Premium antivirus products come fully packed with state-of-the-art features and comprehensive anti-malware defenses to protect against all sorts of malware threats.

Advanced features like file shredder, password manager, parental controls, encryption tool, VPN & and system optimizer are only included in the premium products.

With a single subscription of this suite, you can protect up to 5 devices, including Macs and smartphones.

If you have more than 5 devices in your household, go for Bitdefender Family Pack for great value for money. For just a few bucks a month, you can protect all the internet-capable devices in your household and get complete peace of mind.

  4. YliyahMessageTime on September 23, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    NONE of these are FREE … it is simply a delayed demand for payment of 30 days.

  5. XxĐěmøňxX on September 23, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Avast sucks

  6. Skyy on September 23, 2021 at 11:53 pm

  7. iKuuu yahh on September 23, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    you sound a bit like ryan reynolds

  8. First Last on September 23, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Some anti virus programs are difficult to uninstall. You can install a not so free annoying av and find your stuck with it!

  9. Luis roblox gaming on September 23, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Drop your opinon here ! What antivirus do you like the most of these?

  12. Maxtreme on September 23, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    I’m not sure if anyone else was having this issue with Avast, but I found the antivirus software to be slowing my PC down dramatically, to the point that it felt like my computer was infected with a lot of viruses. I switched to bitdefender and my pc performs much better now.

  13. Luci Antonio on September 23, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Bitdefender: I can’t play War Thunder because of it.

  14. Alfred Gerre on September 23, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Avast,avira,avg,total av.

  15. phantomcruizer on September 24, 2021 at 12:00 am

    How about "windows defender"?
    Which one of these AV’s are compatible with "Malwarebytes"?
    Ultimately you’re better off using a "Linux" distro on a bootable thumb drive!

  16. Da unframed Paul on September 24, 2021 at 12:01 am

    NONE OF THEM ARE FREE ANYMORE 🙁

  17. Beverly Nenning on September 24, 2021 at 12:03 am

  19. Card Credentials on September 24, 2021 at 12:05 am

  20. eren jaeger on September 24, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Avast is the worst 👎

  21. Sedokun on September 24, 2021 at 12:14 am

    13:37 There are no settings in the free version of the BitDefender, there is literally only ONE switch you can press – turn ON/OFF the antivirus.

  22. Edreen Baguio on September 24, 2021 at 12:14 am

    IT’S NOT EVEN FREE

  23. Aszthrotep on September 24, 2021 at 12:17 am

    only reason bitdefender does any good it locks down your computer, had a living nightmare with that AV.

  24. Don Peters on September 24, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Are there any differences between BitDefender and TotalAV (Free version and their Premium version)?

  25. Tom Ferrera on September 24, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Only Avira is free though?

  31. Tempest Stormbringer on September 24, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Avast/AVG are absolutely horrendous in privacy aspect

  32. dog bone on September 24, 2021 at 12:28 am

    The only thing free is the download, to get it to work will cost you. That’s how the scam works.

  33. majawad on September 24, 2021 at 12:30 am

    I use kaspersky free version

  34. Aaron Croose on September 24, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Don’t download Avira, it’s a fucking scam. I was unhappy with it and uninstalled it, however now I cannot use any other antivirus software since Avira has stored files on my laptop preventing me from doing that. I’ve spent 3 hours now looking for a solution

  35. Jazer Garcia on September 24, 2021 at 12:33 am

    i will try Bitdefender Free Antivirus thank you

  36. Random Guy on September 24, 2021 at 12:34 am

    AVG, AVAST are owned by the same people. and they give false positives to sell their product.

    I have been with AVG since 1998. It was one of the best free AV programs I have every come across second to nun. But the last 10 years or more it has become very annoying. It lies to you and fear mongers you every day with popups saying things that just are not true and constantly hassling me to buy more. So I did I bought the full version and it continued to be just as annoying as the free version with the same lies and B.S. So I’m done with them but every other product I have tried do exactly the same B.S. So I may just say screw windows and go back to Linux where I don’t need any of this.

  46. Frolic Sushil on September 24, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Hope it will help my pc to work a bit fine

  47. 21. Fareza Azkiya Mukti on September 24, 2021 at 12:43 am

    If i already have free mcafee on my laptop should i change to bitdefender and uninstall it?

  48. Vanoss Gaming on September 24, 2021 at 12:43 am

    McAfee LiveSafe

  49. Lil Top on September 24, 2021 at 12:46 am

    It worked for me, thank you so much for this

  50. Montana Patriot on September 24, 2021 at 12:46 am

    The fact that you have useless, BLOATWARE on your list like Norton and McAfee, shows you don’t know squat about Antivirus software.
