  • By default archives are not scanned. But you may turn it ON by ticking “Scan inside archives“.
  • Scanning inside archives is a slow and resource-intensive process, which is therefore not recommended for real-time protection. Archives containing infected files are not an immediate threat to the security of your system. The malware can affect your system only if the infected file is extracted from the archive and executed without having real-time protection enabled.If you decide on using this option, you can set a maximum accepted size limit of archives to be scanned on-access. Select the corresponding check box and type the maximum archive size (in MB).

BITDEFENDER IS 2014 CONFIG_009_07072013_011759

  • To prevent malware from being downloaded to your computer, Bitdefender automatically scans the following malware entry points:
    • incoming and outgoing e-mails
    • web traffic
    • files received via Yahoo! Messenger

    Scanning the web traffic may slow down web browsing a little, but it will block malware coming from the Internet, including drive-by downloads.

    Though not recommended, you can disable e-mail, web or instant messaging antivirus scan to increase system performance. If you disable the corresponding scan options, the e-mails and files received or downloaded from the Internet will not be scanned, thus allowing infected files to be saved to your computer. This is not a major threat because real-time protection will block the malware when the infected files are accessed (opened, moved, copied or executed).

BITDEFENDER IS 2014 CONFIG_010_07072013_011802

  • Scan boot sectors.  You can set Bitdefender to scan the boot sectors of your hard disk. This sector of the hard disk contains the necessary computer code to start the boot process. When a virus infects the boot sector, the drive may become inaccessible and you may not be able to start your system and access your data.

  • Scan only new and changed files.  By scanning only new and changed files, you may greatly improve overall system responsiveness with a minimum trade-off in security.

  • Scan for keyloggers.  Select this option to scan your system for keylogger applications. Keyloggers record what you type on your keyboard and send reports over the Internet to a malicious person (hacker). The hacker can find out sensitive information from the stolen data, such as bank account numbers and passwords, and use it to gain personal benefits.

BITDEFENDER IS 2014 CONFIG_011_07072013_011805

Bitdefender will take the recommended actions depending on the type of detected file:

  • Infected files.  Files detected as infected match a malware signature in the Bitdefender Malware Signature Database. Bitdefender will automatically attempt to remove the malware code from the infected file and reconstruct the original file. This operation is referred to as disinfection. Files that cannot be disinfected are moved to quarantine in order to contain the infection. Quarantined files cannot be executed or opened; therefore, the risk of getting infected disappears.
  • Suspicious files.  Files are detected as suspicious by the heuristic analysis. Suspicious files cannot be disinfected, because no disinfection routine is available. They will be moved to quarantine to prevent a potential infection.

    By default, quarantined files are automatically sent to Bitdefender Labs in order to be analyzed by the Bitdefender malware researchers. If malware presence is confirmed, a signature is released to allow removing the malware.

  • Archives containing infected files. 

    • Archives that contain only infected files are deleted automatically.
    • If an archive contains both infected and clean files, Bitdefender will attempt to delete the infected files provided it can reconstruct the archive with the clean files. If archive reconstruction is not possible, you will be informed that no action can be taken so as to avoid losing clean files.
Move files to quarantine
Moves detected files to quarantine. Quarantined files cannot be executed or opened; therefore, the risk of getting infected disappears.
Deny access
In case an infected file is detected, the access to this will be denied.

The contents of your instant messages should remain between you and your chat partner. By encrypting your conversations, you can make sure anyone trying to intercept them on their way to and from your contacts will not be able to read their contents.

By default, Bitdefender encrypts all your instant messaging chat sessions provided that:

  • Your chat partner has a Bitdefender product installed that supports Chat Encryption and Chat Encryption is enabled for the instant messaging application used for chatting.
  • You and your chat partner use Yahoo! Messenger.

Whether it is your e-mail or your credit card number, when they fall into the wrong hands such information may cause you damage: you may find yourself drowning in spam messages or you might be surprised to access an emptied account.

Based on the rules you create, Data Protection scans the web, e-mail and instant messaging traffic leaving your computer for specific character strings (for example, your credit card number). If there is a match, the respective web page, e-mail or instant message is blocked.

You can create rules to protect any piece of information you might consider personal or confidential, from your phone number or e-mail address to your bank account information. Multiuser support is provided so that users logging on to different Windows user accounts can configure and use their own rules. If your Windows account is an administrator account, the rules you create can be configured to also apply when other users of the computer are logged on to their Windows user accounts.

We use our computers to shop online or pay our bills, to connect to social media platforms or log in with instant messaging applications.

But as everybody knows, it’s not always easy to remember the password!

And if we are not careful while browsing online, our private information, such as our e-mail address, our instant messaging ID or our credit card data can be compromised.

To keep your passwords or your personal data on a sheet of paper or in the computer can be dangerous because they can be accessed and used by people who want to steal and use that information. And to remember each password you have set for your online accounts or for your favorite websites is not an easy task.

Therefore, is there a way to make sure that we find our passwords when we need them? And can we rest assured that our secret passwords are always safe?

Wallet is the password manager that helps you keep track of your passwords, protects your privacy and provides a secure browsing experience.

Using a single master password to access your credentials, Wallet makes it easy for you to keep your passwords safe.

To offer the best protection for your online activities, Wallet is integrated with Bitdefender Safepay and provides a unified solution for the various ways in which your private data can be compromised.

Wallet protects the following private information:

  • Personal information, such as the e-mail address or the phone number
  • Login credentials for the websites
  • Bank account information or the credit card number
  • Access data to the e-mail accounts
  • Passwords for the applications
