You may turn the mode off though if you want more control.

The main interface has changed quite a bit while the overall dark theme has not much.

Instead of listing the three core modules Protection, Privacy and Tools in the interface, Bitdefender changed what is displayed there.

Bitdefender Total Security 2016 can be downloaded from the official website as a 30-day trial version.

The version that is offered on the main website is a web installer, which means that most data will be downloaded when the program is installed on a system running Windows.

If you prefer offline installers, download the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Bitdefender Total Security 2016 using the following links (official Bitdefender site downloads).

The 32-bit offline installer has a size of 307 Megabyte, the 64-bit offline installer one of 346 Megabyte. You find one option listed in the installer to submit data anonymously to Bitdefender which you can uncheck to avoid that from happening.

What you cannot do however is disable certain features that you are not interested in. One thing that has changed in comparison to Total Security 2015 is that you are required to create an account and sign in to that account to use the application at all.

Bitdefender Total Security 2016 runs on autopilot by default.

It highlights to you whether the system is protected and safe, and when the last update was downloaded and installed.

Autopilot attempts to make decisions for you so that your work is not interrupted by the majority of prompts or notifications that the program may throw at you.
