Is this email from BD for real?

I got an email, supposedly from Bitdefender, claiming improvements and new features. 

My questions:

  1. Is this email genuine?

  2. Which version # will these changes show up? I am on BDTS ver engine ver: 7.71155

  3. When will that happen?

  4. Do I need to do anything to get these features if I have set my BDTS 2017 to Autopilot mode?



I won't post the details, but here is the gist of the features:

Continuous updates



New Bitdefender Central app for iOS and Android



Improvements on Windows

  • Hi,alokep. If this is the version you get when you do an update, then that is the latest version.

    Here is the changelog.



  • Hello,


    If you have Bitdefender Total Security 2017, that means you are already running those features.
