standards of protection it has on every software they have developed. The Bitdefender 2020 range is one that cannot be matched by competitors.
You not only get protection from malware and viruses, but also through the Bitdefender Wallet feature, users can get further protection when banking online. This is helpful for people who want the added peace of mind when shopping and banking in the cloud.
A new feature added to the Bitdefender 2020 software is called Profiles. This is particularly handy for people like myself, who enjoy gaming and watching movies online. The Profiles feature helps detect the computers settings you have in place and what kind of activity to you are doing in order to adjust the level and type of protection you receive.
As a result, the software can flag any potential risks even ones seen in programs and online games. It's a great safety measure for my entertainment needs and one that I truly value.
With this application, you receive round-the-clock protection on your device. Upon initial installation of the software, it will also install a small desktop widget which will automatically start every time your device is on. You can adjust this setting later if you like. You will receive notifications on potential viruses as well as an up to date status report whenever you are online.
This feature is good because I knew the software was working in the background without having to do any maintenance or configurations.
The Bitdefender antivirus software lives up to the standards of the previous releases. It provides high quality protection that works seamlessly in the background of your computer. Overall, the Bitdefender's range of internet security software are a great selection for those who are looking for protection against viruses, malware and identity theft. At the small cost of less than $5 a month, it's an option well worth exploring.
