Editors' Review


Trend Micro Antivirus is a powerful malware detection tool that works to boost your Mac's efficiency in identifying and blocking unwanted software and intrusive processes. It finds the right balance between protection and usability and does so in a way that is accessible to most users.


Solid malware blocking ability: Trend Micro Antivirus is incredibly efficient in detecting potential problems. This includes checking social media privacy settings, managing your passwords and other encrypted data on your machine, and ensuring proper security for your files when transferring them.

Builds on a strong entry-level tool: Trend Micro Antivirus builds up the entry-level suite in many ways, adding much-needed security tools like password management and online backup.


Not always a good tool for fixing existing problems: While Trend Micro will protect your machine against intrusion and infection, it's not as effective in cleaning up an already messy system. Additionally, there are some overzealous protections built in to the system, which can be altered but could be an impediment for some users.

Bottom Line

If you are looking for a powerful antivirus and antimalware app combined with a number of other powerful tools to protect your personal data and your Mac, then Trend Micro Antivirus is a good fit at a reasonable price.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Trend Micro Antivirus for Mac. The trial version has limited functionality.

"Stay Infection Free"

March 16, 2013  |  By Jalapenomagic

 |  Version: Trend Micro Titanium 2013 2.0.1279


Very easy to install, doesn't slow down your Mac with invasive controls, very dependable and requires little interaction to keep protection updated. I also like the ability to cover two additional Macs or PCs with the one subscription.


Would be nice if they allowed more accounts to be added at a discounted rate over and above the two extra accounts that accompany the first fully paid account.

"Easier to use than ClamXav. Has real-time protection."

August 03, 2011  |  By coffeejunkie

 |  Version: Trend Micro Smart Surfing 1.0


Got it free with purchase of 1 TB Firewire 800 backup drive. Easy to use. Provides real time protection


Infrequent updated of virus signatures, as compared to Microsoft Security Essential on WIndows. No firewall!


Haven't checked for a while, but it's the best I can find on CNET that's free. My MacKeeper Utility($30/year) with new Antivirus capability had given me problems and I disabled it's antivirus option to keep using this package. Don't know if I'm making the best choice.
