Bitdefender Total Security 2020 is the company's full-strength, no-compromise security suite.

The suite has the same core features as Bitdefender Internet Security, a powerful mix of antivirus, firewall, browsing protection, parental controls, anti-theft system, encryption, ransomware protection and password manager.

New features include a Webcam Protection module which notifies you when apps try to access your webcam, and blocks unauthorised usage.

"Advanced Threat Defense" is a new technology which tries to identify suspect processes from their behaviour, keeping you safe from the very latest malware.

The "Safe Files" modules protect selected files from unauthorized changes. Right now this is available for Mac only, but it'll be arriving for Windows soon.

The Bitdefender Firewall makes it easier for users to understand and use the module and includes a brand new interface, too.

Total Security gives you a one-click optimizer, an anti-theft module, a startup optimizer to streamline and speed up how your computer boots and a disk cleanup tool.

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

Bitdefender Total Security 2020 doesn't seem to have anything radically new, but as it's a great product anyway we're not too concerned.
