Compare Bitdefender and Avast
However, if you’re looking for an antivirus program with excellent malware detection rates with minimal impact on system performance and affordable pricing, then Bitdefender is a clear winner. It also has unique features, like shredders for files and webcam/microphone protection that blocks any suspicious requests.
An easy-to-use antivirus program is another important factor. Both Avast and Bitdefender are fairly easy to navigate, but we found that Bitdefender was a bit more clunky when it came to running scans. It took us longer to find the settings we required to set up a full scan or a boot-time scanning was a bit complicated.
Bitdefender’s customer support is superior to Avast. The phone support is available in a wide range of languages, and its knowledge base is extensive. Avast however, restricts its support options to paid customers and relies heavily on its forums and knowledge base.
