Goodbye Bitdefender Free, welcome Bitdefender Antivirus Free

Posted by

At the end of last year we saw how Bitdefender, a well-known security company, announced the withdrawal of its free antivirus service Bitdefender Free. However, just three months later, the company has just announced the launch of a new free alternative for PC, with the arrival of Bitdefender Antivirus Free for Windows.

As explained by the company itself in its official forum, beyond the similarities of the name and the objective of these applications, it is about a program that has been created from scratchseeking to offer users «enhanced features, functionality and improved user experience compared to the previous free version«. So this new antivirus adds Outlook and Thunderbird email protection, custom scan scheduling options, and exploit detection to the protection features.

In this way, this free version is presented as a fairly complete and reliable alternative– Includes antivirus protection features, including on-demand scanning of the devices it’s installed on, web protection, and advanced threat defense, which attempts to block zero-day attacks. And in fact, Bitdefender Antivirus Free uses the same antivirus engine as paid products, with Bitdefender being one of the antivirus systems with the best scores in all recent tests.

However, we will continue to meet a limited app, with other features such as ransomware repair, vulnerability scanning or firewall, that are only available in commercial versions to which users can subscribe.

How to download Bitdefender Antivirus Free

Although at the moment the free section of the Bitdefender website has not yet listed this new product, we can currently access and download this antivirus through the company’s website, with a simple installation process that will only require a Internet connection when running.
