Your BullGuard protection is transitioning to Norton

Recently, the BullGuard brand, products, and services became part of NortonLifeLock, alongside brands like Norton and Avira.

Now, BullGuard products and services are transitioning to Norton, meaning people everywhere can benefit from award-winning Norton protection.

Please note: With this change we have stopped selling BullGuard products and services, and we will no longer support BullGuard products following this transition.

Over the coming months, BullGuard customers will have the opportunity to migrate to a more robust Norton product at no additional cost.
I’m looking to buy a BullGuard product/service, but I’m only finding Norton products/services. Why is that?

We invite you to meet Norton — the #1 top-of-mind Cyber Safety brand globally.* Norton is trusted by millions of people around the globe and offers a robust portfolio of products and services to help keep you Cyber Safe, including Norton™ 360 Deluxe.

There is still BD free (y)
And Kaspersky (Security Cloud) free.

From that article:
Going forward, we may see the merging of antivirus code bases that I mentioned. It’s possible that the Norton name may get added to product branding. One or more of the independent brands might even disappear over time. But in the short run, I don’t expect users of Avast, AVG, Avira, or Norton to notice any significant changes.
We could have an Avast/AVG/Avira by Norton as free version with all the same code base, a kind of Norton Free.
With advertising, that if you want to improve protection, you can pay for Norton.
Only time will tell, but it is not a good sign that BullGuard stops to exist, or like @Popolitus said, went PC Tools...

Sad news , liked Bullguard while i used it.

but whatever WD is good enough.
Yes I see more and more people stick with MD. It works good and it is part of the OS. That unfortunately, killed many of the smaller antivirus companies.

It has been reported that by the end of the month the majority of old BullGuard customers will be directed to Norton.
