With the best malware detection rates for five consecutive years in a row (according to tests by various reputed antivirus labs), you are instantly covered the moment you start installing Bitdefender Antivirus Plus. Whether it’s staying protected against all forms of malware, securing your financial details with unprecedented privacy protection tools, or getting comprehensive advice to stay protected on the Internet, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus lets you do all those and a whole lot more.

Super-Intuitive User Interface

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus’s crisp user interface is intuitive like no other. The default home screen instantly lets you check, at a glance, the state of your system, with big bold letters keeping you up to date whether you are fully protected or under threat. Your manual scan options (Quick Scan and Vulnerability Scan) are also present on the Home screen, along with certain other modules such as App Protection, File Protection, and Web Protection.

Side-tabbed icons further let you access other screens such as, for example, the Privacy Modules screen, which feature useful tools such as the Password Manager, File Shredder, Parental Advisor, etc. Bitdefender Antivirus Plus also features a completely different screen that lists various system optimization tools -- Startup Optimizer, Disk Cleanup, OneClick Optimizer, etc.

Keeping Your Computer Protected

Downloading and installing Bitdefender Antivirus Plus has never been this easier, thanks to a dedicated installation wizard that walks you through each and every step. While installing, the wizard runs a comprehensive scan of each vulnerable area of the operating system for hidden malware, ensuring that the Bitdefender Antivirus Plus installation has a clear platform to start protecting your computer right from the get-go.

After completing the installation, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus deploys multiple live shields that detect all forms of malware -- spyware, adware, ransomware, rootkits, bootkits, etc. To combat instances of malware hidden in the various directories present in your computer, you can choose to either run a Quick Scan or Full Scan for a complete protective procedure.

Detecting Insecure Applications

Rather than waiting for a malicious application -- or an application with an exploitable loophole -- to start infecting your computer, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus features the ability to take the battle straight into enemy territory with its Vulnerability Scan mode. The additional scan mode is unlike any other, allowing you to check all installed applications for any security issues or loopholes that might be present.

Any insecure applications are instantly flagged for review, with Bitdefender Antivirus Plus providing various suggestions on how to fix those apps -- usually, a software update should solve most issues, but in some cases a complete uninstallation may be required. In addition, the Vulnerability Scan mode also detects any weakness in the operating system itself, notifying you instantly on the actions that you should take to resolve the issues.

Preserving Your Privacy

On the way to protecting your PC from harmful malware, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus also provides unprecedented support when it comes to preserving sensitive information -- with features such as File Encryption, Password Manager, and Safepay, you can secure your personal details quickly and efficiently. The File Encryption features provides much needed peace of mind when you have sensitive documents that you don’t want anyone else from accessing.

The Password Manager, on the other hand, lets you store passwords for the various Web portals and Web-based applications safely and securely, while Safepay allows you to enter those passwords in a sandboxed Web browser to prevent key loggers and other spyware applications from stealing them

Securing Your Connections

If you travel frequently with your laptop in hand, chances are that you would rely more on various Wi-Fi hotspots to surf the Internet. Since these networks are rife with security issues, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus presents an awesome feature dubbed the Wi-Fi Security Advisor.

By intelligently scanning any Wi-Fi hotspots that you come across for vulnerabilities, the Wi-Fi Security Advisor brings unparalleled protection for your entire Windows device, preventing you from joining insecure Wi-Fi networks. If you have no option other than to use an open unsafe Wi-Fi connection for your browsing, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus lets you use Bitdefender Safepay, where the secure Web browser’s two-way encryption should prevent anyone from spying on your laptop.

Optimizing Your PC

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus comes readily optimized for any computer right out-of-the-box, where the proprietary Bitdefender Photon engine adapts automatically to the hardware and software configurations on your desktop device. In addition, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus also provides certain optimization tools to further boost the speed of the entire operating system -- OneClick Optimizer, Startup Optimizer, and Disk Cleanup.

With the OneClick Optimizer, you can, obviously, reduce system resource consumption temporarily in just a single click, allowing resource-intensive applications to function faster than before. The Startup Optimizer, on the other hand, lets you boost the startup speeds by disabling unnecessary background applications, while Disk Cleanup removes any junk files for faster hard drive read speeds.

Is It Worth Buying?

From all the cookie-cutter antivirus utilities that flood the market, finding a malware scanner with unbelievable detection rates, blazing fast scan speeds, an insanely small system footprint, and unparalleled privacy protection features may just be the toughest thing ever.

Thanks to Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, fortunately, you don’t have to search all over anymore. With some of the toughest antivirus standards in practice, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus should take care of any malicious attacks that come your way. Not just that, but dozens of various protective modules such as Wi-Fi Security Advisor, Vulnerability Scan, and Bitdefender Safepay bring even more value to an already versatile antivirus utility.
