If you’re looking for the most effective antivirus solution with high malware detection rates, minimal impact on system performance and affordable pricing then Bitdefender is a clear winner. It also has some unique features like microphone and webcam protection, which block any suspicious requests to your camera or microphone.
Another key aspect is the ease to use your antivirus. Avast and Bitdefender both have a straightforward interface, however Bitdefender is a bit more cumbersome when it runs scans. It took us longer to locate the settings we needed to set up an entire scan or a boot-time scan was a little difficult.
As for customer support, Bitdefender’s is superior to Avast’s. Its phone support offers various languages, and its knowledge base is vast. Avast however, on the contrary side, limits its contact options to customers with a credit card and relies on its information base and forums.
