Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review

Bitdefender is among the top antivirus scanners on Mac that has consistently high malware detection rates, as well as many other beneficial security features. It’s not without imperfections.

The default interface is simple to navigate and divides features into 3 categories: Privacy, Security, and Utilities. The Protection tab is a focus on the features you would expect from an antivirus suite, such as real-time scanning, firewall monitoring and ransomware countermeasures. The Privacy tab provides ways to remain safe on the internet, such as a secure web browser that runs websites inside the sandbox to prevent malware from infecting your normal browser. The Utilities tab includes optimization tools as well as an application that shreds files using exclusive algorithms and renders them unrecoverable in the event that they are deleted.

Other features are included in premium plans, like a simple password manager, as well as a solution called Anti-Tracker that can stop excessive tracking by a variety of web-based services. The program includes a vulnerability scanner that can spot outdated software, weak passwords, or Windows updates that haven’t been applied. It also provides a fast custom scan which only takes five minutes and is faster than other competitors such as Norton and TotalAV.

The only issue with the application is its slow installation which can be a hassle for users who want to start right away. In addition the application’s “Reveal in Finder” option doesn’t work this is a bizarre decision for an antivirus software that competes with rival solutions that can do similar things in just few clicks.
