Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2020 is the latest edition of Bitdefender's feature-packed antivirus package.

At the core of the program is an accurate and reliable antivirus engine, generally rated by independent testing labs as one of the best around (check out AV-Comparatives' latest Real-World Protection tests here)..

Other products might stop there, but Bitdefender piles on the extras: browsing protection, a password manager, online banking security, a search advisor to highlight threats in your search engine links, and a vulnerability scanner.

Bitdefender 2020 includes much-improved ransomware protection. The suite can now store your most important files in special folders which trusted applications will be able to access as usual-- but everything else gets firmly locked out.

Bitdefender 2019 launched the new Wifi Security Advisor, a one-click tool which quickly checks all available wireless networks and highlights any security vulnerabilities.

It's an impressive feature list, but if you need more, Bitdefender Internet Security 2020 extends the package with a firewall, antispam, parental controls, file shredding and encryption.

What's new in 2020?

- Introduces browser anti-tracking for both Windows and Mac OS
- Upgraded malware detection engines to stop the newest variants of those spreading threats
- Introduces the option to upgrade to the new Parental Control Premium
- New “Detection of Cyberbullying and Online Predators” feature, available in English-speaking countries, uses AI algorithms to scan online conversations for potential bullying, inappropriate photo requests or exchanges, meeting invites from strangers and disclosure of personal information like a home address or credit card details

Verdict:

Its core security features remain largely unchanged, but the new anti-ransomware technology is worthwhile improvement, and overall Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2020 is an excellent antivirus tool.
