Bitdefender has been in business since 2001 and over the years has expanded its security software to include a host of different products for a variety of devices. Bitdefender Antivirus Plus is advanced Windows software designed to work on all versions from Windows 7 right up to Windows 10 and beyond.

It is very ease to use as it automatically makes the best security decisions for you, including for data protection, securing payments and safeguarding your privacy.

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus comes with all the features you would expect from antivirus software plus a few more. Of course protection from online threats is most important. Bitdefender active threat control blocks everything from traditional viruses, worms, and Trojans. It also blocks zero-day software exploits, ransomware, rootkits, and spyware from being installed on your device. To decrease the stain on your computer Bitdefender Antivirus includes cloud integration. All possible scanning is run in the cloud. Only your data’s signature (a footprint of the file) is scanned and sent to the cloud, no files are ever uploaded or stored. The other great thing about Bitdefender is it Autopilot feature. It provides a hassle-free experience by making optimal security-related decisions with no input from you. This means no alerts, pop-ups, and nothing to configure.

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus comes with 4 modes: Regular, Game, Movie, and Work. This antivirus software detects when you play, work or watch a movie and temporarily eliminates popups, adjusts visual settings, and pauses unnecessary background programs.

Password Manager

Usually only found in Internet Security Software Suites, Bitdefender's password manager allows you to make fast and secure payments. Each time you’re on a checkout page, the password manager automatically inputs credentials as needed.

Just got Bitdefender over a month ago. It has done it's job of blocking threats and resolving any issues it finds. I have seen a few spam popups  though from websites that Bitdefender should probably have caught like a page saying call this number now your computer is infected. I am not sure how these got passed BitDefender but I know my old virus scanning software didn't catch these type of spam messages either.

My laptop also seems to run a little slow when I am doing a full system scan. I do one every week. My laptop is 4 years old so that must be part of the problem but just as long as it is doing a good job of scanning I don't mind since it does it late at night.

Overall I like Bitdefender antivirus 2016 better than the other software I used last year. It is not perfect but it does the job.
Pros
Protects my laptop.
Cons
Slower system scan.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

On my Dell Windows 10 PC  I am using Bitdefender alongside Malwarebytes plus. I just installed the new Bitdefender for 2016 and it seems faster than before, maybe that is part of the Cloud integration. I have been using their antivirus solution for 4 years now and their file and email protection has always been really good. It has always caught viruses that get sent via email and has always warned me about fishy websites.

I plan to keep using Bitdefender.
Pros
Fast. Good at virus detection. Doesn't noticable slow down my PC.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
