      Bitdefender Forum Rules - Read carefully before posting   09/13/2016

      BitDefender Forum RULES (PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING)   First, please register with the Official BitDefender Support Forum if you are not currently a member (it is free). You will need to use a valid email address, and follow the instructions to validate your membership. Then you can post.   Click here to reach the registration page: Register   GLOBAL RULES   Welcome to the BitDefender Forum!   Please understand that once you have registered as a new user, you consequently agree with ALL THE FORUM RULES written below.
      These rules were designed to ensure you get the most from interacting with other users in a pleasant and constructive manner and to prevent any sort of abuse.   GENERAL RULES   1.
      First and foremost, this is a support forum for BitDefender. Do NOT post comparative tests for security software for they are unrelated to the main character of the forum. Also, the support process can take many forms: a troubleshooting routine is meant to locate the cause of the issue not offer a permanent solution –do NOT post replies in the form of "I need a fix now" instead of the information requested for without locating the cause there isn't any way to implement a fix.   2.
      Once an official position has been posted concerning a bug in BitDefender and the ETA for the fix, the topic will be closed down. Do not ask for the topic to be reopened unless you still have the bug after the update targeted to handle this issue.   3.
      Users that have reached a 50% warn level will have their posts subjected to moderator approval and if they continue to ignore forum rules their account will be banned.   4.
      Users are not allowed to use clones(using more than one account by a single person). Breaking this rule will lead to a permanent IP ban.   5.
      Users are not allowed to use anonymous proxy. Breaking this rule will first result in a warning, followed by subjecting the user's posts to moderator approval/banning of the account.   6.
      When reporting an issue concerning BitDefender make sure to offer the following basic information:
      - name and version of your BitDefender product;
      - name and version of your Operating System;
      - the complete error message (if any) that you receive and, if possible, attach a screenshot with it;
      - name of other security solutions that you are running;
      - when asking questions about (un)detected files (false alarms, or files that you suspect to be infected, but aren't detected), please attach a complete BitDefender scan log. Be sure to keep BitDefender fully updated so the log contains accurate info – on the support forum we only accept the posting of scan logs, for sample submission of false positive/false negative samples please upload them onto a web based platform where we can retrieve and analyze them.   7.
      Topics related to the lack of response from the support department need to be backed up by as much information as possible concerning the issue that you have been facing. When you send an e-mail to support a Ticket ID will automatically be created - make sure to mention it in the forum post for it will speed up the entire process.   8.
      Moderators do NOT offer support by PM. Do not send personal messages to moderators unless they expressly request it from your side/ you wish to have a closed topic re-opened/ you wish to report a forum member or topic for abusive language or spam/ you are unsure as to posting a possible solution and you wish to consult with a moderator first. All users are treated as equal on this forum and by sending a PM to a moderator you will not be entitled to faster support.
      In case of rule violation reports, you can also use the built-in Report button to announce all moderators that there's a topic/post/user that violated the posting rules. Please do NOT use this function to ask for help, or announce the moderating team that you need urgent support! As said, all issues are handled as fast as possible, and none has priority over another.  
      9.
      Any form of aggressive language, directed at other forum members or at the BitDefender Moderating Team or staff is completely forbidden. Continuous attacks will result in an account suspension or BAN.
      Also, any form of explicit, antisemitic or racial language, or social attacks (by images, text, PMs, signature, or any other form of communication on BitDefender forum) will NOT be tolerated and will result in an immediately account BAN.
      Please take into consideration that this forum a public place. Treat everyone else just like you want to be treated.   10. Users are not allowed to open polls on the BitDefender Support Forum. The only members that are allowed to open polls are the moderators.   FORUM SIGNATURES, AVATARS AND DISPLAY NAMES   The signature is optional on the forum, and should be a personal message of the user that chooses it.
