Bitdefender Antivirus Plus
How are TSA Scores determined?
The Software Authority strives to be different! Our results are based on factual data and you will never see a non-certified product that you never heard of being rated highly for the sole purpose of pushing sales like we often see on other review sites.
With increasing computer processor speeds being able to handle heavy workloads and improving performance significantly, TSA Scores are focused more on how well a security product protects your system from malware, viruses, and threats as opposed to how much system impact does this security product have. Reality is, if you obtain a nasty Ransomware virus as an example, does having a product that uses limited computer resources matter if you can no longer access your computer?
The TSA Score is determined by analyzing the latest review data from multiple independent testing laboratories, other reputable third party review sites and our many years of experience in the security software industry. The results from these sources are then inputted into a proprietary formula that determines the final TSA Score.

Active Threat Control
We use an innovative technique called behavioral detection to closely monitor your active apps. When Bitdefender Antivirus Plus detects anything suspicious, it takes instant action.
A race car that is also an impenetrable armored vehicle? Well, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus may be just that. It’s incredibly powerful and ultra-fast at the same time — in more than one way. Our revolutionary technologies ensure instant reaction to malware, as well as pure performance from your system. It’s what lies under the hood that makes Bitdefender so fast and easy to use.
Once switched on, Autopilot will run your entire cyber-security by itself. It makes optimal security decisions without asking for your input through nagging pop-ups and dialog boxes. Nothing to set up, nothing to configure.
This innovative, exclusive technology helps Bitdefender Antivirus Plus adapt to the hardware and software configuration of your system to save computing resources and improve speed and performance.
We at Bitdefender know that you want to protect what is really important in your life. You want to choose what to share with the world and what to keep from prying eyes. That’s why Bitdefender Antivirus Plus incorporates tools and features that make it impossible for hackers, data snoops and all kinds of malicious programs to invade your private life.
Worry-free and fast online
Bank and shop from a unique, dedicated browser that secures your transactions to prevent fraud. Bitdefender Safepay can now also automatically fill out credit card details in billing fields.
Social Network Protection
Stay safe from malicious links and any threats that your friends may unwittingly pass on to you via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or other social networks.
You can place sensitive documents under special protection from malicious encryption programs that demand ransom on your personal files.
Some sophisticated viruses, like rootkits, need to be removed before Windows starts. When Bitdefender Antivirus Plus detects such threats, it reboots the computer in Rescue mode for cleanup and restoration.
Bitdefender Antivirus Plus sniffs and blocks websites that masquerade as trustworthy in order to steal financial data such as passwords or credit card numbers.
Our advanced filtering system warns you whenever you visit websites that may try to scam you, such as casinos, porn sites, money loan schemes and others.
Find out whether your search results are safe to access before you actually click on a link. Bitdefender Antivirus Plus also blocks known infected links.
When scanning takes place in the cloud there is virtually zero impact on your local resources, which means your system’s speed and performance remain unaffected. And your files always remain completely private: we only scan data signatures, not the actual contents of your files — which are never uploaded or stored in the cloud.
Game, Movie and Work Modes
Bitdefender Antivirus Plus detects when you play, work or watch a movie, so it knows not to bother you with unnecessary requests. This way you can focus on what’s important. Depending on what you choose to do on your computer, Bitdefender temporarily halts pop-ups, adjusts visual settings and pauses unimportant background activities to allow you to enjoy your device to the max.
This useful, intelligent feature saves battery life for laptops and tablets by temporarily tweaking system settings such as display, system cooling, system updates or Bluetooth connectivity.
Store your passwords, credit card information and other sensitive data in a secure vault for easy access whenever you need them. Password Manager gives you the option to autofill online forms and can even recommend secure passwords.
Use this tool when you wish to delete a file for good and leave no traces that it ever existed on your PC.
It’s pure freedom: just turn Autopilot on, and it will run all your cyber-security by itself, hassle-free. Without pop-ups, dialog boxes or hundreds of options to go through, you’ll be able to focus on your work and on having fun.
