I have an Acer Chromebook. I use Bitdefender Total Security on my two Windows computers. Is there a version I can use on the Chromebook? Anything from the app store? Any suggestions?

    Bitdefender Total Security is not compatible with Chromebooks. Only Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android are compatible.

    This is because Chromebooks use the Chrome operating system, which is a lightweight operating system that is designed for security and simplicity. Bitdefender Total Security is a powerful antivirus and security suite that is designed for more traditional operating systems. It would be too resource-intensive for a Chromebook.

    If you are looking for an antivirus for your Chromebook, there are a number of good options available, such as:

    1) Avast Free Antivirus for Chromebook

    2) Avira Free Security for Chromebook

    3) Kaspersky Security Cloud Free for Chromebook

    4) Malwarebytes for Chrome OS

    These antiviruses are designed to be lightweight and efficient, so they will not slow down your Chromebook. They also offer a good level of protection against malware and other online threats.

    Hey, mate, didn't notice. I deleted my comment.

    Yes, the link is still valid and will be valid. 🙂
