Bitdefender VPN Upgrade Message Prevents Me From Using My Free VPN Data. Any Help?
I have Bitdefender Total Security and according to the package information I should get 200 MB per day. However I cannot use it because the VPN box constantly changes to an upgrade message as soon as I open it. And there is no way to open the VPN.
This is annoying and unethical and makes me want to cancel my Bitdefender subscription which I have had for a few years. While I can afford the cost of upgrading, the way it is being pushed on me makes me less, not more, likely to upgrade. I have gone through a number of the threads in the forums and done every suggestion the admins have made about managing popups (which is also a problem that I experience - I'm constantly told I have an unsafe home wifi when my password has all the requirements advised by Bitdefender). I have turned off multiple security notifications and NOTHING has worked and I keep seeing the admins making the same suggestions over and over. I will be switching antivirus providers due to this issue.
Okay so an update is that the issue has spontaneously resolved.
However I'm still frustrated that I wasted hours on it and seemingly cannot use the VPN when its convenient to me but rather at Bitdefender's discretion. I will update if it keeps occurring.
