Renew license key of bitdefender for linux command line version

  • Request a new license key for personal use only (you have to buy one if you want to use Bitdefender in a commercial setting).
  • Locate the config file of bitdefender, for version 7.6 this is in cd /opt/BitDefender-scanner/etc
  • Update the license key at the end of the file sudo vim bdscan.conf
  • Update the scanner and definition files sudo bdscan –update
