A new feature of Bitdefender Total Security 2013 is the security widget. This gives users easy access to some of the most important features without needing to open up the full software. Files can be dragged and dropped on to the widget to be scanned and it also shows how hard the scanner and firewall tools are working.
One of the most interesting updates is Bitdefender Safepay. This is a special browser that works in isolation from the Windows operating system. It is designed for when people need to pay for something online. The Safepay feature displays a pop-up window when a user attempts to pay for something online or log in to online banking. People can then use the Safepay browser to complete the transaction more securely.
