Published in 2 de outubro de 2023 by

The internet isn’t as safe as it was. It’s a teeming sea swarming all kinds of online malware that wants to get your personal information, your financial data, etc. Last year alone there were more than 7 million new JavaScript malware viruses identified. It’s essential to keep your anti-virus software up to date. Both Avast and Bitdefender offer a range of tools that can help you to do this, including a vulnerability scanner which will let you know which software is outdated, and an updater for software that automatically keeps all your applications up-to-date to provide the most effective security.

Bitdefender is the top choice if are looking for an antivirus solution with high malware detection rates and minimal impact on the performance of your system as well as reasonable cost. It also has distinct features, including shredders for documents and a webcam/microphone security that blocks any suspicious requests.

Easy-to-use antivirus software is another important aspect. Avast and Bitdefender both have a straightforward interface, however Bitdefender is a bit more cumbersome when it involves running scans. It took us a while to find the settings, and it was a challenge to set up a full or boot-time scan.

As for support, Bitdefender’s support is superior to Avast’s. Its customer support phone line is able to speak many languages and its knowledge base is vast. Avast however, on its other side, limits its contact options to paying customers and relies on its knowledge base and forums.
