Though so many antivirus and security products charge annual subscriptions, there are still free options out there with few or no strings attached. The freebies typically offer more basic or limited protection, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth using. One such product that fits the bill is McAfee Total Protection Antivirus for Mac. Designed to block viruses and spyware, McAfee Total Protection offers real-time and on-demand scanning to prevent malware from infecting your Mac. If you are happy to pay there are plenty of options—see our Best Antivirus for Mac round up—but for a free program AVG covers all the bases, blocking viruses and malware from websites, downloads, and email attachments. AVG can scan applications and files on your Mac for potential threats and automatically remove them. Running in the background, the program.
