  • Hello @urantiam ,

    There are different factors.

    1. Case 1: It might be a SPAM / Phishing mail. Just leave it / delete it. Your computer won’t be safe. Don’t open or click on any links on mails which you receive from suspecious email accounts.
    2. Case 2: If you are using Gmail from web browsers, all in/out traffic will be monitored by Bitdefender and your device will be protected
    3. Case 3: In case if any malware (spyware/virus/adware) tries to infiltrate to your computer from web or any other sources, Bitdefender will keep you protected.
