Stop malware and scan for Wi-Fi security weaknesses with our free antivirus for Mac.
Malware isn’t the only threat to your Mac. Malicious websites and vulnerable Wi-Fi networks can also jeopardize your safety. Avast Security provides essential free protection against all 3 threats.
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.

Stops both Mac and Windows threats to prevent you from sharing infected files with your friends who use PCs.
Run an in-depth scan of your entire Mac to root out hidden malware.
Scan any external drives (CD, DVD, USB, etc.) attached to your Mac.
