BullGuard Antivirus Review

Written by Jason Lee -

Product Overview

BullGuard offers a lot of antivirus bang for the buck. The features included in their entry-level software puts it a cut above other antivirus software.

It comes equipped with all the necessary protections needed in today's digital age, with other features to boot.

Security

Where BullGuard lacks features, it makes up for it with the range of features it does include.

BullGuard shows its strengths through blocking malware and malicious sites. The firewall also resists today's commons threats from gaining access to your computer.

Parental controls and internet filters are a big plus for use on family computers. These can help safeguard your kids from any potential online threats. In their premium product, BullGuard allows you to watch what your child does on social media pages. This can allow you to be sure they aren't where they shouldn't be.

Where it lacks in features, such as a file shredder, it makes up for it with others. One such feature is the online backup option. This safeguards your files, allowing you to restore your device should it be compromised.

Performance

System performance did take a hit during some scans. There was also some issues with malware detection and receiving many notifications about it.

Real-time monitoring often was a hindrance than a benefit as it blocked the same file many times. This would often happen just once.

The parental controls included would give peace of mind to many parents. Be cautious when using it, as some controls may be worked around by tech-savvy kids.

The spam filter available in the premium products does at times miss spam emails.
