Last Customer Reviews: Windows Defender vs Bitdefender

Jake
I just completed my upgrade of the Windows Defender anti-virus. I must say, it is cool, but I can hardly tell the difference between the versions.. Good firewall service but not so user-friendly interface.
joseph
Windows Defender will immediately scan any external device that is placed on your computer, it is a nice idea, but then I think the developer should upgrade the software to identify devices that it has previously scanned, so it doesn’t keep scanning a device more than once daily. My own thoughts tho…the firewall service is also commendable.
jenna
I am so happy to have this software. Free and I have no viruses! However, my laptop overheats from time to time...
mandy
There are so many features coming with my purchase! and they all work properly. A+!

I am currently making use of the 30 days money back guarantee ( I paid but I plan to cancel if anything goes wrong) and I must say I am pleased with what I have seen so far. At first tried it out with no intention of going premium. But with all there is, premium, here I come.

Over the years, I have been using kaspersky and recently decided to try something different…it was bitdefender. I don't know about others but my experience with it so far has been simply great... and for such a price. I recommended it to a few persons around and would continue to do it.
