While Bullguard can handle both malware and viruses, it is better known for handling the latter. It comes equipped with a backup solution to back up some of your most critical files as well as a tune-up feature to keep your PC running smoothly.
BullGuard comes in three different packages: the BullGuard Antivirus, the BullGuard Internet Security, and the BullGuard Premium Protection. BullGuard Antivirus is sold for $23.96 and offers basic protection for one device for 12 months. It comes with anti-ransomware, a vulnerability scanner, and game booster. This standard edition is ideal for those who do not have the need for extra features.
BullGuard Internet Security includes everything from the basic package as well as parental controls, email/spam blocking, PC TuneUp and firewall protection for up to three devices. This package is sold for $29.97 for a whole year. The Premium Protection package adds Financial Protection and Identity Protection along with a password manager for $39.98.
Separate from the three main packages is BullGuard Mobile Security. The Mobile Security package is designed to protect your Android device from cyber threats and is available in two versions: the free version and the premium version.
BullGuard is ideal for users that want a simple antivirus solution. It’s easy to download and install so that you can use it right away. It’s also good for users who need protection for multiple devices throughout the year, and also good due to its 24/7 support. The tech support also supports multiple languages, so if English isn’t your primary language then this antivirus solution is for you.
In the realm of cyber security, Kaspersky and McAfee are considered easy to use. BullGuard can be added among them as one of the most user-friendly antivirus programs on the market. The dashboard contains useful information that tells you the current state of your PC. You have three scan options available at your disposal: quick, full, and vulnerability scans. The software also doesn’t take up too much space on your hard drive.
When it comes to scanning for traditional viruses, BullGuard always scores at the top.
Strangely enough, Bullguard doesn’t offer any phone tech support. Instead it offers live chat that is available 24/7. The chat is mainly geared towards customers that speak Spanish, English and Chinese as their mother tongue. For folks who live in the Netherlands, Denmark, France, Sweden or Germany, live support is provided during working hours between 9AM to 5PM. An email inquiry will usually get a response within 24 hours.
BullGuard also has Twitter and Facebook pages that are active, and are quick to answer right away. The forums are packed with people, with the company blog being constantly updated with new posts. The FAQ section on the main website is detailed and offers manuals with guides that are straight-forward.
