Bitdefender Antivirus Plus is a Windows program used to protect against security threats such as malware. It comes with a variety of features including Wi-Fi Security Advisor, File Shredder, and SafePay.

Antivirus Plus protects against malware, which includes viruses, ransomware, and phishing attacks. The program provides a Wi-Fi Security Advisor that checks the security level of public networks and your home network to verify that they are safe and makes safety recommendations. When you visit financial sites where transactions take place Bitdefender opens SafePay, a secure desktop environment and browser that allows you to perform financial transactions.

The software offers a password management tool called Wallet that works with Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer browsers. Wallet remembers your login credentials from different sites you use much like Apple's Keychain Access for OS X. The tool also lets you manually add login information and passwords for applications. Another safety feature that comes with Antivirus Plus is File Shredder, which is a secure deletion utility that overwrites files with sensitive information before deletion so they cannot be recovered by other users.

Antivirus Plus is primarily used for home users and is available at differing prices depending on the length of coverage and the number of devices under protection. Bitdefender Antivirus Plus boasts impressive virus detection rates and offers helpful tools such as SafePay and Wi-Fi Security Advisor that make it one of the best security programs for protecting your PC.
