It really is a one stop shop for all your Internet security needs, thanks to versions for Windows, macOS, iOS and Android. Let’s explore all the ways Bitdefender Total Security 2018 has you covered!
Ransomware Protection & Safe Files
Ransomware (aka cryptolockers) is a huge problem in the last couple of years. If this particularly nasty strain of malware gets on your computer, it will start encrypting all your important documents and hold the decryption key ransom until you pay the hacker some Bitcoin! Bitdefender Total Security 2018 protects against this attack by creating a list of protected files. You add your important data to this list and if there’s any changes to them at all, Bitdefender Total Security 2018 will stop the change and alert you.
Unauthorised use of a webcam is everyone’s worst nightmare. Our devices are kept in personal places and if someone was able to see everything our computer’s webcams see, it makes for easy blackmail attempts. Hackers are increasingly sneaky too, as they have ways to disable a webcam’s notification light from turning on, so you’d never know if the camera is recording. Bitdefender Total Security 2018’s webcam protection constantly monitors webcam activity and blocks apps from accessing the camera unless you’ve specifically allowed it. See an app you’ve never heard of before trying to use the camera? Block it and carry on.
The cornerstone of every security platform is a firewall. A piece of malware may be on your computer, but if it can’t call home to dump the data its collected, or be activated remotely, then it’s rendered useless. The firewall in Bitdefender Total Security 2018 is easy to set up, with application-based rules, so only programs you know and trust can access the Internet. You can also set rules for public, work or home networks, so your BitTorrent client doesn’t fire up at work and get you or your employer in trouble.
Wi-Fi Security Advisor
Using public Wi-Fi is fraught with danger. How do you know the access point you’re connecting to isn’t a honeypot set up by a shifty hacker? If you connect to a poisoned access point, ever piece of data flowing through it is made available to a hacker. It’s like handing over the keys to your home to a thief and praying nothing will be stolen. Bitdefender Total Security 2018’s Wi-Fi Security Advisor can alert you to Wi-Fi networks that lack encryption, or use weak encryption, so you can adjust your Internet activity or deploy a VPN accordingly.
Viruses and malware aren’t the only way for hackers to get in to your computer. Missing operating system security patches, outdate or vulnerable software and unsafe system settings are cracks hackers can use to slide in and take advantage of you. Bitdefender Total Security 2018 can scan your entire computer for these vulnerabilities and provide advice on how to remedy them, such as installing updates and upgrading apps.
It’s rare for anyone to be using a single PC as their only method of computing these days. Most of us have smartphones, tablets and use multiple operating systems. Bitdefender knows this and has versions of Total Security 2018 for common platforms like iOS, Android and Mac, as well as Windows. This way all your devices are covered with a single software licence, with a common interface and the same robust protection.
The amazing features don’t stop there, with dozens more handy tools in Bitdefender Total Security 2018 that make Internet security a breeze, here’s a quick sample:
Game Movie and Work mode: smartly disables notifications during these important activities.
