Do Macs get viruses? Do Macs need antivirus software? The answer isn't as simple as it may seem. In this article, we look at the dangers faced by Mac users and the pros and cons of using Mac antivirus software
We also explore how secure Macs are in comparison to Windows PCs. The Mac has historically been considered to be safe and secure for a number of reasons, but in recent years that has shifted considerably.
As the popularity of the Mac grows and viruses and malware become more advanced, the Mac has become more of a target than it has been in the past. A recent report by Malwarebytes has suggested that Mac malware grew by 270 percent in 2017. We have a complete list of all the Mac viruses, malware and security flaws that have hit the operating system here
In previous years, Mac users were less vulnerable to malware because there were far more PCs and therefore PCs were a more lucrative target.
On the whole, Macs have remained pretty secure. This is partly thanks to the fact that the Mac operating system is Unix-based, and Unix offers a number of built-in security features.
In addition, Apple itself has included a number of security measures that make attacking a Mac particularly challenging. These include Gatekeeper, which blocks software that hasn’t been digitally approved by Apple from running on your Mac without your agreement.
