Solved.The announcement was there till few hours ago. The BD admin could have moved the announcement
I have never seen notifications or a pop-up window when it blocks a virus in beta stage, maybe now in the final version ?!
I received a response from BD:There are notifications but they show up with the huge delay.
Thinking about it now, this is probably why I didn't receive any notifications.I received a response from BD:
Bitdefender Antivirus Free shows a notification in the lower right hand of the screen when a malware is blocked (see the attached image). If you don't receive such notifications, you may want to check your system settings. On Windows 10, we use the Windows action center notification system. Make sure you have app notifications enabled in Start > Settings (cogwheel) > System > Notifications and actions. Make sure notifications are enabled globally, and for Bitdefender in particular. After making these changes, Bitdefender will pop-up on your screen each time it blocks something.
And yes my Notifications and actions were switched off, thats why i didn't have notifications
No problem for me accessing BD forums using Windscribe VPN....I mean just opening the forum pagesSolved.
Windscribe VPN is blocked from accessing Bitdefender Forums. Disabled and can view site. I'm actually questioning the purpose of a VPN for desktop, I may stick VPN on Android only.
To put it simply, That's a very good read right there. Very interesting and technologically insightful.Active Threat Control (formerly Active Virus Control) explained:
This tech is, and always was, available as well in Bit Defender Free using the same processes, libraries and drivers as the Premium products.
BD Free is the ONLY free "Bitdefender engine" program using ATC, all others having just various implementations of the BD Core and B-HAVE SDKs.
Free also utilizes all the Nimbus cloud services.
That said, there is additional protection in the Premium products, especially Internet and Total Security.
