Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review

Bitdefender can be downloaded from the Mac App Store. After giving it full disk access and access to your security preferences in System Preferences, Bitdefender is ready to use. It is able to update its virus definitions in a timely manner, and you can choose between an immediate scan, a Deep Scan and a custom location scan of files or external volumes when needed. It also comes with an effective anti-theft feature that lets you locate your device and trigger an alarm, then remove its items from its location, and prevent it from connecting with wifi networks.

The program also includes a handy online knowledge base with video tutorials and a vast collection of articles, and it offers excellent virus scanning speeds — a fast custom scan took just 5 minutes on my test device. It’s also among the few alternatives that have a vulnerability scan that scans your device for outdated programs as well as weak passwords.

Overall, Bitdefender is one of the top malware scanners. It consistently gives impressive results in independent laboratory tests. It has unbeatable rates of spyware detection and a wide array of protection features, including parental and password manager controls. It also includes protection for machines in many of its business plans, a major benefit when compared to other services.

Bitdefender’s interface is simple to use and separates its features into three categories including Privacy Utilities, Protection, and Privacy. Protection is the component of Bitdefender which focuses on the common features of most antivirus programs, like real time protection, firewall monitoring and ransomware countermeasures. Privacy is about ways to ensure security while browsing the internet, like a safe browser (designed with shopping and banking websites in mind) that runs websites in a sandbox. It also prevents malware from contaminating your regular internet browser. The Utilities section contains useful utilities and optimization tools.
