Compare Bitdefender and Avast
Bitdefender is the most reliable choice if are looking for an antivirus solution that offers high malware detection rates and minimal impact on your system performance and also affordable pricing. It also offers some distinct features like a file shredder and webcam and microphone protection, which blocks any suspicious requests to your camera or microphone.
Easy-to-use antivirus software is another crucial aspect. Both Avast and Bitdefender are relatively simple to navigate, but we found that Bitdefender was a bit more difficult to navigate when it comes to running scans. It took us longer to locate the settings we needed and setting up an entire scan or a boot-time scan was a little difficult.
Bitdefender’s customer support is superior to Avast. Its customer support phone line is able to speak an array of languages, and its knowledge base is vast. Avast however, on its other however, restricts its phone support to customers who pay and relying on its knowledge base and forums.
