Customer Reviews

What an incredible peice of $%&! Feces dipped in crap, rolled in dung.

I have reported several problems with Virus Scanner Plus, including it crashing when I turn Continuous Scan off (temporarily). Each and every time, BitDefender has asked me to (again and again) uninstall and reinstall the software and/or manually delete files on my system using Apple Terminal.

There are a lot of words I could use to describe Virus Scanner Plus, but none of them are appropriate for this forum. Let’s just suffice to say that “good” or “stable” are not among them.

And Bitdefender Support was dreadful. I got the same response for every problem I found. "Uninstall and reinstall” over and over again. At one point, Bitdefender had me try AntiVirus for Mac (which is much more expensive). I was guaranteed the problems I was having with Virus Scanner Plus did not exist in Bitdefender Antivirus for Mac.

They lied.

I had all of the same problems plus new ones to add to the ever growing list.

Try Sophos Free Antivirus for Mac. It’s free and its not stuffed with issues. Most importantly, it doesn’t hang or (worse yet) crash.

Trust me, keep looking. It is better to do without than to pay good money for junk, be lied to and treated like a guinea pig.
