Bitdefender total security asks for administrator password to update

On my children's computers I regularly see prompts for the administrator password to update Bitdefender. The children logins are not setup as administrators so they cannot provide it themselves.

Why does Bitdefender need an administrator password to update? If you ignore the prompt then it will continue to ask each time the user logs in.


  • Hi, is there anyone who is able to help on this issue? Can we allow users to allow the update without the administrator password? Thanks.
