Both of them offer additional features like the VPN as well as shredder for files, and other privacy security.
Avira and Bitdefender both have top overall scores in independent labs of testing. In this test, Bitdefender wins due to its superior performance in the AV Comparatives’ Performance Test. This test evaluates the impact security software plays on a computer’s performance. The low score indicates that it is able to run in the background without significantly slowing down your PC- unlike some competitors.
AV-Comparatives evaluates the impact of each product on system performance for example, when you perform regular computer tasks like browsing websites, downloading and copying files. Bitdefender was the only contender to pass this test with a perfect score, while Avira was a close second.
Both offer a superior level of customer service. Avira has a great knowledge base and YouTube channel, whereas Bitdefender offers a complete support hub that includes a phone line as well as live chat, email support and videos of tutorials.
