Ah, the internet!
It’s so incredibly useful, and at the same time you won’t find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. Well, technically, it’s more useful than villain-y.
Still, it’s good to be careful!
So what’s the best way to stay safe when using the internet? Strong passwords? Antivirus? Browser add-ons? Privacy enhancers? VPNs?!
That’s all well and good, but there’s one trick that will never let you down…
Macs were in the news again this week as Malwarebytes released a report claiming that for the first time ever, malware on Macs outpaced that of Windows-based PCs in 2019.
It sounds like a total nightmare for Apple users!
But hang on a sec… Malwarebytes released the report, and they have been promoting their Mac version of their anti-malware software recently.
So, what’s the real deal here?
If you have Windows, you probably have some kind of anti-virus or anti-malware software installed.
If you purchased your computer instead of building it yourself, your system will most likely have come pre-installed with McAfee or some other product.
Well, everybody has their opinions on the question of security. Some people prefer Kaspersky, some love Norton, others swear by Avast. I don’t know anyone who swears by McAfee…
I’ve used all of these over the years, and I’ve managed quite a few computers in my day.
So, what’s the best antivirus and anti-malware software out there?
