Your macOS might stop some malware variants, but it can’t help you if you’re already infected. Our antivirus for Mac Filehippo not only blocks viruses, spyware, Trojans, and other malware in real-time, it also scans your entire Mac for already-hidden threats.
Macs need protection, too
Mac OS X is considered one of the most secure operating systems available. But today’s threats aren’t after your computer – they’re after your identity and your money.
Even trusted websites can get hacked, and criminals can easily spoof emails from your friends or bank. Avast Security alerts you to unsafe websites, blocks unsafe downloads, stops dangerous email attachments, and prevents intrusive web tracking.
These days hackers “phish,” “spearphish” and “whale” to target you specifically. Combine these with other threats like router hijacking, and your identity is at great risk of being stolen.
An unsecured Wi-Fi network is an open door to threats. Avast Security scans your entire network and all connected devices for vulnerabilities to help you stop hackers from stealing your personal data.
Will it work with my Mac?
If you’re on a Mac running OSX, it will work. You need 128 MB of RAM and 750MB of disk space. Beyond that, you can be running just about any stable version of OSX (even Yosemite), and the app keeps you protected.
There’s security in numbers
More people around the world trust Avast for their security than any other company. That means better security for all of us. The reason is simple: “We see and react to more data from more users, so we can make your protection better.”
