Mac computers aren’t invincible to digital filth. While Windows PCs are usually the main focus of media for attracting the most harmful malware, Macs are not protected from the same. This is why we’ve reviewed and tested the most effective antivirus protection for mac available to keep your Apple computer secure.

Our picks offer near-flawless malware detection rates, and come with security features essential to your system, such as ransomware protection, phishing defenses and camera plus microphone guards. They also have a minimal pressure on system resources, and provide outstanding performance. Some, like McAfee and Trend Micro have even been rated as best in independent lab tests.

Apple’s Gatekeeper security tool is highly effective at blocking most malware. However, it could be manipulated with clever attacks that exploit flaws in third-party software installed on top of Mac OS. Standalone virus scanners can help.

Comodo is an antivirus program for free with an easy interface. It can scan any file your system has accessed. Quick scans can be completed in less than a minute, whereas running a complete scan of the system may take up to two hours. You can schedule these scans and choose the time they should run, so your Mac won’t be overwhelmed during unpopular times.

Malwarebytes has been eliminating the full range of Windows threats since 2006, so it’s no surprise that its Mac version is equally effective against them as well. The installation is just the size of three music files in digital format, so it’s a lightweight application to your system. It doesn’t have real-time protection so it can’t stop an attack before it happens. However, a complete scan of your system takes a few hours, and the minimalist design ensures that it doesn’t interfere with other applications.
