How to configure the Game Profile

During a gaming session, you can configure the Bitdefender Game Profile in order to enjoy an uninterrupted gaming experience. You can find more information in our friendly guide below.


What is the Game Profile in Bitdefender?

Bitdefender detects when you play, work or watch a movie, so it knows not to bother you with unnecessary requests. Depending on what you are doing, Bitdefender temporarily halts pop-ups, adjusts visual settings, and pauses unimportant background activities, so you can enjoy your device to the max. Enjoying an uninterrupted gaming experience is all about reducing system load and diminishing slowdowns. While running in Game Profile, Bitdefender uses behavioral heuristics along with a list of known games to automatically detect running games and optimize your system resources so that you can enjoy your gaming break.

According to your activity, the following product settings are applied when the Game Profile is activated:

  • All Bitdefender alerts and pop-ups are disabled
  • Automatic Update is postponed
  • Scheduled scans are postponed
  • Search Advisor is disabled
  • Special offers notifications are disabled
