    Bitdefender will release the android 13 compatible version once all the smartphone manufacturers or majority of smartphone manufacturers will release the android 13 upgrade for their respective devices.

    Also, the latest version of bitdefender mobile security for android should be compatible with android 13 without any issues.

  • Hey all,

    I have the Android 13 update on my S22 galaxy and everything works fine...

    But i have one question, the new security tab in setting gives a warning that device security is not activated... I know now that this is the build in AV from Mc Affee ....can i activate that or wil this interfere with Bitdefender Security.?

    Like Windows, when you install an anti virus it deactivates Windows Defender..

    Thanks for your answers,


  • Hi @Kempie,

    If my understanding is correct, you are running another security solution alongside Bitdefender?


  • Hey Alexandru,

    I'm not using another security product alongside Bitdefender.

    Just with the new Android 13 the security and privacy setting is Renewed and now it says that i should activatie device security.

    I didn't activate it because i have Bitdefender installed, but my question is can i activate it and if no can't Bitdefender disable the notification like if you install Bitdefender on Windows it disable Windows Defender.....

  • Hi @Kempie,

    You can activate it. This will not interfere with the Bitdefender solution.
