Installing LogMeIn Antivirus powered by Bitdefender

How to install and activate LogMeIn Antivirus on any Windows host.

Users should have the LogMeIn Central and Antivirus management enabled permissions enabled. Primarily, to ensure optimal performance, all other anti-virus software, except for Windows Defender must be manually removed from the host. After you have removed your previous antivirus software from your software;
  1. Log in to your LogMeIn Central account, and go to Antivirus.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Select the checkbox for each computer where you want to install LogMeIn Antivirus.

    Result: The Actions button is activated at the top of the page.

  4. Click Actions > Install LogMeIn Antivirus.
    • For each host that is online with no conflicting anti-virus software installed, LogMeIn Antivirus is installed and activated.
    • If conflicting anti-virus software is detected, you must remove it before continuing.
    • If offline hosts are detected, you should bring them online before continuing.
    • The host-side end user does not need to take action to complete the installation. Host-side users are not interrupted.

LogMeIn Antivirus remains active as long as a host remains attached to your LogMeIn Central account. Activation renews automatically every 30 days.

As with other LogMeIn Central features, if you have trouble with the LogMeIn Antivirus installation, contact LogMeIn Customer Support.
