Romania-based Cybersecurity firm BitDefender has added a new security feature to safeguard its users from chat based cyber threats. The company has introduced a ‘Chat Protection’ feature to users using popular messaging apps like Messenger, WhatsApp, Discord and Telegram.
BitDefender Mobile Security feature assists customers in protecting against malware spread and phishing scams. Now with the chat protection help, users will get alerts and advise them not to forward a message as it looks suspicious or fraud.
However, the feature is available for a premium of $16 per year and includes a VPN access in the pay. It covers devices operating on Windows, macOS, Android and iOS devices, which is outstanding.
