Bitdefender Antivirus Plus Features and Benefits

With the proliferation of technology and the internet, the significance of security tools has further been highlighted. Just as you need to protect your physical assets every day, you should also secure your digital world with a strong antivirus.

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus has gained a reputation for top-level security against a variety of malware and viruses. Its features, however, are not limited to just that. The Plus version of Bitdefender Antivirus boasts more features, some of which are considered rare in an antivirus.

Among them are stronger security for online transactions, password management, and even a VPN! In this article, we intend to subject this powerhouse of software to scrutiny, showing you its most useful features and advantages.

1) Security Features

Being light and powerful is the Holy Grail of all antiviruses, and Bitdefender Antivirus Plus has managed to incorporate both of these characteristics perfectly. It utilizes an incredibly large malware directory and machine learning to fully secure your device against all potential malware. 

In addition, it carries the scanning in the cloud, which greatly reduces its burden on your CPU and other computer resources. As a result, you will not experience any tangible slowdown during full computer scans.

Real-Time Protection

A good antivirus should be able to engage in an active scan of files to which your system gains access. Bitdefender Shield is designed to do exactly that. By default, it scans potentially unwanted applications, network shares, keyloggers, boot sectors, and more. It also allows you to fine-tune the scans to your desired settings. 

Various tests have been conducted to evaluate the efficacy of the Real-Time Protection feature. Fortunately, they all point to a remarkably powerful performance in virus and malware detection. Using this feature in Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, you can rest assured that the security of your digital assets is in strong hands.

Anti-Phishing/Web Protection

Another important aspect of your computer’s security is related to the online world of websites. Phishing is still a great security threat in the online space, according to credible sources. In that respect, Bitdefender’s anti-phishing protection is implemented to keep an eye out for the websites you visit. 

Suppose there is a website that has been listed as malicious or blacklisted. In that case, Bitdefender will block your access to the website in order to prevent any dangerous malware from entering your computer. 

If you are doubtful about the blocked websites, Bitdefender has a notification screen where you can see the blocked sites and the reason for them. This way, you can make permanent exceptions about websites you consider safe. After that, the Web Protection tool will not block the desired website, and you can enjoy the contents in it at any time. Even the possible malware hidden in downloadable links cannot escape the detective eyes of Bitdefender Antivirus Plus. This will give you peace of mind when surfing the internet.

2) Password Manager

In the chaotic world of online shopping and platforms, barely can anyone keep up with the sheer number of passwords for each website. Therefore, it is advisable that you let a secure password manager take care of the job.

If you are not into professional password-managing tools and are looking for a basic yet secure platform, Bitdefender’s password manager will certainly meet your expectations. It has implemented the fundamental features of a password manager. Some of these include unlimited password storage, multi-device sync, and auto-save and auto-fill. Keep in mind that for this last feature, you will need to install Bitdefender’s password manager browser extension.

3) System Optimization

Bitdefender doesn’t content itself with features revolving around security. Its comprehensive package of features addresses your system’s optimization as well. Using the “OneClick” optimizer, Bitdefender will proceed to get rid of unnecessary files from your device to ensure the swift processing of your required tasks. 

Such unnecessary files include but are not limited to windows junk files, recycle bin files, browser history, and temporary system files. Using the System Optimization tool, you can free up some space on your drive and potentially increase your system speed.

4) Safepay Feature of Bitdefender Antivirus Plus

With an increasingly large number of online transactions comes the risk of your personal information being stolen by hackers. Bitdefender covers users in this aspect as well. Its secure web browser (aka Safepay) gives you maximum protection while making online transactions. We can list the benefits of using Safepay as follows:

  • Safepay Keeps your personal information safe from hackers that attempt to access your computer remotely.
  • Being in sync with Bitdefender’s password manager, Safepay makes sure that hackers cannot find a way into your passwords.
  • It prevents you from taking snapshots of your screen. That way, hackers can’t take a snapshot of your personal information either.
  • Safepay also allows you to use a virtual keyboard, which will minimize the chance of your password getting hacked.
  • It can turn on the built-in VPN, which we will discuss in the next feature.

5)Bitdefender’s Built-in VPN

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus has a built-in VPN connection (as if the extra features we have mentioned so far were not enough to set this antivirus tool apart). These days, the importance of a Virtual Private Network connection is beyond obvious to everyone. From accessing blocked content to changing your IP for better security, there is a plethora of reasons you should consider having a VPN on anytime you connect to the internet.

Bitdefender uses Hotspot Shield as its built-in VPN. It lets you benefit from extra security in your daily access to the internet. Despite the limited server network and functionality, the built-in VPN meets your expectations while using strong 256-bit AES encryption and other useful features.

You have to keep in mind, however, that the free version you get with most Bitdefender plans is less functional and limited to 200 MB of daily usage. On the other hand, Bitdefender’s Premium plan provides you with unlimited VPN browsing data and better connection speed.

Conclusion of Bitdefender Antivirus Plus

With malware and hackers looming in the shadows, everyone should undoubtedly invest in a powerful antivirus to keep their information safe. Bitdefender Antivirus Plus boasts a comprehensive package that promises to ensure your digital safety on several fronts. In this article, we presented five reasons that could convince you to use Bitdefender Antivirus Plus for your daily online protection. Feel free to give try to up your computer’s security rate.
