Doesn't work properly with Mojave

I've just update to Mojave and installed the latest Bit Defender update that apparently adds support for Mojave.
It doesn't work though - it keeps telling me to allow permissions for full disc access (which it has).
Hopefully a proper fix will be available very soon or I will be uninstalling it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. This issue was addressed. Please check if you are still asked for permissions.

Good but not great

Please add an option do disable the update report notifications and show notifications only when there is a found virus.

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. You may disable its Notifications from System Preferences -> Notifications.

Updates downloads issue

I am removing this program from my Mac because it seems to be unable to determine that my Mac is actually ‘online’ and consequently I often receive a message informing me that the update download was unsuccessful because there was no Internet connection even though I was online. Back to a more robust and recognised company for my anti-virus support.
