I installed Bitdefender but the installer window remains on the screen

In some instances, the Bitdefender Installer window might remain on the screen of your computer after you successfully installed Bitdefender Antivirus for Mac. The window remains open, even after you have restarted your device.

4. Restart your Mac in normal mode and reinstall Bitdefender Antivirus for Mac using a new kit from Central. See more details in the installation article.

5. If the Bitdefender Installer window reappears, restart your Mac once more and make sure you disable “Reopen windows when logging back in”.

6. If the issue persists after, open a Bitdefender ticket or reply on the one you already opened and:
