Uninstall Bitdefender VPN completely

Hello,

since the last major update of my Bitdefender it automatically installed Bitdefender VPN. I do not need it and I'm not going to use it, so I tried to uninstall it. It works until the next reboot and Bitdefender reinstalls it again. It there a way to completely uninstall it and turn it off so that it won't reinstall automatically?


Kind Regards

Sergus

  • Same problem here. Totally annoying. I'm already looking for an alternative antivirus solution. This is not a good way to treat your (long time) customers, trying to force them to use products, they don't want or need.

    Same! I tried to delete it and it says I don't have permissions.. so I try to set permissions and I can't again! And the BD Uninstaller in the same folder does not have the option, only to uninstall BD... Geeez how annoying! Why did this even install (and multiple times) without asking!

  • i used Revo uninstaller pro and i removed the VPN easy.
