The Internet may seem harmless, but the reality is that danger is lurking everywhere, and almost everything wants to attack your device. Spyware, malware, and spam are all over the Internet, and without the correct protection in place, they can easily breach into your device, and macOS devices aren’t left out of the equation. You may have heard that macOS is practically “invulnerable” to malware, but this simply isn’t true. While it’s true that macOS isn’t as big a target as Windows, there still exists malware on macOS.
Fail to prepare, then prepare to fail
No matter what device you own, you should always have anti-malware protection, as it isn’t a question of if you get infected, its when. Anti-malware software ensures that when an attack arises you are never left in the dust and that all of your sensitive information is safe.
At Solent Way Computers, we believe that security should be at the forefront of everything when using laptops, desktops, mobile devices, tablets, Smart TVs (basically any device, as they are all vulnerable to attacks). A common attack is the Trojan virus, you might have heard of the Trojan horse story where a large wooden horse was built with a force of men inside and attacked the city of Troy, a Trojan virus is a piece of malware hidden in a useful application, and sometimes attacks you without even knowing.
