Microsoft Defender Exploit Protection On or Off?

Does anyone know if this needs to be on? It seems since I Have Bitdefender I would not need the exploit protection from Microsoft. Default it is on, but would think if it needs to be disabled Bitdefender would do that, thus confused.

I have had a lot of issues on my laptop and my desktop running an app and wonder if this could be a problem clashing with Bitdefender. I have not had an issue like this in many many years.

Thanks to all,

Be well
