  • Hello! I am new to this place, finally decided to join after reading it for a while. I've been a user of an antivirus program for several months and I love it. When I am in my Pattaya estate I like to visit a lot of websites especially when I plan to download a movie so I really need a good protection. And Bitdefender Antivirus works really well

  • Hello,

    I'm French and I live in France.

    I have been using the computer tool for 30 years. It has enabled me to continue my studies (legal and computer science). Over time I became a real "geek". I put my computer skills and knowledge at the service of a voluntary disability association for 13 years. I managed the small computer park of the association but above all, I tried to make the computer tool accessible to people with disabilities. Moreover, I love reading and writing...not to mention Bitdefender that I use since 2016😉

    Welcome to the community @TaxiMagicien42 !

    It sounds like you're doing very noble work in helping others with disabilities to be able to use all this wonderful technology!

    Hope you'll have a great time with us here :)

    Good evening @Andy_BD,

    Thank you for your message.

    Let’s say I humbly try to make my contribution in these two areas that I know well.

    It is with pleasure that I will participate in the various exchanges that will take place here.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi guys,

    I'm Gerald currently in the 40's and working as a design engineer in Germany.

    The good: Been using BitDefender since ages (2008 or even earlyer if I'm not mistaken). Been enjoying my PC and it's protection offered by BD and never ever had something bad happening to it.

    The bad: Unfortunately, since the threat's evolved more and more, keeping a safe system apearently means a super over intrusive AV. Who will follow my older threads will see how my PC is actualy full of exclusions just to function....

  • Greetings,

    I'm Cliff, residing in Ohio, USA..the part of North America that Canada didn't want.

    What is your profession? I was a manufacturer's representative for companies that produced items for physical therapy departments and home care providers. I retired a few years ago and am now a user of the products I used to represent.

    Which are your hobbies? Golf is my main hobby. I've spent over 60 years perfecting my game to a point that is a marvel to those that foolishly restrict themselves to the fairways and greens. On numerous occasions I've heard "What the heck was that?" as my ball headed for parts of the surrounding area that weren't included in the architect's design.

    Share a bit about what motivates you. Generally, pizza and a number of items made of meat byproducts with sufficient trans fat and spice to drive my physician to tears.

    Maybe tell us about your favorite things or people you like? Funding organizations involved in medical research and secondary education.

  • Hi,

    I'm Simon and for years I was an IT journalist, reviewing software and hardware for magazines and websites. Did quite a few group tests of IS software and Bitdefender usually came out top, so when I retired and no longer had freebies to rely on for protection, I went to Bitdefender for my own use. I have eight PCs laptops and tablet protected by it.

    I spend most of my retirement time writing poetry (which I've done for 45 years or so) and have recently had my ninth collection published. I'm generally happy with Bitdefender, other than with a few little irritations. I live in South Devon, UK

  • I am relatively new to Bitfender but I cannot access some websites that I normally use which is a nuisance. I am having to use my ipad to get on some sites. I am not particularly tech savvy so I am disappointed with my purchase at the moment.

  • Thanks for the welcome.

    I'm Arka, a Canadian expat in Tokyo. I just purchased Bitdefender for our company and am currently rolling it out on all machines. I'm very impressed by the low price and the ease of setup and management.

    I'm director of product development at a small company developing and selling a platform for intelligent digital assistants for cars.

    My hobbies are scuba diving and weekend trips to the mountains!

  • Hi folks. My name is Ian, and I retired about two months ago from working as an Instructional Designer for a world-class MDR cybersecurity company HQ'd in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. With more time to focus on life outside of employment, I'm looking to strengthen my home network security. I'm relatively new to using Bitdefender, though I've heard of it for several years. I just kept getting cheap deals for other Internet security apps (McA*** and Nor* ** mostly). Now I want to get serious, including the addition of VPN on all of our devices.

    I hope this will be a long and fruitful relationship!

  • My name is Kevin. I work for a promotional marketing agency in US. Assisting with information security management. In my spare time I fly sailplanes.

    We are a 100% macOS shop and control many things on company issued laptops using SimpleMDM, but there are a few things that we need to have more control of or have more visibility into. Hoping Bitdefender can be the tool for us.

  • My name is David. I have used Norton Anti-Virus for years but recently switched to Bitdefender. I am very happy with all of it, except for one thing...

    I. Need. To. Know. How. To. Stop. Those. Bloody. Pop-ups.

    This is killing me. I don't care that Bitdefender sell a VPN (I already have one). I don't care that anything is 'optimised' for work. I don't care that banking can be made more secure. I don't care that when I'm torrenting Bitdefender has noticed and can sell me a VPN that I don't need.
  • Hello! I am Gary.
    I have used Bitdefender since it first started on a PC.
    Now I am on iOS only.
    Is there an area dedicated to the iOS users on the beta version on iOS? I know the security situation is different with it.
    I hope to get involved more here.

    hi my name is Bill i am retired from " IT " as of last year. I started my career around 1985. I started at the last of the mainframes. Saw PC's become popular. I like flying my drone, day trading, working on cars, and smallengines. I like electronics both analog and digital. In fact in High School i was taking Analog electronics, no calculators, PC's , LCDs either Nixie tubes , CRT's or analog meters for worldly outside reading of what was going on. Had a slide rule for calculations. I remeber the day our instructor came in and informed us about a new company called Intel and something called digital electronics. I started working when i was 14 working at nights after school or weekends. All the nice days i was inside repairing someones whatever. Now its time for adventure, everyday is a saturday.

  • Hello @DronePilot and welcome to the Bitdefender Expert Community!

    Thanks for sharing your story with us and I'm glad you're now enjoying the free time for which you worked so hard. What type of drone do you fly, it's an FPV or competition? I myself am an automotive enthusiat, so I'd love to hear more about that as well, if you wish.

    Stay safe,

    Mike

    Hi @Andy_BD and everyone else!

    I'm new here. Hopefully I'll enjoy my stay in this forum.

    About me? I work as a freelancer; I usually write for various clients and complete ad hoc tasks for them.

    My hobbies include reading books, watching Netflix while chilling, eating cheese-flavored popcorn and licking the cheese off my fingers, and listening to music of all genres.

    What motivates me now is money. I'm trying to save up for future travels, so when it's already safe to be roaming the world again, I have the financial resource to get the heck out of this country for a while.

    One of my favorite persons in the world is Taylor Swift (yes, I'm a Swiftie, I think). This woman continually impresses me with her songwriting ability and more importantly her business savviness and work ethic (which other artist can release multiple albums in a single calendar year? Her productivity is out of this world!).

    Cheers.
