If the license for your Bitdefender product expired or if it's about to expire soon, now is a good time to renew it.

You can do it right now and it only takes a few minutes!

So let's get right to it:

How to Renew or Upgrade Bitdefender

  1. First, you will need to purchase a license. If you're using the Bitdefender Antivirus, now is a good time to upgrade to Internet Security or Total Security Multi Device because you can enjoy a 30% discount when you renew or upgrade your subscription.

    So, go to the Bitdefender site by clicking the "Visit Site" button below and come back here for further instructions once you've completed the purchase.

  3. Click the "Account Info" section.
