Avast Security for Mac – Your Mac is not immune. Now you can make it so
Malware isn’t the only threat to your Mac. Malicious websites and vulnerable Wi-Fi networks can also jeopardize your safety. Avast Security for Mac is designed to neutralize these three threats — exposing Wi-Fi intruders and blocking off ransomware too.
- Anti-Malware Security
- Web & Email Shields
- Wi-Fi Security Scan
- Wi-Fi Intruder Alerts
- Ransomware Shield
Malware in your Mac? Not anymore
Your macOS can block some types of malware, but what do you do if you’re already a carrier? Our antivirus for Mac not only blocks viruses, spyware, Trojans, and other malware in real-time, it also scans your entire Mac for hidden malware you didn’t even know was there. Plus, our Ransomware Shield walls off ff your photos and files from ransomware attack to ensure that none of your most personal memories can be encrypted — or changed in any way — without your permission.
Browse and email the Security Pro way
Trusted websites get hacked sometimes, and even the sharpest eye can miss the clues in the latest criminal spoof email campaigns that impersonate your bank (or your mom). Avast Security Pro alerts you to unsafe websites, blocks unsafe downloads, stops dangerous email attachments, and prevents intrusive web tracking.
Find the weakest link in your Wi-Fi — and expose intruders too
An unsecured Wi-Fi network is an open door to threats. Avast Security Pro scans your entire network and all connected devices for vulnerabilities to help you stop hackers from stealing your personal data. It also instantly alerts you when someone joins your Wi-Fi network, so you can keep hackers out, and stop neighbors piggy-backing on your hard-earned Wi-Fi.
Avast Security for Mac System requirements
We’re not demanding. All you need is a Mac running macOS 10.9 (Mavericks) or later with at least 500 MB of disk space.
