Home computer use: security: Bitdefender Safepay

Using a PC can involve constant self-tutoring. The tutor shares his discovery of Bitdefender Safepay.

As I’ve come to understand, Bitdefender Safepay is a secure browser that can be invoked from the Bitdefender suite (I have, I believe, Bitdefender Total Security). The idea is that you can browse with Safepay (as opposed to your regular browser) for extra security.

While Bitdefender Safepay might mainly play to people doing transactions online, it can be used as a general-purpose browser. For sites you log into, like blogs or membership sites, (as well as, of course, transaction situations), it offers a virtual keyboard through which you can enter the credentials. Using the virtual keyboard protects against keyboard-monitoring malware.

I like Safepay as just a regular browser; I don’t do much in the way of transactions, but I do log into blogs, membership sites, etc.
