Bitdefender scamio

Options

I've heard about the new free service "Bitdefender Scamio", which may help discovering threats on mail, sms, etc…and seems to be very efficient , but anything about this product on Bitdefender Central. Does anybody tried it ? is it usable in security ? Does anybody knows why it's not mentionned if it's so useful ? is it too new ?

    Bitdefender Scamio uses AI to find scams online. It checks links, messages, emails, pictures, and QR codes to see if they might be tricks. However, no tool catches everything. Scamio helps a lot, but it might miss some scams since it uses AI. So, you still need to be careful yourself online. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is not true.

    Scamio is an independent product available only as a website, separate from all other mainstream Bitdefender products. This is why it is not accessible through Bitdefender Central. The primary function of Scamio is to analyze links for phishing and malicious content using AI, a feature not present in traditional Bitdefender products. Traditional Bitdefender products rely solely on blocking mechanisms updated by malware researchers.

    Hello once again,

    Thanks for the answers. I have another question : three days ago, I received an email from the adress bitdefender@hello.bitdefender.com, precisely to use Bitdefender Scamio, with a link to click on in the text of the mail. Do you know if I can trust this email adress ?

    I' ve already looked for responses on the net and on the Bitdefender forum: I've found that this email adress was legit in oct.2022, but I've almost found that there was a ransom using the email adress Hello@hello.bitdefender.com….and I can't access Bitdefender Scamio through the link you sent me in your previous response, on my desktop.

    So, what de you known about the security status of the email adress bitdefender@hello.bitdefender.com nowadays, so that I can finally use Bitdefender Scamio ?

    Thanks for responding.
