Double Protected

I actually have a RBR40 locally connected Orbi mesh router for the past year. I recently paid for a 1-year subscription to NetGear Armor Bitdefender since the original subscription was expiring.

 

Now, I currently have ESET Cyber Security software installed on my MacBook Pro and I'm quite happy that it's keep me secure and free of viruses.

 

Would I need to uninstall the ESET software in order to install and run NetGear Armor Bitdefender on this device and others?
Would there be no conflicts to use them both on my laptop - hence double protected.

 

Thanks in advance,

Model: RBR20|Orbi AC2200 Tri-band WiFi Router

As long as I can remember, running multiple security suites on a computer has been discouraged.  However, this is 2021.  Things may have changed.

 

I think you are more likely to get an informed response by posting the question in the community forum for Armor:

And by asking ESET.

 

Good Luck.
