free-antivirus-bitdefender

There are several Anti- virus manufacturers that  are providing  some of their products for free as means of promoting their paid versions. BitDefender joins them by  launching  three free versions of their products as a means to make themselves better known.

BitDefender Free Edition
This is a virus scanner that runs on demand. That means it  does not offer real-time protection against viruses , so you have to do  manual scan.

BitDefender Anti-Phishing Free Edition
This is  an add-on for Internet Explorer and Firefox  which makes browsing more secure against phishing attempts  by blocking the malicious web pages that steal  data and other critical personal information.

BitDefender Chat Encryption
Enables secure communications to users of Yahoo Messenger or Windows Live Messenger by encrypting the messages or conversations  that we go through these instant messaging programs.  The encryption process is completely automatic and transparent to the user.

Personally, I think the free virus scanner should  provide real-time protection, as many of the present free Anti virus editions are providing real time protection,but the other two applications can be very helpful to protect our data and our conversations.
