But doesn't norton do the same thing with their annoying popups too? However, I think I did disable most of them...

There is a setting to turn that off.

Open dashboard => settings => general => turn off special offers

it's pretty decent suite, give you parent controls on devices, and weekly reports, remote locate, etc. 15 devices for 2 years is pretty good.. I wonder if I could stack up to my current subscription...

What's the advantage of Bitdefender over Windows defender included in Windows?
I believe it will slow down the computer

Good deal (OP thanked). I've had Bitdefender for a couple of years now, it's good, but is hard on resources. It works fine on my main laptop with 12 GB RAM, but on my lighter notebooks with say 2 or 4GB RAM i use for just surfing, i definitely notice the slowdown, for them NOD32 works well.

LOL AV companies are getting desperate Face With Tears Of Joy

99.999% of people will be fine with Microsoft or Apple's built-in security and an adblocker on their browser.

Third-party antivirus software has almost zero benefit to a consumer nowadays. It still has its place in business but not for the average user.

I mean, unless you enjoy having a resource intensive data mining program on your computer for absolutely no reason.

They have these sales every couple months for years now. Just a case of inflated msrp.

Bitdefender still has one of the most comprehensive and updated virus/malware database compared to Windows defender. Also there're some useful features like parental controls, better web protection, webcam/mic monitoring.

You're being data mined no matter what, just a question of who. Windows, browsers, adblockers, antivirus programs etc are all doing it. Adblockers are even sketchier than Bitdefender.

But anyway I'd say $20/year for up to 15 devices is a good deal for those extra benefits.

What I like about Bitdefender is the app lock feature. So if my son (or my wife ;-)) takes my phone I can be sure my apps are safe.... from prying eyes. Lol

Windows defender detection rates are lower than the leading antivirus, Norton and bitdefender.

These days if you actually get a virus, you practically end up reformatting since complete removal is very difficult. Prevention from infection is the only way.

Stop living in fear. You'll be fine. Knowing how to use a computer will get you much further than any AV will.

I know the deal is over now, but would this price carry over after 2 years?

I'm currently on subscription at about $20 a year too but only for 5 users. Upping the count would be nice the next time it goes on sale.
RFD: Pick any two.
  • In stock
  • Low Price
  • Quality Product
