Anti-tracker interfering with Google Docs and Gmail

If I'm in gmail, and use the 9 dot icon, select Calendar, I get a 400 error. If I type as a URL, it works fine.

If I'm in Google Drive, double-click on a sheet, I get a 401 error (auth). If I open sheets and file File/open to get the same sheet, it opens fine.

If I go to Chrome's 3-dot menu / More Tools / Extensions, and disable Bitdefender Anti-tracker using the slide, then return to those pages, refresh, and try again, those problems go away.

This is Windows 10, Chrome is fully up to date. I purged downloaded pages and cookies, and refreshed pages. Disabling anti-tracker makes the problem go away, links work fine. Re-enabling anti-tracker brings the problems back.




  • Hello @glenm125 ,

    Few other users are also facing similar issues with Bitdefender AntiTracker and google. Here is the resolution to your issue and use both Bitdefender and google drive.

    Click on the tab for Google Drive (or the errored page), then click on the Bitdefender Anti-tracker extension, then click the gear icon in the upper right corner (in the open Bitdefender Anti-tracking extension), and under "Exceptions", click the blue "Add current website to the list." This should add ; however, you can also manually enter the link "" in the bar under "Manually add or remove websites below."  You might have to refresh the tab that has the error, or close the tab and reopen your Google drive.

    This is just a work around, you can report the issue at [email protected]

    If you find this helpful, please mark the answer as accepted/agree.

    Thanks and regards.

    Removing superfluous comment. Sorry for the noise.

  • How will I be notified that there is a patch and that it is safe to turn the Anti-tracker back on?

    As said in trail comment by the bitdefender support in the image, the patch will bill available automatically through update and if they reply back on the same to me via personal email, i will post back here.



  • Just for information until the fix is published, I found that just refreshing the new tab (with the Unauthorized Error 401) worked without adding the site to the exceptions.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
