Profile Systems have massive issues
Firstly, I'm not a fan of Bitdefender's profiling system because it's not well-designed, problematic, annoying and in a sense unnecessary.
The issue is, it automatically puts apps into certain profiles without giving user a choice to remove that app from certain profiles. For example, I use Thunderbird email client, and it needs to be running 24x7. I have it added as a startup app so, whenever I start my system, Bitdefender automatically turns on Work profile. So my PC is on Work profile 24x7.
Now if I check the settings of Work profile then I see that the default setting is to turn off product update and background maintenance. This only makes sense for the game profile. People who work with Microsoft Office apps, email clients like Outlook, Thunderbird all the time would remain without signature update as long as the apps are running. This is a very strange design.
If there was an option to exclude apps from profiles then I would be able to delete all these from Work profile, but there isn't.
IMO, Bitdefender should get rid of Profiles altogether and start doing what many other products have been doing for years and that is automatically turn on Game Mode when it detects a program running in full screen. It's the easiest method. The only time when users might want their AV to not do any background tasks like signature update/scheduled scan and impact performance is gaming. That's how other AV products are designed and there are no complaints from users. I have turned on Automatic Profile Switching in Bitdefender only for the game profile. I don't need anything else. I also tried manually adding game exe into the game profile to avoid enabling it, but it doesn't work unless I also enable Automatic Profile Switching.
If the full screen method is not something you prefer then you can follow what F-Secure does now and that is, F-Secure turns on their Game Mode when Windows's built-in Game Mode detects a program as games. So when it happens, F-Secure automatically turns on Game Mode. This method is efficient too since Windows Game Mode usually able to detect games almost 100% of the time excluding some pirated games.
Either one or the other would be the best solution. But if Bitdefender still wants to keep the Profile system then give us the option to manually remove apps from profiles.
Please consider my suggestion and change the current method which is clearly not ideal.
