This app has almost none of the real functionality as the browser page for bit defender's absolutely useless. Also there is a bug going on for 2 years now where protected devices show up as being unprotected, despite the device showing it is protected when you open bit defender on that device, and bitdefender doesn't have skilled enough developers to get this fixed. It's a joke.*I am already in contact with BD support about this with an open case, for 2 years. BD understand fine.*

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.
