Excellent. This is the consumer version of their enterprise product, Gravity Zone. Great insight and management for a variety of devices and operating systems. In the 18 months of using it I have not had any issues. Currently managing 42 devices, Windows, Mac, Android and iOS. It helps me to identify issues in real time and prevent them from becoming a problem. Bitdefender may not be a household word like other security products, but their detection, protection and remediation is outstanding.

I use this app in conjunction with Bitdefender Total Security. I use the Parental Control in an attempt to block inappropriate web content and to check in with the "Locate" feature. So far, I have found that it doesn't provide enough information or an alert when an inappropriate website is blocked nor does the "Locate" feature work. The phone could be sitting next to me, but "Locate" shows the phone a few miles away. This is not a free app so I expect to receive what I'm paying for.

First of all the bit Defender Box 2 has all sorts of connection issues, downloading and uploading documents from both Android and Apple mobile devices is impossible. A majority of the apps on these devices also have issues connecting when using the bit Defender Box 2 as the router, if I turn off the WiFi and use mobile data, the apps work flawlessly. The bit Defender central app itself is junk filled with vapor ware, the scan network ability doesn't recognize 99% of the devices connected the net
