Bitdefender Vs Avira Review

Bitdefender and Avira provide top-of-the line malware protection that includes real-time protection and ransomware protection. They’re also both really easy to use, so newcomers to cybersecurity can get up and running in no time. Both of them offer additional features like the VPN as well as an option to shred files and other privacy protections.

Avira and Bitdefender both have outstanding overall scores in independent testing labs. However, in this test I’d give the edge to Bitdefender because of its superior performance in the AV-Comparatives Performance Test, which gauges how much impact security software has on the speed of a computer. The low score indicates that it is able to run in the background without significantly slowing down your computer -unlike other competitors.

AV-Comparatives tests the impact of each product on system performance by examining the impact of each product on common computer activities like visiting websites, downloading and copying files. Bitdefender was the only one to make it through this test with a perfect score, while Avira came in at a close second.

Both offer a great level of customer support. Avira offers a comprehensive knowledge base and YouTube channel, whereas Bitdefender offers a complete support hub with a phone line with live chat, email support and videos of tutorials. The support hub is arranged by product so you can find the help you need.
