Have anti-virus protection is one of the most important things to have on your computer. It decreases the risk of your computer being hacked, important information being stolen, and your device is damaged. There are many anti-virus programs on the market. Two of those are Bitdefender and Norton.

Though they both help with preventing viruses from taking control of the computer, there are differences between the features that both offer. Bitdefender gives vault storage. The purpose of this storage is to hold the user's files and add an extra layer of protection. An additional feature that Norton has is parental controls, which can control which items children have access to.
