A popular misconception is that macOS computers are invulnerable and that there’s little point in investing in an antivirus program for your Mac. Cybercriminals are persistent in their attacks, and have created sophisticated malware that targets Apple machines. It is crucial to have a good antivirus software to keep your Mac secure. You can easily find a highly-rated program at a reasonable cost.

AVG Antivirus Free provides basic security that won’t break the bank. It automatically updates to ensure you always have the most up-to-date security against malware, viruses and spyware. It also scans all files and applications so you can be sure that nothing is slipping into your system.

Bitdefender Antivirus for Mac is an alternative that’s not going to break the bank. It comes with a range of security features, including parental controls, ransomware detection that block microphones and cameras as well as antiphishing defenses. You can either get the standalone version of this Mac antivirus or you can integrate it into the security suite of the company’s top-of-the-line which includes protection for Android phones as well as Windows PCs.

Intego is a seasoned Mac protection company that is aware of the details of Apple’s operating system. Its macOS security suite is highly regarded by independent testing labs and its X9 product has strong detection of everything from browser hack scripts to malware. Norton 360 is another solid alternative that has proven results in tests and its Mac security suite is part of a broader security suite that covers all your devices (up to 10). Malwarebytes is well-known for its real-time security, which is very low on system resources.
