Bitdefender is the top choice if are looking for an antivirus solution with high rate of detection of malware and has minimal impact on the performance of your system as well as reasonable pricing. It also has unique features like a file shredder and microphone and camera protection, that block suspicious requests to your camera or microphone.
An easy-to-use antivirus program is another important aspect. Both Avast and Bitdefender are fairly straightforward to navigate, but we found that Bitdefender was a bit more difficult to navigate when it comes to running scans. It took us longer to locate the settings we required to set up a full scan or a boot-time scan was a little difficult.
Bitdefender’s support is superior to Avast. The phone support is available in an array of languages and its knowledge base is vast. Avast however, on the contrary side, limits its phone support to customers who pay and relies on its knowledge base and forums.
