Sponsored article: we explain how to use the Autopilot feature in Bitdefender Total Security 2013
In this video we'll explain what Autopilot is and how to turn it on and off.
Those familiar with Bitdefender Total Security 2012 should recognise the Autopilot. One of the most useful features in the software, it is designed with novice users in mind, but is also suitable for those who prefer not to manage updates and settings manually, and who do not wish to be alerted to events such as intercepted viruses.
Autopilot turns off warnings, notifications and messages from the antivirus software, leaving users free to enjoy using their computer.

All the same protection is still included, but the settings are changed so that none of the warning messages are displayed. If someone tries to download a malicious file it won't download, but a message saying it has been blocked won't be displayed.
Turning on Autopilot is simple. Look at the top right-hand corner of the screen and next to the head and shoulders symbol is the Autopilot button. Clicking on this will turn Autopilot on. Do the reverse to turn it off again.
Even with Bitdefender Total Security 2013 not open on the desktop you can still check if Autopilot is on or off. Hover the mouse cursor over the Bitdefender icon in the system tray or look for the small 'A' next to the logo.
