Bitdefender and Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts


I use both Windows and Macs on a daily basis, and because of getting a cheap deal back in the early days of Malwarebytes I still have a licence for it. Under Windows, I am running both BD and MB together, with no problem. Indeed, they seem to complement one another.  I would appreciate any views on whether it is a good idea on a Mac, or pointless, also if anyone has already done it. I get the point that one security suit is usually enough. So I would only add it if there performance doesn't collapse and it would improve security.

The two use different approaches to malware detection and as long as you don't allow both to be doing real-time/on-access detection you should have no problem having them co-exist. I have a half-dozen or so anti-malware products installed (most free, including BitDefender) for testing purposes and they all get along just fine.
