Compare Bitdefender and Avast

The internet isn’t what it was a few years ago – it’s a teeming ocean that is awash with all kinds of online threats, aspiring to breach your privacy, steal your financial information and many more. Last year alone, there were over 7 million new JavaScript malware viruses identified. It is crucial to keep your anti-virus software updated. Both Avast and Bitdefender offer a variety of features to assist you in doing just that and include a vulnerability scan which will let you know what programs are in the process of being outdated and an updater for software that keeps all your applications up-to-date to provide the best security.

Bitdefender is the top choice if are looking for an anti-virus solution that has excellent malware detection rates and minimal impact on performance of your system, as well as affordable pricing. It also offers some unique features like webcam and microphone protection, which block any suspicious requests to your camera or microphone.

Another important factor is how simple it is to use your antivirus. Avast and Bitdefender both have a simple interface, but Bitdefender is a bit more complicated when it comes to running scans. It took us a while to find the settings and it was difficult to set up a complete or boot-time scan.

As for support, Bitdefender’s customer service is superior to Avast’s. The phone support is available in many languages, and its knowledge base is extensive. Avast, however, limits its contact options to paid customers and heavily rely on its knowledge base and forums.
