  • Hello Everyone. A quick introduction about me.

    My name is Alfredo; I live in Mexico City. This is my first time using Bitdefender (coming off ESET). I trust I will find suitable protection here as I faced some very negative issues with my former provider. I am a retired engineer and I still work as an independent consultant. I like sports in general and a lot of reading. Thanks for the opportunity to learn from you.

  • Hello Everyone!

    I’m Sanjay Pasari from Delhi India, the User Community Manager here at Bitdefender. Before this I used to work at a video games studio, doing community work there. I met a lot of interesting people and got me to understand more about what it's like to be on the other side of the fence. It was a very interesting insight especially since I've been a gamer for more than 5 years now.

  • Hello @sanjaypasari and welcome to the Bitdefender Community! We're happy to have you here.

  • Edward here; User for years, glad to see BitDefender prospering.

    Joined here/now during extended troubleshooting/updating of my collection of computers and Phones.

    It is good to see solutions to known problems documented; Saved me considerable time.

    My Bit Central interface is almost done; Configuring it may have given me hints about my other problems,

    specifically setting up port forwarding and IP address to satisfy Warframe MMORPG requirements.

    Thank you, Scott.

    My Bit central view of my Bitdefender Box is now current and corrected;

    changed the names of the two conflicting computers, now see both, and

    may have helped by removing some old ipconfig data from one PC using

    DeviceCleanup. V1.2.1 - Removes non-present devices from the Windows

    device management.

  • I'm generally new to Bitfender however I can't get to certain sites that I typically use which is a disturbance. I'm utilizing my ipad to get on certain locales. I'm not especially educated so I'm disheartened with my buy right now.

  • Hello @honey2 and welcome to the Community!

    Are you using a VPN connection when navigating on those sites, or do you receive any pop up message from Bitdefender whenever access is blocked? This would help us understand what exactly is blocking the connection and why.

    This is a post/comment by @Encrypted_God, that was posted in a wrong section:

    "I've been a K user for many years. Due to the crap that's going on, I need to change my AV software. I have more time on that sub but I just can't continue. Anyways....hello to all😊"

    Hello Bitdefender staff and community.

    I am Boris and I am an IT Admin. Apart from that I participate in various malware hunting and analysis activities.

    My relationship with Bitdefender started when I was 13 (2008) when I somehow fall on to the Bitdefender website, looking for a way to clean an extremely infected PC (on which Kaspersky IS 6 with annoying HIPS was installed and I was always terminating it from the tray). I’ve always liked the Bitdefender way of doing things and BD’s threat research.

    In my spare time I like travelling, socialising, staying fit and sending emails to BD (as well as to various other vendors) persuading them to block shopify-based scam websites and other threats.

  • Hi @BradD and thank you for joining us here!

  • Ditto! Those damn VPN pop-ups are almost enough to make me want to drop Bitdefender. I can't go 30 minutes without a pop-up trying to sell me a VPN. There should be a way to silence these pop-ups.

    Open your Bitdefender program and go to:

    1. Settings -> General and disable "Special offers" and "Recommendation notifications" (for the "Password Manager" notification)

    2. Protection -> Antivirus -> Settings -> Scan flash drives and select "Autoscan" or "Disabled", do not select "Ask every time" (for the "USB Immunizer Recommendation" notification)

    3. Protection -> Antivirus -> Settings -> Scan CD & DVD and select "Autoscan" or "Disabled", do not select "Ask every time" (for the "CD/DVD Recommendation" notification)

    4. Privacy -> Safepay -> Settings and disable "Safepay notifications"

    5. Privacy -> Video & Audio Protection -> Settings and disable "Notify when allowed applications connect to the webcam", "Notify when an application tries to access the microphone" and "Notify when browsers access the microphone"

    6. Utilities -> Profiles -> Settings and disable "Activate profiles automatically" (for the Profile notification)

    After doing that, in the future no pop-up notifications will be displayed in the lower right corner of your screen.

    REMEMBER: When a threat is detected, a pop-up notification will be displayed in the lower right corner of your screen and you can't disable those pop-up notifications.

    Next, as an option to fully disable the Bitdefender alerts and pop-ups, open your Bitdefender program, go to Utilities -> Profiles -> Settings and enable/activate "Work Profile" or "Game Profile".

    When "Work Profile" or "Game Profile" is enabled/activated, all Bitdefender alerts and pop-ups are disabled.

    Finally, as for the Bitdefender VPN pop-ups, you can simply uninstall Bitdefender VPN from your device by following the steps provided here (just select "Bitdefender VPN"):


    open the Bitdefender VPN program, go to Settings -> Notifications and disable "Allow notifications".

    It is recommended that you also review the privacy preferences set in your Bitdefender Central account:

    1. On any internet-connected device launch a web browser, visit and sign in to your Bitdefender Central account.

    2. Click on your username in the top right corner and select "Bitdefender Account" in the menu. This option will launch in a new browser tab.

    3. Access the "Data & Privacy" tab, then click on the "Privacy preferences" section.

    4. Uncheck both boxes to stop promotional messages:

    - Receive in product insights regarding threats, news, and offers.

    - Receive insights regarding threats, news, and offers via email.
