Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review

Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review

Bitdefender is easy to download from the Mac App Store and, after you’ve granted it access to your security settings in System Preferences and full disk access, it’s set to go. It updates itself automatically with new virus definitions, and you can choose between a Quick or a Deep Scan. You can also select to scan files and external volumes from a specified location. The application also includes a robust anti-theft tool that allows you to locate your device, set an alarm, remove its items from its location, and prevent it from connecting to wifi networks.

It also has a knowledge base online that includes articles and videos. A quick custom scan on my test device took less than 5 minutes. It’s also one of the few programs that offer vulnerability scans which scans your device for obsolete programs as well as weak passwords.

Overall, Bitdefender is one of the most reliable malware scanners. It consistently gives impressive results in independent laboratory tests. It home provides unbeatable spyware detection rates and a wide array of security features, including a password manager and parental controls. It also offers machine protection in a lot of its business plans, a major bonus compared to competing services.

Bitdefender’s interface is simple to navigate and breaks down its features into three categories: Privacy Utilities, Protection, and Privacy. Protection deals with things associated with the majority of antivirus software including real-time protection such as firewall monitoring, and ransomware countermeasures. Privacy is concerned with ways to be secure when browsing the internet. For example a safe browser that runs websites in an sandbox is designed to protect against malware infecting your browser. The Utilities category contains optimization tools as well as other useful utilities.
