Bitdefender: Malware and Theft Protection

Bitdefender Mobile Security has a clean and natural interface. At the highest point of the home screen is a status marker that tells you whether your cell phone is protected or at danger, and in addition the quantity of days since you last ran a malware check.

Bitdefender Mobile Security was easy to set up. I downloaded the application by means of Google Play in only a few moments over my home Wi-Fi system, which was running at 56.5 Mbps. I connected the application to my Google account by tapping on the Google Plus symbol (you can likewise make a Bitdefender account), and entered my permit key to open the full form of the application. On the whole, the setup procedure took under 2 minutes to finish.

Beneath the marker, the home screen is isolated into six screens organized in two segments: Malware Scanner, Privacy Advisor, Web Security, Anti-Theft, App Lock and Reports. Tapping on every opens a submenu with extra alternatives and apparatuses.

A catch with three vertical dabs at the base right corner of the home screen opens a pop-up menu underneath the six home-screen catches, with catches for About and Global Settings. In the Settings menu, you can empower or impair push warnings, enter a PIN code to control your telephone utilizing SMS charges or lock applications utilizing the App Lock highlight (more beneath), and replenish or enter your permit key.

Bitdefender as of late coordinated Android Wear smartwatches into Mobile Security; one component appears a watch screen alarm when you've ventured too far from your telephone, and another makes a lost telephone "shout" for simple finding. These components came past the point of no return for us to audit.

From the settings menu, you can likewise enroll your gadget to a current Bitdefender Total Security Multi-Device membership ($99.95 every year for five gadgets, $129.95 every year for 10 gadgets). Enrolling your gadget permits you to utilize a solitary record for every one of your Windows, OS X and Android gadgets, and is more practical than independently buying Bitdefender Total Security 2015 ($89.95 every year for three PCs) and Bitdefender Mobile Security 2015.

Notwithstanding manual malware examining, Bitdefender Mobile Security naturally filters every single new application and went to sites for malware. (The last works just with the stock Android program or Chrome for Android.) The suite is likewise situated to output stockpiling cards of course, in spite of the fact that this can be incapacitated in the Malware Scanner submenu.

Not at all like Norton Mobile Security, in any case, Bitdefender doesn't permit you to set up planned outputs. This is an astonishing exclusion, given the program's generally strong arrangement of components.

Thankfully, Bitdefender Mobile Security offers sterling malware assurance. The application's latest form recognized 100 percent of 2,928 malware tests, as indicated by the free AV-TEST lab's latest malware-identification tests.

That is superior to the business normal of 98 percent, and in addition the outcomes accomplished by AVG AntiVirus Free (95.0 percent), Avast Mobile Security (99.9 percent), McAfee Mobile Security (99.5 percent) and Norton Mobile Security (99.7 percent). Of the Android antivirus items we've assessed in this class, just Kaspersky Internet Security likewise identified 100 percent of the specimens. (AV-TEST did not assess Lookout Mobile Security in its most recent round.)

To evaluate Bitdefender's effect on framework execution, I ran the Geekbench 3 Android benchmark in the meantime as a malware filter on my Huawei Ascend Mate 2 running Android 4.3. Before I introduced the application, the telephone accomplished a score of 1,519. After establishment, the Ascend Mate 2 indented a score of 1,517 and a score of 1,496 amid a sweep.
