Bug: Settings password keeps getting reset
I have noticed that Bitdefender Total Security's settings password keeps getting reset for no reason, this happens randomly, I had to set it again like three times over this week, and I only noticed this by chance while checking my settings and finding out the toggle is off.
This is especially problematic because I can't isolate when this happens, I tried several things like restarting my computer to see if that causes this bug, but no, it happens randomly after an unknown ammount of time passed.
I have seen this bug on both my PC with Windows 10, and my dad's notebook with Windows 10. Both have the latest Bitdefender version installed and automatic update enabled.
Thank you Scott, I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem.
You're welcome, and yes, you're not alone, including me.1
I want to add a little update because I just noticed something, this may help the team solve this bug: This is more common when putting Windows to sleep.
I restarted my PC several times and the password was intact, but sleeping or hibernating made this bug occur more often. I'm on version 184.108.40.206
Thank you for your feedback. I have updated the internal case with your observations. I can see that the investigation is ongoing, but the developers should get to the bottom of this soon and they will release a new build containing the fix.
@SaurikSI here it is, I just got word that a new release is rolling out and it contains the fix.
