Why netgear armor?

Options

I have a new subscription to Bitdefender anti-virus for Mac. We recently installed the netgear Orbi. Why should I subscribe to Netgear armor, powered by Bitdefender?

    If you have subscription to bitdefender MAC, you are well protected and do not need Netgear Armor.

    Netgear Armor is similar to bitdefender BOX. Netgear Armor in simple terms act as router which has inbuilt protection provided from bitdefender allowing you to surf the internet without any hassle. That means, it will protect your PC, MAC, Laptop from phishing & malicious website and block malicious files download on your device.

    It also protects your home from hackers that can access your wireless electronic devices.

    But since you already have MAC subscription, you do not need to worry. You are already protected.

    Additionally, Netgear Armor includes bitdefender total security subscription, that means, all type of OS devices be it MAC, Windows, iOS, Android are protected under one license.

    To add on top of this, I already have BitDefender AV on a few of my PCs. I just got thre netgear Orbi and am using the trial of Armor. Should I let my personal subscription to BitDefender AV expire and switch over to the Armor version? The Armor version seems more complete than what I've purchased.

    If so, It looks like I have to uninstall bitdefender, then install the Armor version of it. Is that correct?

    And if so, what about my online Bitdefender account - what do I do about that?

    Funny timing too - my personal bitdefender subscription expired yesterday.


    Thanks,

    Jeff M.

    Netgear Armor is not a product of bitdefender. It is a product developed by netgear in partnership with bitdefender for netgear armor router to provide online security to its users.

    Since your bitdefende protection has expired, you should uninstall the bitdefender product through bitdefender uninstall tool (https://www.bitdefender.com/site/view/uninstall_consumer_paid.html) .Kindly choose the correct version and download the uninstaller.

    After a successful uninstallation, kindly remove your device from bitdefender online central account (https://www.bitdefender.com/consumer/support/answer/2795/)


    Next, you can use netgear armor as your default router and since netgear armor comes with one year subscription of bitdefender total security, you can install bitdefender total security on your respective device and after a successful installation a login page will open where you will have to enter your registered login details and your new bitdefender total security product should get automatically synchronized with your online central account.


    If you still need any further assistance, kindly drop an email to bitdefender support at bitsy@bitdefender.com or contact netgear support directly via visiting netgear support website (https://www.netgear.com/support/contact.aspx)

    Response may be delayed due to less staff and covid19. Rest be assured, they will reply back asap.
