I would say most major vendors have equivalent protection so use the one that does not slow down your machine, that has an interface you find simple and has the better price.

There is malware that will go through any product. The fact that A blocks malware X and B doesn't does not make A better than B. If you look for it, you'll find a malware that is detected by B and not A.

I liked that logic you said and I will do what you said, although I like ESET very much, I think I’m going to use Bitdefender because it doesn’t slow down my machine and doesn’t slow down navigation. It will be hard to leave ESET kkkk

Have you guys read that on product page?

Bitdefender’s multi-layered approach against ransomware includes a data-protection layer that safeguards your documents, pictures, videos and music against all kinds of ransomware attacks. It works with the Advanced Threat Defense module to protect your most important files from encryption by ransomware.

Am I the only one experiencing bugs at Discord? The microphone doesn't work with Bitdefender installed.

Didn't try to turn off microphone/webcam protection yet.

It works fine here, Bitdefender didnt even notify about Discord acessing the microphone because of the cloud reputation.

Some of you already know this I think. But anyway, I noticed this in one of the emails from Bitdefender. So, Bitdefender won't be releasing a new update with new features every year like many do. Instead they'll keep adding new features and changes whenever it's ready. Some other like Norton, ESET, F-Secure, etc already does this. This is better I think. No need to wait for a whole year for new feature updates.
This is the way (y)

The only thing preventing me from switching to Bitdefender is their Documents protection. It really needs automatic white listing. During the period I tested it on my personal computer it blocked Calibre's access to its library, corrupting it and making me lose all my book annotations. Fortunately, I had a recent backup. It also blocked all games I tested from writing to the Documents folder causing an initial crash and loss of everything I did in the game.

Now imagine if I have to manually authorize every game my older son installs and uninstalls to save in Documents Folder. Notice that none of the games blocked were new. We're talking about games like Skyrim, for instance.

I could, of course, disable it but then what's the point of even having it in place?

The day they announce they have added an automated white listing to this feature; I will certainly consider switching as I had a very positive experience with it.

Bitdefender has really done it in this version!
It's one of the lightest security suites I've tried recently.
It seems their approach has changed! They stopped throwing redundant features on a product that was long plagued with bugs and instead they've trimmed it down and polished the product! They've even polished their Bitdefender Central! And It's really handy.
It's Bugdefender NO MORE.
Also recently they've added dark mode - and it looks good. Though the UI is not exactly to my taste.

Now it'll be great if they could add some advanced features -application control?- and granular controls geared towards enthusiasts and advanced users!
But hey that's the premise of Bitdefender - set and forget ! And I think it's the best out of the box for novice users.
