Been using Bitdefender for several years. I have had little to no problems. The App Lock feature is really good. Only Con is the Malware page graphics sucks. The circle that shows results is a half circle. The other half, I think, goes off the page. They need to fix it because it looks very unprofessional. The downgrade stars is because of the user interface Malware page.

Update: App now works. It does an adequate job of managing subscriptions for your devices and allowing remote control of said devces. However, expect to always have a Bitdefender product pushed on you while in the app. You are encouraged to download the VPN and parental controls constantly, even if you have those services from other providers available. Or to cover more devices, you may or may not have. AppLock does it's job, but the Network Scanner is inaccurate at best.

Unfortunately, I can't view any of my protected devices after signing into the app. What I have to do is clear the app data. Log in, and then I can see my protection status. If I close out of BitDefender Central and reopen, the screen just freezes. I love the concept of seeing all the devices on my phone. I just wish it would work any time I open the app. I am on Android version 13 and the device is a Samsung Galaxy S21 5G. Update: The latest app version fixes all the issues. Rating updated.
