Bitdefender is the best choice if you are looking for an anti-virus solution that offers high malware detection rates and minimal impact on the performance of your system and also affordable pricing. It also offers some distinct features like microphone and camera protection, which blocks any suspicious requests to your camera or microphone.
Easy-to-use antivirus software is another important factor. Both Avast and Bitdefender are easy to navigate, but we found that Bitdefender was a little more clunky when it came to running scans. It took us longer to find the settings we required to set up an entire scan or a boot-time scan was a little difficult.
Bitdefender’s support is superior to Avast. Its knowledge base and phone support are extensive. Avast, on the other however, restricts its contact options to customers who pay MacBook cleaning kit and relies on its information base and forums.
