  • I don't even understand why spammers are allow to remain on this forum along with their posts. I manage a couple forums myself and the very second I see someone post spam or a malicious link I delete their account (and posts) entirely. There's no "please don't do that" involved... waste of time. It's like asking a virus to…
  • Why does Bitdefender forum allow spam posts with malicious links like the two above? I only stopped by this thread searching for more elaborate documentation on the "Your device allows any user to change the settings for the security zones. This could lead to execution of dangerous code types from the Internet and websites…
  • Search Advisor still does not work with Google. (Works with Bing though - tested again today with latest versions of Edge, Chrome, and FireFox) I've tried installing/unsintalling TrafflicLight, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Bitdefender Total Security, went through all of the settings. Search Advisor simply does…

  • YES!! Finally, new version arrived on all PC's. Really good to see that "heartbeat" again, all you have to do to enable / disable it is right-click on the BD icon in the task bar. Great effort everyone! :)
  • Thanks for the confirmation @k70 (and also @VictorK ) My BDTS is still stuck on version 25.0.10.52 , even after uninstall / re-install from Central , on all PC's. Really would like it if BD could provide a link to get the new version.
  • @VictorK - you got lucky to get it early, but thanks for letting us all know that it really is coming to fruition. Lots of us are still waiting and checking updates every day in hopes to see it arrive.
  • @BogdanB_BD Thank you for the update, very welcome news! However, this weekend is end of month and I'm starting to wonder when I'll receive it. https://community.bitdefender.com/en/discussion/comment/300270/#Comment_300270 Fingers crossed... 🤞
  • Completely uninstalled BDTS, rebooted, made sure all Windows Updates and Driver Updates are current, made sure all browsers (Edge, Chrome, FireFox) are updated to latest version, re-installed BDTS from Central. Still no widget. And on a side-note - Search Advisor does not work in any browser. No "TrafficLight" icons next…
  • I just read the great news - https://community.bitdefender.com/en/discussion/comment/299258/#Comment_299258 BitDefender will be bringing the Security Widget back. Big sigh of relief for those of us who help a lot of friends/family/clients with their system management and for whom we've guided to install BD Total Security…
  • This is a major relief! Great news, thank you. This truly saves me from having to put a ton of extra effort into helping the 30+ other people (clients, family, friends) that I help manage systems for and have purchased BD TS for years at my recommendation, and saves the trouble of them asking me to help end their BD TS…
  • I think it might be helpful if more people would use the "vote" feature in my first post at this link - https://community.bitdefender.com/en/discussion/82831/please-bring-back-the-security-widget-in-total-security Especially since it's in the "Product features and Ideation" forum and BitDefender describes that section as:…
  • This thread is marked as "Accepted Answer" ? Because of the original poster? I don't want to make life difficult for anyone, but I will start a new thread on this, and more.
  • So as of today: BD says - "the widget used unnecessary resources" and was "not popular". Yeah? Really? It was the only thing that let most users know that it was still loading / scanning / updating / computer ready. AND it was THE step above all the other security suites, with a visual warning / alert that a simple user…
  • Well, that's an obvious pile of dung considering the Security Widget made it plain & clear what was running. This is a huge step backward. (Not to mention that the Security Advisor is now non-functional in Chrome and FireFox). I'm not trying to argue. These are confirmed FACTS from PAYING CUSTOMERS. 2CO is very amicable on…
  • This is getting BURIED. Please VOTE on the Original Post.
  • So, now that BD has made up their mind that the Security Widget is no longer something we deserve, that we paid for, please enlighten us - how is BitDefender now any different than Kaspersky Total Security? PS - I'll gladly take a refund for what I bought (a product advertised with Security Widget) so that I can uninstall…
  • Would be great to see some factual information to back-up those statements. Low number of users? Let's see the stats. Move to Metro interface? That was long before the widget! Not much of an impact on user experience? Yeah, I'll bet... for BD support, since users don't have any idea whether it's doing anything or not now.…
  • Thank you Phil, and EXCELLENT POINT where you mention: "If resources are an issue as @Flexx is suggesting, there is the option to turn off the Security Widget for those who do not want it to consume resources."
  • Thanks Phil. Please consider up-voting this feature request (to keep a great feature that was a deciding factor in some of us purchasing the product, only to see it suddenly removed after years).
  • HI Flex, I read your response very carefully (and I think everyone who cares about this feature should) because of the following simple points: The Security Widget has been a part of BD Total Security for many years now, so while I may not be a "developer" , when I hear you say "with any new feature comes more consumption…
  • WHY would BD choose to remove the Security Widget from Total Security? I help a lot of family / friends / clients / novice users secure their systems with BD Total Security and the Security Widget was the ONE easy way for them to know the status of their system (Green Check to let them know things are OK, easy number to…
  • Happened just now, randomly. All computers / phones / tablet are all protected & updated, confirmed in BD Central. I have a 10-device license, and currently only running 7 devices.
  • Hi Alex, Thank you for the reply. It is only happening randomly now, but the next time it does (likely will happen within the next 24 hours) I will screenshot / post it here.
  • Been using BitDefender Total Security for over 7 years and always keep it updated, currently running BD TS 2020 on Windows 10 Pro, and Search Advisor does not work in Chrome. I've had to once again resort to installing the TrafficLight extension. I first reported it a long time ago in this older archived / locked thread…
  • PS - Yes, installing Traffic Light (in both Chrome and FireFox) from https://www.amtso.org/feature-settings-check-phishing-page/ Does patch the issues of the safe link icon indicators not working and the phishing blocker not working, but BD Total Security advertises that as one of the main built-in features, so this…
  • On 3/4/2019 at 6:49 AM, hunga said: Hello, Actually I think not only the green (or red) icons in Safe Search are not working in Chrome/Firefox, but even the real anti-phishing is not active any more in those browsers.. I checked AMTSO's phishing website check and Bitdefender is unable to identify it as a phishing (test)…
  • BD needs to test themselves before putting users through so much. BD needs to trust it's loyal customers of many years, many of whom work in IT and Systems Administration themselves. Fortunately I was smart enough to know to hit the Chat Transcript button before the BD live chat support agent abruptly closed the chat.…
