Previously I have tested the free version. And I had posted here but couldn’t find my post now.
At that time free version was not good both in detection & other aspects like if I remember correctly for every detection you have to click on get code online & then you get a code which you have to fill in to remove threats, etc…
Dont know how good is this free version. I couldn’t find what features are there in free version. Paid & Free Mobile version on the official eng page shows features but free AV doesn’t shows what features are there & difference between free & paid. Only download is there.
Installed in Virtual Kiosk. Restart was required but I didn’t restarted as Kiosk would have deleted the install.
Options showed Proactive, Behavior Blocker, USB Protection, Cloud Protection, Self Protection unchecked. I tried to check them but nothing happened. Dont know if these features are not available in free version or due to installed in Kiosk & the system was not restarted I wasn’t able to check them.
Only Realtime Protection (I guess signature protection) & Firewall were checked.
Bkav Home Plus (free version) requires users to type a code (in present, the way to get this code is very simple) just in case of detecting & removing metamorphic virus. And with other type of virus, Bkav FE can detect and remove normally and does not require anything.
Bkav Pro (paid version) does not require to type a code in case of detecting & removing metamorphic virus.
This is a comparison between Bkav Pro & Bkav Home. I’m sorry it is in Vietnamese. If you have questions, kindly ask.
About Bkav Mobile Security, the only-PRO features is marked with “PRO” in the right corner of each tab. The only-PRO features are: Call & SMS Block, Privacy Mode, Backup & Restore, Anti-Theft and Privacy Advisor.
The free version is very limited. Most of the free AVs now have the same core protection in their free & paid products. It has lot less compared to other good free AVs. And I dont understand if the features are already limited in the free version why metamorphic virus cleaning is not available normally.
For me the free version is not worth.

Bkav Home - The free version with basic features. However, if your condition should upgrade to Bkav Pro to achieve effective long-term and comprehensive. To upgrade, you need have Bkav Card Pro (U.S. $ 299,000 / one year of use, the transfer can take place across the country, free shipping)
Bkav Home Plus - the new free version of the basic features. However, if conditions permit, you should upgrade to Bkav Pro to achieve effective long-term and comprehensive. To upgrade, you need have Bkav Card Pro (U.S. $ 299,000 / one year of use, the transfer can take place across the country, free shipping)
This is quite confusing. Why 2 free versions & whats the difference between the 2?
Bkav Home is the beginning version of Bkav, which developed since 1995 when Director Nguyen Tu Quang was a student in Hanoi University of Technology. This version is basic, can detect and remove threats, but it seems limit with metamorphic virus.
Bkav Home Plus is based on Bkav Pro engine.
