Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do you need virus protection on a Mac?

    You need to protect your Mac with antivirus software because Macs are vulnerable to many forms of malware. Even though Macs may have been fairly resilient to hacks and many types of malware in the past, hackers are targeting Macs more and more every year, and instances of Mac malware are on the rise. Macs are especially susceptible to adware. This means Mac antivirus software isn’t a luxury, but a necessity if you want to use your Mac safely online.

  • Is a free antivirus app for Mac good enough?

    Yes! Legitimate antivirus software is far superior to going online without protection. But while free antivirus software for Mac is enough, paid antivirus solutions often include additional features that can provide even more benefits, options, and security protections. AVG Internet Security is one such paid solution that comes with premium features such as tools to block phishing attacks, enhanced ransomware protection, and network scans.
