Summary: PCMag.com's tester faced several problems caused by the scans, but found tech support expedient and valuable. It should be noted that consumers give Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2013 decidedly mixed reviews. Although there aren't a ton of user reviews across consumer sites, customers seem to love or hate the software; critics say it's too slow or blocked uploads and downloads.
Pros: Outstanding antivirus protection, Anti-phishing and other online protections, Secure online transactions
Conclusion: Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2013 does everything an antivirus should and includes useful bonus features. It performed very well in our testing and in independent tests as well.

Very good malware blocking and phishing protection. Secure browser for financial transactions. Facebook and Twitter protection. Full remote management.