      Moderators are obliged to include a link for the BitDefender Forum Rules in their signature.
      Users will only be allowed to display a custom signature after having completed 15 posts on the forum.   The following will NOT be tolerated:
      1. Any type of explicit reference to the brand name and symbols of other security solutions available on the international market today, except BitDefender. This is a support forum dedicated only to BitDefender and advertising competitor products will lead to editing out the advertisement and a 20% increase in the warn level.
      2. The use of images higher than 300 pixels width and/or 100 pixels height.
      3. The use of images or text containing the words "Moderator", "Administrator" or "Admin" in the signatures. These will only confuse other users.
      4. The use of images taken from other users of this forum. Please use unique avatars.
      5. Use of signatures pointing to external links,they will be removed without any notice.
      WARNINGS   Those who repeatedly violate these rules will receive a warn/suspend/ban.   POSTING RULES   1.
      Topic titles must be as concise as possible, and starting posts must provide relevant information on the issues included, to ensure a fast and precise response from those who are willing to help. For example: avoid titles such as "Heeeeeelp!" but instead write "Question about the BitDefender Antivirus". The last title has a lot more chances of receiving fast responses. Also, topic titles such as "Program X ######! " together with the lack of any constructive arguments will not be tolerated, the topic will be deleted and the user will receive a 20% warning.   2.
      Post new topics in the correct sections. The forum is structured by Product type (Home/Office or Business protection) and by product version (2008, 2009, 2010 or older versions). If you post the question in the correct section, you have a higher chance of getting a correct answer for your problems.  
      3.
      Bumps/Topic advertisments or any other attempts to make a topic more visible without adding any new or relevant information will NOT be tolerated and the post will be DELETED.  
      4.
      When posting a reply on a topic try to keep the suggestion within a relevant range – for example, when there is a post concerning an error message in BitDefender 2009 do not recommend downgrading to BitDefender 2008 for this suggestion does not address the original issue. Multiple posting of this type will lead to an increase of the warn level with 20%.   5.
      Off topic replies (those that have nothing to do with the topic) will be deleted, and users will also receive a written warning . Repeated posting of offtopic replies will lead to an increase in the warn level with 10%.   6.
      Keep text color, fonts and letter casing within a normal and pleasant range - any post that contains only upper case text will automatically be subjected to editing, the same applies to posts containing characters larger than size 20.   7.
      Before opening a new topic, we strongly suggest that you use the SEARCH button, to be sure that the problem was not already discussed. In case you start a new topic with an issue that was already discussed, the new topic will be closed down, redirected and merged into the initial one.   8.
      Do not ask the same thing on more sections of the forum. Do not post the same topic more than once. Twin topics will be removed and redirected to the original one in order to avoid confusion.   9.
      Do NOT request/post warez software, cracks, serial numbers or any other actions which involve software piracy. Topics and replies related to cracking security software, advice on breaching security systems, cracking security protocols, flood attacks or posts that promote cracking or Internet attacks in any way will be deleted at once and the users that posted them will have their accounts suspended at once. Also, no support will be offered for users that are using a cracked version of BitDefender on their systems.   10.
      Please avoid topic titles such as "URGENT" since all cases are treated as soon as possible.   11.
      Please be patient – there are a lot of issues on the forum and we are doing the best we can to answer them all. Therefore, you may receive your answer immediately, but it may also take several days just as well.   12.
      We do not allow people to post threads that advertise or solicit any products, services, funds or donations – all topics of this type will be automatically DELETED . Explicit advertising is also prohibited.  
      FORUM RULES ARE SUBJECTED TO CONTINUOUS MODERATION AND CAN BE CHANGED AT ANY GIVEN TIME WITHOUT PRIOR NOTIFICATION. ANY TOPIC DEBATING FORUM RULES WILL BE CLOSED DOWN AND AUTOMATICALLY DELETED FOR THESE RULES ARE NOT SUBJECTED TO DEBATE.   Have a nice day,
      The BitDefender Team.

