We’ve crafted a unique and powerful suite of enhanced security designed specifically to protect every aspect of your digital life — securing your personal data, your browsing, and your peace of mind.
Malware can’t hide from us
Your macOS might stop some malware variants, but it can’t help you if you’re already infected. Our antivirus for Mac not only blocks viruses, spyware, Trojans, and other malware in real-time, it also scans your entire Mac for already-hidden threats.

Full Mac Scan
Run an in-depth scan of your entire Mac to root out hidden malware.
Removable Drive Scan

Select specific files or folders for faster, targeted scans.
Schedule scans for when you’re sleeping or away from your Mac.
Stay informed with personalized security reports every 30 days.
