Features - Antivirus reviews at Top 5 Antivirus Software

Effective, Useful, and One-of-a-Kind Features

Easily installed on PC, Win 10 included, Mac, and IOS, Total Security 2016 offers a wide range of features, including several unique and very useful features that are not common in most antivirus programs today.


Once installed, the autopilot feature is turned on by default, which is great for users who don’t want to mess around with settings and configurations. The autopilot simply configures the antivirus program’s settings for you based on your behavior, making it optimized to your specific needs without having you waste your time on doing it yourself.


The SAFEPAY feature is one of those unique features that make Bitdefender Total Security  so appealing. Nearly everyone shops online these days, leaving credit card details and other personal information potentially open to theft. Many internet users even opt to access their bank accounts online to monitor their account and make transactions. SAFEPAY is basically a secure browser that you open from the Total Security Interface and it allows you to make secure payments and log into your accounts without worrying about having your personal information stolen. Users can even have their payment details saved, encrypted, and protected by Bitdefender to save time filling out payment forms when they shop.


There are a number of optimization tools, including PC Clean Up, Registry Cleaner, and Disk Defragmenter, among several others. But the one that really makes this product unique is the 1-Click Optimizer which can be accessed from the home screen of the user interface. Users need only click the “Optimize” button in the home screen and Total Security  will automatically activate Disk Cleanup, Registry Cleanup, and Privacy Cleanup.


Bitdefender Total Security  was designed from start to finish to provide maximum security and advanced features in an interface that anyone can use and understand with ease. The design is sleek and intuitive, and all of the main features can be activated from the main screen in one click. With the AUTOPILOT feature, users can install the software and have it completely configured and optimized to their specific needs without ever needing to access the user interface.

    I did not find BitDefender support to be satisfactory the past year I was using it. One cannot find a phone number to actually talk to a human and their web-mail response to issues is very poor. I had a problem where suddenly I could not send or receive e-mails. The error message alluded to BD (which turned out to be true). I did not get a response to my problem for 2 days. That is poor.

    I am looking for a virus protection program for my Mac 10.6.8. Any suggestions?

    • Julia Thomas

      Hi Eve,
      Thanks for your question. There are a number of good antivirus programs for Mac, including Norton, McAfee, and Bitdefender. You can take a look at this list to find more information on great antivirus software for Mac computers.
      Good luck,

    I’m considering your protection. I own an iMac (El Capitan version) and a Dell laptop (Windows 7). Could I use your protection for both? Will I need a different coverage for each?

    • Julia Thomas

      Hi Quint,
      Thanks for your question. Bitdefender has a package that will cover both Windows and Mac devices, and you can use the protection for up to 5 devices. The package is called Total Security 2017. You can check out the package details here.
      Good luck,

  • Dave

    Does it work with win 10? It is not listed.

    • Julia Thomas

      Hi Dave,
      In response to your question, the 2015 version of Bitdefender is compatible with Windows 10. If you’d like more specific details about compatibility with Windows 10, you can read Bitdefender’s support article about it here.
      Good luck,

    I am totally dissatisfied with Bitfinder. The activation code did not work. I have emailed bitfinder tech suppport and received an automated response and zero followup. Then I tried the online chat line for support. They told me to wait for their colleagues to get back to me via email. Right! I am STILL waiting for any response. This was a total rip off.

      Hi Kim,

      Sorry to hear about the difficulties you’ve experienced getting set up.

      Hi Ella,

      It’s not possible to turn off the software completely, but you can disable the specific modules necessary via the Bitdefender interface.

      I hope that helps!

    I agree, buying online is much safer with bitdefender , and they also have a password manager to make things easier for me.

    Great promotion!

    The $30 price was very appealing and so far my PC is feeling very safe with his new friend :)
    When is this promotion finished? I have a few friends that need to renew their Antivirus.
