What happens when my subscription expires?

About BDTS 2018.  What changes after the subscription expires and is not renewed?

Does the software continue to work?

Are updates (engine? definition?) disabled?




  • Hello,


    The product goes inactive.

  • Is there any visual feedback or warning message on the PC that the product is no longer functional?

    Will the default Windows Defender start working when BDTS stops working when it expires?

  • Hello,


    There are several warnings and visual warnings that the subscription is about to expire, as well as when it expires.

    Windows Defender should detect that the product is inactive and give a warning and a prompt to activate it.
