Bitdefender offers Search Advisor, security feature which scans the links for search results displayed on major Search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo and for Twitter and shows links you about to click in your browser are safe or not with red or green icon. On Mouse hover the icon, it tells the page is safe to visit or not. Search advisor feature is available for Bitdefender’s Antivirus, Internet Security and Total Security products. One downside of the Search Advisor is on the search results pages its spinning icons always loads slowly, makes you annoy.
