The security firm Bitdefender has updated its VPN service (opens in a new tab), with new features that enhance privacy, identity protection, and security.
Bitdefender PremiumVPN (opens in new window) Now includes anti-tracker and ad blocking models, as well as whitelisting capabilities. This will allow users to browse the web privately and securely on all their devices.
According to latest research (PDF), most consumers are extremely at risk because they aren’t using any VPN services or anti-trackers, ads blockers (44%) and privacy software (opens in a new tab) of any type (64%) on their personal devices that access the internet.
Ciprian Istrate, Bitdefender Consumer Solutions’ Vice President, explained in a Press Release (opens in new window) why Bitdefender has decided to enhance its VPN service by adding new privacy protection features.
It has become more difficult for consumers to keep their privacy online and protect their data. Bitdefender Premium VPN has anti-tracking and ad blocking capabilities. This allows users to enjoy their favorite online activities while being protected and anonymous.
Anti-tracking and Ad-blocking
Bitdefender Premium VPN secures all outgoing and inbound web traffic across Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and Android devices using Bitdefender’s 4,000 VPN server (opens in new window) from 49 countries. This allows customers to access geo-blocked content, but also protects their online identities from hackers, ISPs, and other third parties.

The latest version of its VPN includes a native ad blocking module that removes banners, pop ups, and even video ads from websites. This improves the browsing experience. Blocking intrusive ads helps users save bandwidth and reduces the likelihood of adware (opens new tab).
Bitdefender’s anti-tracking feature prevents advertisers and websites from collecting location, device type and other data about its users’ online activities to prevent online profiling.
Bitdefender Premium VPN now allows users to whitelist trusted sites so they can make exceptions from ad blocking or ant-tracking features. This is done by adding URLs of trusted domains (opens in new window) to a whitelist.
Bitdefender’s VPN service works on Windows, macOS and iOS devices. The company’s new anti-tracker, ad blocking, and whitelist capabilities are available to all users.
