Canadian Freebies: Bitdefender Total Security 2015 @ Daily Software Deals ($69.99 Value) (EXPIRED)
Are you looking for a free anti-virus for the New Year? Download Bitdefender Total Security 2015 for absolutely free at Daily Software Deals. This anti-virus, firewall, and spam control software package will keep your computer safe for an entire year. The free download is worth $69.99.
While I have heard of this software before, I do not know much about it. This is a total security package, meaning it offers a firewall, spam filter, anti-virus system, and more. According to Daily Software Deals, Bitfender provides:
device anti-theft, secure online storage and synchronization, tune-up and optimization, network protection (firewall), parental control, Cloud antispam, privacy protection on Facebook, and early warnings of risky, fraudulous websites
When price comparing, it is important to make sure you are comparing the right software. Bitdefender has three software packages available. The Total Security 2015 package has the most features as you can see in the chart below:
Bitdefender sells their own Total Security 2015 package for $71.96 US, for three users. The software requires Windows XP, Windows 7, or Windows 8. It is not compatible with Mac computers.
Now, I checked out reviews on this software, as I am not familiar with it. PC Mag rates the software 4.5/5 with the following conclusion:
Bitdefender Total Security 2015 includes just about every security feature you could imagine, and they all work well. It's a mega-suite Editors' Choice.
I also checked out download.com where the editors gave the software a 'very good' rating of 3.5/5 stars. Customers tended to rate the software a tad lower, at 3/5 stars. The editors noted that the software scanned quickly and is packed with security and privacy features that you will love. They also highly recommended uninstalling any previous anti-virus software before installing Bitdefender Total Security 2015.
For free, I think this is a great purchase. I really hate paying for an anti-virus system when I paid so much money for my computer to begin with. I also have to pay exorbitant amounts of money to Shaw for internet each month, so any way I can save money on my computer, I will.
