How do I update Bitdefender offline?

by Ailsa Johnson Bitdefender Support UK

Constant updates to the virus definition are important for the proper your computer system. Luckily enough, even the most prominent anti-virus applications understand this need. For this very reason, they have included an offline update facility if the internet connection is not a viable option. In that sense, Bitdefender antivirus application provides the most filling and complete set of updates one could hope for.

Bitdefender Support presents you the offline way to update your antivirus software

Upgrading your virus definitions offline might be a suitable option in some circumstances, but it is not by any means an alternative to the common way to upgrade your antivirus. The reason given behind this is that the offline method of upgrade entails a large software download that burdens up a system’s hardware even further. On the other hand, in case there is an issue with the auto-update utility of Bitdefender, the offline utility is nothing short of a godsend.

1.Download the latest update: In this step, make sure that you go a legitimate website to download the requisite files. There are several fraudulent sites out there that provide malicious files of the same name and the same size. To that end, the official website is your best option.

2.Start the downloading wizard: Once you have downloaded the virus definitions, install it the same way you would install any other software. It would automatically pick up the location of the installed application. Therefore, you do not have to face the hassle to provide it with the appropriate install destination. The team of Bitdefender Technical Support UK believes that this automated installation is the fastest way to update the application in order to make the system as secure as possible.

3.Calibrate the antivirus after installation: After you are done with the installation process, you have to calibrate Bitdefender. This is not some complex process; all you have to do is run a quick scan just once. Applying the scan would refresh the currently installed definitions and calibrate the antivirus application according to them.

As already established, an offline method of update is not an alternative to full online integrated updates. The basic difference between the two is: 1) Not setup required for online mode and 2) Bitdefender calibrates at the same time the update is taking place. If in case, the online upgrade functionality of the antivirus is compromised. You must first seek out to fix that malfunction before you move on the offline mode.

The above method is rather easy to follow. But, in case the offline update does not pan out, you can contact our specialists using the toll free Bitdefender Support Number UK (0800-046-5200). The experts there would assist you with a lot more than just the updates. On a final note, offline update is just an alternative, but not a substantial substitute. To that end, the experts will also assist you in getting the online update functionality back on track.
