Bitdefender Privacy Report

Privacy Rating
Bitdefender - DNS Leak Test  - Product Header Image

While Bitdefender has several security measures available, like regular, automatic software updates and encryption, users need to turn these features on manually. In addition, Bitdefender shares user information with third parties, and there’s no way for users to get it deleted. Finally, Bitdefender has been breached before, and the hackers got away with unencrypted passwords, contributing to Bitdefender’s detractions.
