Configuring the update frequency
By default, the application is set to silently update every 2 hours and requires an active internet connection.
The Updates section allows you to configure your update frequency and how BullGuard displays the update information. By default, the application is set to silently update every 2 hours and requires an active internet connection.
When enabled, BullGuard will automatically look for any available updates. If it is disabled, you will need to manually update BullGuard by clicking the Check for updates button from the Main section. Turning off the updates is recommended only for users with slow or limited traffic internet connections.
Check for updates
Sets the update frequency and ranges from 1 hour to 24 hours. Note that an up-to-date security application is one of the requirements for a virus-free computer. Because BullGuard was designed for users connected to the internet for long periods of time, the default update interval is 2 hours.
Allows you to choose how you want to be notified when BullGuard implements an update:
* Completely silent: No message is displayed when BullGuard updates.
* Show a notification once every 8 hours: A pop-up message will appear every 8 hours
* Show a notification for every update: For each update, BullGuard will display a message when the update is implemented.
Warn if updates are
Allows BullGuard to notify you that the updates are older than a specified date. The date range varies from 2 to 14 days. This option is a failsafe that enforces a periodic BullGuard update and should not be disabled.
