I have a iPhone X running on iOS 13.4
After turning on Web Protection, entire web traffic is slow or sometimes it wont work. For example, after turning on web protection Skype no longer receives new messages nor we cant send new message. The scroll goes for ever. Web browsing in Safari is also significantly slow. Because of all these network related issues, I need to keep the web protection and VPN OFF all the time. Connectivity in most of the apps are affected due to Bitdefender.
Anyone else facing this issue?
I have already reported this issue to Bitdefender team.
I have BitDefender installed on a MacBook Pro and Mac Mini. I'm pretty sure BitDefender didn't have a VPN when I first started using it. I have another VPN that I use, which I've subscribed to for several years and am happy with. I've never used the BitDefender VPN, and don't want it on my Macs using up disk space and resources. The BitDefender VPN starts up every time I start my Macs, even though I have "Run at Startup" turned off. I've uninstalled it from both Macs several times now with the BitDefender uninstaller. BitDefender automatically reinstalls the VPN within a day or so every time I uninstall it. It does this without asking, and with no indication that it's reinstalling it. It just shows back up. I've looked through the BitDefender settings, and don't see any setting I could change that would stop the VPN from being automatically reinstalled.
This is completely obnoxious and uncalled for. I'm about ready to completely uninstall all of BitDefender and switch to another product because of this - even though I have a lot of time left on my license. Is there any way to stop this ridiculous behavior?? I Googled and found others having this same issue, but none seem to have found a solution. One person said they had contacted support about this, and support said it was a known issue they were looking into - but that was last year! Ugh.
Great, I just had to reinstall Windows 10, because of a broken BitDefender!!!
After I rebooted my PC and logged in, Windows Explorer would suddenly start to flicker. I disabled all Autostart items, with no success. I rebooted into Safe Mode to uninstall BitDefender to see wheather it was causing the issue or not, but I could not uninstall it. After hours of wasting time, I decided to reinstall Windows completely.
Well, right after a fresh install, the first thing I installed was BitDefender Total Security, and rebooted. Guess what, the flickering started again. This time, I was able to uninstall it in Safe Mode. Rebooted -> Flickering didn't occur anymore.
Never ever - BitDefender! (Cool, it even rhymes)