Safepay And Wallet

17 posts in this topic

OK, this may be a bit embarrasing...

The Wallet program won't fill in automatically the necessary credentials to log in to a bank when in Safepay. The boxes stay empty, and I have to type in both login and password manually.

In fact Wallet does not seem to be able to automatically fill in any kind of information from the 'online banking' tab, only that from the 'websites' - but in Safepay the latter does not work either.

Is there a way to somehow configure these two facets so that logging into my bank will not be too much of a hassle?

Well, the automatic part integration is not present in Safepay.

There were some heated discussion if Wallet should fill automatic or to be just for manual use (for security reasons mainly), and it is planned to be done just as for the other browsers as well. Thing is it will take a little longer, since Safepay, as you may now, have no extensions at all (while Wallet have for other browsers, this is how it works in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome), so it will be implemented directly inside browser.

I cannot estimate a date when this will be done (we're near GM release and we have other critical features to release), but rest assured we will do it.

Most likely will be an update containing the better integration with Wallet.

Regards,

Cristian

Well, thanks for informing us AFTER the fact. Why is this (non) feature advertised as an auto fill available now?

Very disappointed and misleading.

If you check the product page (http://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/safepay.html), it does not advertise Wallet.

Wallet is part of Classic Line products (Internet Security, Total Security) and not (yet) part of Safepay standalone.

Although the user interface looks the same, there are vast differences on how Safepay integrates - standalone version does not integrates in HTTP traffic to display alerts, uses internal routing, its own service, scans at startup (Classic line does not) and more.

While I understand your disappointment, I think you read the main line product advertising and not Safepay's, hence the confusion.

Personally, I prefer that Wallet not fill in the blanks for my bank, etc. If in Safepay I am glad that Wallet does not fill in the passwords.

That's a pretty lame excuse. So we're supposed to read the fine print on a web page instead of having the product behave as any normal user would expect it to? Since Wallet is accessible within Safepay, most of us stupid users probably think you can use it within Safepay. What's the point of storing a password here? You can't even toggle it on long enough to copy and paste. My Solution: turn Wallet OFF and wish I'd thought a bit longer before choosing Bitdefender over Kaspersky...

Exactly--you are 100% correct. I am running a trial of Total Security as I write this, and the first time I used Wallet was within Safepay. When I started setting up Wallet from within Safepay, I noticed things like:

* Each time you enter the master password, it says "Your password is required to ... allow Wallet to autofill your credentials."

* On the Websites tab, Wallet says "Browse faster online while using the Wallet. It automatically fills your logins online while keeping them completely secured."

Again, it says this while using Wallet within Safepay. Blaming users for thinking the product does what it clearly says it does is not appropriate.

I actually found this thread because I searched to find out why Wallet's autofill feature wasn't working in Safepay!

I too would like to know what's happening with passwords within SafePay, it's a very useful feature to say the least. If you don't allow it then BD should at least allow a very small number of reputable addons such as Lastpass.

The Wallet is built-into Safepay, but will not auto-fill websites. Instead, I have to enter my user name and use the virtual keyboard, which is a pain in the rear. Worse, the Wallet prompts me to enter the password every 5 minutes. I spent half an hour trying to justify constantly entering the password into Wallet, thinking that it will relieve me from using the virtual keyboard. Then I came across this topic and realized I wasted my time.

It is preposterous to think that they could offer a plugin for IE, yet cannot do the same for their own browser.

The Wallet has issue too. Once you are in the Wallet, the passwords are in clear text. It also saves login and passwords without prompting me.

Bitdefender is feature packed, and technically advanced, but their technies should leave the User Interface design to experts.

The implementation of fully integration of Wallet in Safepay standalone has been started (autofill, load/save etc.).

Once it will fully integrated in standalone, I think it will get ported in BD as well. Not sure, though, if also in 2014, or only in the upcoming 2015 version.

Will get back when I know more.

Cristian

I know that marketing people like to package improvements into just one release, but use of an AV is an ongoing thing and we need improvements available to the user as soon as they are available instead of waiting until marketing say so. Otherwise alternative solutions such as Avast and Comodo who have a similar Safepay feature look increasingly tempting. Please pass this on, thanks !

I fully understand what do you mean. Every user wants its thing working, and that's normal.

The Wallet integration is, as I said previously, currently under development.

2015 alpha is coming in March; we're working on Wallet integration as I said; marketing is pushing their thing, as you already pointed out :).

Additionally, we're integrating with other browsers; I am porting Safepay to multiprocess (which is bloody, but will boost the stability since the current implementation is single process and any crash will bring the house down).

That's the main reason of this delay - overlapping with the entire desktop team (re)working the next version. Wallet was massively re-engineered to be client-server, and that delayed us with integration.

I don't want this to sound as an excuse - just a feedback about the progress.

I understand there are other solutions out there; I hope you will give us some room to accommodate all these things we're juggling with and wait for the next stable release including what you asked. (Be sure we're in constant battle with marketing...)

Cristian

:unsure: I'm a little late coming into this discussion, but can I ask where we are now with the issues raised in this thread? I purchased BD Internet Security this year and have yet to activate Wallet (though I am constantly being prompted to) chiefly because of the complaints about how it actually functions. I don't know whether using it now will be more a hindrance or a help.

I gave up wondering and waiting. Due in part to some other issues I was experiencing with browsing slowdowns I have now reverted to Webroot Secure Anywhere on my main PC although still using BD on several other PCs in the house. The difference with WR is amazing, no browsing impact, innovative protection mechanisms, and yes, it has an equivalent of Wallet which is based on the LastPass tool. Another plus of Webroot that I have experienced is the rapid and helpful support team, unlike BD, Avast and many others. Hope BD step up a gear and sort these problems out quickly.
