Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review

Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review

Bitdefender is one of the top Mac antivirus program. It has a high rate of malware detection and many other useful security features. However, the application isn’t free of flaws.

The default interface is simple to navigate and categorizes features into three categories: Privacy, Protection, and Utilities. The Protection tab is mostly dedicated to the kinds of features you’d expect from any antivirus program, such as real time scanning, firewall monitoring and ransomware countermeasures. The Privacy tab focuses on ways to stay safe online, like a secure browser that runs sites within the sandbox to guard against malware that could infect your browser. The Utilities tab covers optimization tools as well as a file shredder that overwrites files using exclusive algorithms which render them unrecoverable in the event that they are deleted.

Other features are included in premium plans, like a simple password manager, as well as a solution called Anti-Tracker that can stop excessive tracking that is carried out by various websites. The program also offers a vulnerability scan that can identify outdated applications as well as weak passwords and Windows updates that haven’t been applied. It also offers a quick custom scan which only takes five minutes and is faster than other competitors such as Norton and TotalAV.

The only drawback to the application is its slow install process that can be a pain for those who want to start right away. In addition the app’s “Reveal in Finder” option isn’t working it seems like a strange omission for an antivirus app that competes with rival products that can accomplish exactly the same thing in only few clicks.
