Protection in Bitdefender Total Security 2017


Hi,


In my experience the Bitdefender Total Security 2017 has not blocked single threat, app or attack in the past couple of months.  How can it be?  Is this your experience too?


Thanks,

    Me, neither. Maybe we've just surfed safely ?  ;)


    If you want to test BD, you can always download the Eicar test virus, from here.  http://www.rexswain.com/eicar.html


    Don't worry, it's quite safe !


  • Hi,


    Have you checked on the history of actions performed by bitdefender?


    May I verify, is the Autopilot feature active?


    If it is, that may be the possible reason for this.


    While on Autopilot, Bitdefender applies an optimal security configuration and takes all security-related decisions for you.


    This means you will see no pop-ups, no alerts and you will not have to configure any settings whatsoever.


    In Autopilot mode, Bitdefender automatically fixes critical issues, enables and quietly manages:


    ● Antivirus protection, provided by on-access scanning and continuous scanning.


    ● Firewall protection.


    ● Web Protection.


    ● Automatic updates.


    Hope this helps.


    Cheers! default_happy.png

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
