Editors' Review


Avast Mac Security 2015 provides you with the tools you need to protect your Mac from the growing number of malware threats.


Minimalism throughout: Avast Mac Security 2015 pares settings down to a basic interface with only five primary buttons.

Complete protection: The Avast program can scan your system for existing problems and can also be configured to protect you from new threats. You can also scan external drives and volumes to ensure that you're completely protected from infected files.


Relatively slow scan: When you're doing a complete system scan, it is always going to take a considerable amount of time. Avast's Mac Security 2015 seems to take exceptionally long. It took more than 4 hours to complete a total system scan.

Inaccurate progress bar: During testing, it was impossible to tell how much time was remaining in the system scan. Immediately after testing started, the progress bar jumped up to 100 percent and then continued to increase the percentage count, with no further movement in the bar.

Bottom Line

If you don't already have virus protection in place on your Mac, this is a worthy choice. It is streamlined, easy to use, and has all of the features that you need in this type of software.

I guess it works if i could actually use my computer to test it


Sucks up way too much resources and makes my laptop difficult to use.

Easy to understand interface, non-intrusive, and reliable. This program does NOT slow my IMAC down at all.


I do not have any cons.


Highly recommended.

"Turns your iMac into a tree sloth....."

It does work


AVAST will slow your iMac down to the point it is unusable. My e-mails loaded like molasses and my computer routinely was virtually shut down for an hour every time AVAST downloaded updates to the antivirus file. This occurred with Yosemite and El Capitan. I finally deleted the program and it was like getting a new computer! It now funs much, much faster - AVAST turns your computer into a brick!!!!


This program seems to work by blocking viruses and malware; however, it comes at a huge price by slowing your computer to the point it is useless.
