Effective protection against viruses

BitDefender Free Antivirus offers optimal protection for your computer. Scanning is efficient, and it consumes few resources, but it doesn't offer any advanced options. It is ideal for those who aren’t very familiar with antivirus programs.

There is nothing to configure

BitDefender Antivirus Free combats malware such as viruses, worms, and spyware. It doesn’t need any configuration, which makes it ideal for less experienced users.

The program includes a game mode, which automatically disables real time analysis to ensure maximum performance when you are gaming.

The real-time protection is of a good standard and the scans are thorough. BitDefender Antivirus Free doesn’t consume a lot of resources, neither in standby mode nor when scanning.

The easiest to use antivirus out there

BitDefender Free Antivirus is easily accessible from the system tray. The interface, which has a modern and elegant design, is simple to use: you can only enable/disable the Virus Shield and Auto Scan functions, and view the log of the analysis. Nothing more.
