Compare Bitdefender and Avast

October, 03 2023

The internet isn’t what it was a few years ago it’s a huge ocean filled with all sorts of online threats, eager to breach your privacy or steal your financial information and the list goes on. In the year that ended in March, there were over 7 million new JavaScript malware viruses discovered. It is essential to keep your anti-virus software updated. Both Avast and Bitdefender offer a number of features that will help you do just that with a vulnerability scanner which can let you know the programs that are out of date and a software updater which automatically keeps all your applications up-to-date to provide the best protection.

If, however, you’re looking for an antivirus program with high malware detection rates, minimal impact on system performance, and a reasonable price, then Bitdefender is a clear winner. It also has unique features such as a file shredder and microphone and webcam protection which denies any suspicious requests to your camera or microphone.

An easy-to-use antivirus program is another important factor. Avast and Bitdefender both have a relatively simple interface, however Bitdefender is a little more complicated when it runs scans. It took us a while to locate the settings, and it was a challenge to set up a full or boot-time scan.

In terms of support, Bitdefender’s customer support is more impressive than Avast’s. The phone support is available in many languages, and its knowledge base is extensive. Avast however, is able to limit its support options to paid customers and heavily relies on its knowledge base and forums.
