Bitdefender – Anti-Malware and Threat Detection:
Most possibly, most of the users comes to Bitdefender for malware protection because of its strong pedigree and the AV-Test’s February 2014 report that detected 100% of the malware samples that caught in their tests.
Bitdefender’s on-demand scanning was found to be so fast and during scaning, Bitdefender extracts information from only the files that harms the device such as APKs, apps, and others and then accomplish the analysis on the cloud.
Bitdefender gives constant protection by scanning apps when downloaded or updated and by scanning the entire device would be connected to another computer. This type of approach delivers lickety-split scans and protection only when needed.
Bitdefender also scans the device when it’s connected to the Internet. Though this lack of control might be weaken to power users but whatever that takes for the security decision-making, it seems a good thing. When a malware is found, it is impossible for it to get into an Internet connection. Bitdefender took averagely only 5.6 seconds to perform a full scan that includes apps and files that was actually much faster than the other security apps and its performance was twice as fast. top
Bitdefender – Performance Effect:
Make Bitdefender always in running mode to get the continuous protection for the device. Though this may have a little impact on the basic function of the Android, rebooting with Bitdefender installed covers 28.5 seconds averagely and the AV-Test confirmed that Bitdefender doesn’t give any impact on the battery life.
Bitdefender scans are so fast when compared with the Minecraft—Pocket Edition and the Usemon application also stated that there was no noteable change in CPU or RAM usage while it scanned.
Bitdefender – Privacy Advisor:
As most of the android users only concentrates the apps at face value but not aware of that those apps will be the leakage for the personal information that uses:
- Aggressive advertising tactics
- Tracking and divulging the location
- Money Cost and so on….
Though these apps are not really evil in order to hidden app behavior and to give you the greater visibility, Bitdefender comes with Clueful Privacy Advisor along with their security appplication that consists of the features such as:
- Easy to Use
- Hard to Master
- A Dedicated Tool top
Bitdefender – Theft Prevention:
As the theft prevention is the most important part of a mobile security application, the mobile security tools nowadays comes with applicable individual on/off toggles and expandable sections that explain s the function of each tool.
When the location area is taken for example, it shows the device’s location on a live map and the app consists of numerous links that leads to the Web portal that manages the anti-theft tools and cheers the new comers to get with the features before getting into an emergency situation. Bitdefender lets to use the Google credentials inspite of having a separate account to activate the application’s anti-theft features. Bitdefender will be asking for a activated phone number for receiving SMS alerts for notifying the anti-theft features. Though it is optional it is better to have for the users.
- Device location
- Remotely triggered alarm
- Remote lock
- Remote wipe
- Messaging options.
Bitdefender’s location service displayed Google Maps map within a reasonable margin of error. When the phone is remotely locked by using the Bitdefender website, a new passcode with the minimum four digits to deactivate the lockscreen need to be created. Bitdefender comes with the stock Android lockscreen that meant the custom messages can’t be send to the device once it has been locked but moreover it comes with the advantage of completely locking the device even to the person who already knows the device’s original passcode whereas this appreciated feature is not found in other security applications that even allows to access the notification tray, the list of running apps and the homescreen too when “locked.”Bitdefender also protects the SIM card and If the SIM is been replaced Bitdefender will send a warning SMS to the trusted phone number. By default, this feature is on and can’t be disabled but it it won’t lock the device automatically like ESET mobile security application does. This warning is not applicable, if the phone is in airplane mode or without a SIM.
As most of the mobile security application’s gives only some tiny news about what information need to be follow during a remote wipe but Bitdefender comes with the nuclear option of triggering a factory reset of the device. Once this feature is reset in the device, the user can’t be able to communicate with it through Bitdefender or even to the Google’s Android Device Manager as it prevents the information from falling into the wrong hands. top
