What is Bitdefender Central and how to use it

Besides offering the best protection for your systems, we want you to have the smoothest experience managing and using your Bitdefender products on all of your systems (Windows based, MAC systems and Android Mobile devices). That is why we created Bitdefender Central.

Bitdefender Central is the web platform where you have access to the product’s online features and services and can remotely perform important tasks on devices Bitdefender is installed on. You can log in to your Bitdefender account from any computer or mobile device connected to the Internet by accessing this link.
