How to detect and remove viruses on Mac

Think your Mac is infected? How to detect and remove viruses and malware on Mac computers

Many Mac computer users believe that Apple computers are perfectly protected from any type of malicious software or virus code. This situation might have been true for some considerable time, however, the prevalence of malware has increased with the growing popularity of Apple products. On the other hand, mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch remain relatively safe, since most malicious software and viruses are developed to infect the macOS operating system. Despite this, some of these infections transfer from Macs to iOS devices when they are connected via a USB cable.

Check if your Mac is not infected with Crypto Mining malware

A common myth often regaled around the office water cooler is that Macs do not become infected with viruses. This was partly spread by a 2009 Apple advertising campaign that formed part of the “Get a Mac” campaign. One of the key selling points of this campaign was that Macs did not suffer from the “thousands” of viruses (now commonly referred to as "malware"), which plagued Microsoft computers. Over time, it was proven that Macs were not exposed to the multitude of malware strains that targeted Windows systems. The reasons for this are the following:

  • Small market share. There is some truth to the “security through obscurity” argument. Many virus writers are motivated by the power they can command and money they can make by seizing control of large numbers of computers. That puts a financial premium on Windows malware, since, globally, there are far more Windows computers than those running Mac OS.
  • With Unix-based file systems and kernel, Mac Operating Systems are harder to infect with self-replicating programs. Windows allows users to develop and run executable code outside their own protected memory space, whereas Mac OS X does not.
