Get Bitdefender Antivirus Plus if you're on a budget and don't have kids

By Brian Nadel 2 days ago       
Our Verdict

Bitdefender's Windows antivirus software offers excellent protection along with a slew of features meant to secure your family's systems and identities.

    Excellent malware protection
    Top-tier suite includes unlimited VPN
    Password manager, parental controls
    Easy-to-use interface


    Let a few threats through
    Lacks file encryption
    Heavy background system load

Bitdefender's antivirus protections are just a hair behind those of industry leaders Kaspersky and Norton among the best antivirus software, but its programs pack in more useful features at lower prices.

We recommend the entry-level Bitdefender Antivirus Plus for any Windows 10 user who doesn't need parental controls.

Bitdefender has made only modest adjustments to its lineup for 2021. There is still the same five-product range, from the bare-bones Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition through Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, Bitdefender Internet Security and Bitdefender Total Security to the flagship Bitdefender Premium Security with its unlimited VPN use.  All five use the same malware-detection technology.

The biggest change for 2021 is that Bitdefender now seems to take longer to fully scan a system. Still, the programs deliver excellent malware protection and are the rare antivirus programs that can be purchased in a bundle with home networking hardware.
