Security tailored to your experience level
Bitdefender Total Security 2018 is an impressive security suite that protects your system from every angle. It includes an anti-virus, personal firewall, backup solution, network management tool and more.
The Bitdefender Total Security interface is very easy to use. The Home area is well laid out and the default setting is an automatic feature called AutoPilot, so less experienced (or interested) users can avoid the technicalities. If you delve into Bitdefender Total Security's Settings, however, you'll find a fantastic array of configuration options that can be tweaked at either a general or advanced level - just browse between the areas and tabs to discover them all.
About Bitdefender Total Security's tools: they cover pretty much everything in terms of computer safety – from simple, daily tasks like scanning a file you just downloaded from the internet to once-in-a-while system optimization. Bitdefender Total Security also has the usual real-time protection, firewall and tune-up options you would expect from a modern security suite, while it rounds out the offering with nice extras like parental controls, antispam filters, and personal privacy controls.
Bitdefender Total Security also includes special Games and Laptop modes. The first one opens the firewall to prevent connection issues and disables any resource-intensive processes while maintaining a safe, fun gaming experience. The latter temporarily tweaks security settings to prevent the antivirus from draining the computer’s battery.
If you're looking for a one-stop security solution, Bitdefender Total Security is an excellent option. If you are looking for a free alternative we recommend you to download Avira Free Security Suite and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Bitdefender Internet Security is also an interesting product too, but you will need to purchase a license key after the trial period to get the activation code.
