Bitdefender End of Life Policy Statement

Microsoft has stopped offering support for Windows XP and Vista.

On the one hand, they’ve stopped releasing security updates to both XP and Vista, which means your PC is vulnerable to malware exploiting Windows vulnerabilities. On the other hand, hardware manufacturers have decided to invest their energy into developing compatibility options for newer Operating Systems – meaning they no longer fix or patch drivers for XP and Vista.

Time has come for us to stop delivering Bitdefender Security for XP & Vista due to Microsoft stopping support for these two operating systems.

Bitdefender End of Life Policy Statement

Bitdefender is committed to delivering innovative, effective security solutions to our customers. As technologies and threats evolve, Bitdefender continues to proactively develop and shape its solution set. The resulting new solutions and feature modifications often lead to a need for discontinuing older software revisions as well as products.

IMPORTANT: For any of the older Bitdefender products that have reached the End of Life, you can upgrade for free (using the license key you already have) to our latest products (shown in the “Migration Path” column). For information regarding the free upgrade, please check this article.
