Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review 150 150 Michael Shvarzman

Bitdefender is one of the top Mac antivirus program. It has a high level of malware detection and many other useful security features. The program does not come without problems.

The default interface is easy-to-navigate and divides features into 3 categories: Privacy, Security and Utilities. The Protection tab is focused on the features you’d expect from an antivirus program, such as real-time scanning, firewall monitoring and ransomware countermeasures. The Privacy tab offers methods to remain safe online, like a secure browser that runs websites inside an sandbox, which protects you from malware infecting your regular browser. The Utilities tab is about optimization tools as well as an application that shreds files with exclusive algorithms which render them unrecoverable when deleted.

Other features are available on premium plans, such as a simple password manager, as well as an Anti-Tracker program that can prevent excessive tracking by a variety of websites. It also includes vulnerability scanners that detect outdated apps as well as weak passwords and Windows updates that haven’t been applied. It also offers a quick customized scan that takes just five minutes, much more quickly than competitors like Norton and TotalAV.

The only downside to the app is its slow installation which can be very frustrating for those who want to get started right away. In addition the app’s “Reveal in Finder” option doesn’t work, which is a strange omission for an antivirus app that competes with rival products that can accomplish similar things in just few clicks.
