Keep your digital assets and online presence private at any time and under any circumstances with the newest app from worldwide security provider Bitdefender.
Bitdefender Mobile Security is a free application designed to keep your sensitive data safe against prying eyes.
Features at a glance
With Bitdefender VPN, you can stop worrying about privacy on the web. It protects your online presence by encrypting all Internet traffic. Bitdefender secures your device’s connection while you’re connected to public WiFi hotspots, cellular data networks and other public locations.
Browse freely with Bitdefender Mobile Security, thanks to a newly added feature called Web Protection. No matter the browser you’re using, you can simply turn Web Protection “ON” and we will block any dishonest pages going after your personal information such as your credit card details or social security number.
Find out whether your email accounts have been leaked. Is your account still private? Simply validate your email address with the app and Bitdefender Mobile Security will run a check to discover if your privacy has been breached and let you know if it’s time to change passwords.

Ratings and Reviews
Only one of the functions seems to be useful and that’s the Account Privacy. I don’t know why I have to make a specific check instead of BD keeping a check all the time.
I agree with another reviewer that 200Mb free traffic is totally inadequate. And I haven’t yet worked out whether, having turned the VPN on, I can turn it off again. It doesn’t look possible. So you turn it on because you’re going to transmit sensitive data and then you’re stuck with it. Even if you don’t need to send sensitive data again for hours.
Also, where’s the warnings? In various circumstances, a badge should appear on the app icon to warn that there’s a problem.
There seems to be little that a user can actually DO, so I suppose that’s why there’s little in the way of guidance.
Overall, the user should be much more in control.
I had an issue that now escapes me but, as a result, I deleted the app from my iPhone while Support was supposed to fix the issue. But my previous difficulty led to closer attention to what the app is supplied to be. And the first contradiction is that the app is presented as being “free”. I already have a licence/subscription for 5 devices used in the desktop environment. How can the app be “free” if the mobile device is added to the desktop licence/subscription? And, again, if the app is “free”, why is there any reference to subscriptions in the App Store description?

We have sent a request to our development team to add the option to scan automatically for leaks.
You should be able to turn off the VPN and in case you have some issue regarding this, please provide us more details.

Free version works, paid version does not
I purchased the VPN annual subscription after testing it out on the free version. It worked well for 5 months and then one day started throwing an error 4865 and wouldn’t connect. I am quite technical but couldn’t get it to work through reinstalls and checking settings etc. I tried on several IOS devices, different ISP networks and I even created a new account to test. I reported it to their customer service and had some correspondence explaining that it seems to be something to do with the location setting in IOS because the free version (200mb limit) still works fine. It is only when I try to use the account that I have actually PAID a lot of money for, that this connection fails. I am now almost at the end of my annual subscription and have had about 7 months of abject failure from this company to make this work. Seems other reviewers are experiencing similar things from the many 1 star reviews. Avoid this VPN, there are others that are better, that actually work!
No Password Manager ??
Just changed from Norton 360 to Bitdefender for my PCs, after quite a few recommendations from friends. Happy with it so far, but also downloaded the mobile security version for iPad, and......no Wallet or Password Manager! I'm really surprised and disappointed that there seems no facility to sync the PC wallet and password manager with the mobile app - seems an obvious thing for most people, and a very, very strange omission.
So, at least until Bitdefender gets its act together on this, and provides a synced Password Manager integrated with Safari, I guess I'll need to carry on using the Norton Password Manager.
Overall, apart from the VPN, there doesn't seem much point to this App right now. I hope Bitdefender plans to develop it into something of actual use to anyone!
