The internet isn’t as secure as it was a few years ago – it’s a teeming ocean full of all kinds of online threats, yearning to breach your privacy or steal your financial information and many more. Over 7 million JavaScript malware viruses were found in the last year. It’s important to keep your anti-virus software updated. Avast and Bitdefender both have tools that will assist you with this, including vulnerability scans that aid in determining which applications are outdated and an automatic software updater.

However, if you’re looking for the best antivirus solution with excellent malware detection rates as well as minimal impact on your system performance and an affordable price then Bitdefender is the clear winner. It also comes with unique features like a file shredder and microphone and camera protection, which block any suspicious requests to your microphone or camera.

Another crucial aspect is the ease to use your antivirus. Avast and Bitdefender both have a fairly straightforward interface, however Bitdefender is a little more cumbersome when it runs scans. It took us longer to locate the settings we needed for the full scan or boot-time scanning was a bit difficult.

In terms of support, Bitdefender’s customer service is much more impressive than Avast’s. Its knowledge base as well as phone support are extensive. Avast however, on the other the other hand, limits its phone support to customers who pay and rely on its knowledge base and forums.
