We are firm believers that you shouldn’t have to pay for antivirus security for your PC or Mac.
If the manufacturers of the operating system have left it vulnerable in any way then they should be the ones that pay or there should be free alternatives. So, without further a do, here is some great free software you can use to keep your computer secure.
With Mac, viruses aren’t so much the issue as is malware, this is generally due to the way the OS is developed (and based on Unix).
For a little while now Microsoft have provided free software in the form of Microsoft Security Essentials, and now Windows Defender, which is built in and updates when Windows updates. So cancel your annual Anti-virus subs and download this instead!
Note; this is for Windows 7. If you have 8 or newer it’s built in and you don’t need to worry.
Mac: We have provided links to a couple of great AV packages for Mac previously! See the following: Free Antivirus For Mac
On checking these are probably still on top. Don’t hang around and test either today!
We always recommend using Malwarebytes Free too to use in addition to the above and this can be used once a week or month just to make sure your computer is protected.
