Editors' Review

AVG AntiVirus for Mac helps keep your Mac free of viruses and running smoothly. Through its intuitive interface, this app lets you manage your security settings and run scans at any time to ensure complete protection.

Pros

Scanning options: With AVG AntiVirus for Mac, you can either complete a full scan of your computer, or you can select a file or files to scan independently. This saves you time and lets you avoid repeating scans of the same items over and over again. There are also several options on the Preferences page that allow you to customize your scanning further, including the option to scan for Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) that you may have unintentionally downloaded.

Real-time Protection: Real-time Protection detects and eliminates new threats in real time, so once you've cleaned off your machine, you won't have to worry about new infections taking hold. This feature can be turned on and off as you see fit.

Cons

Slow scans: In testing, a full scan of our Macbook Air took over an hour and returned a result of no threats detected. This seemed long for a relatively small machine without any issues. But once you've completed a full scan once, you won't need to repeat it often.

Bottom Line

AVG AntiVirus is a good free tool for protecting your computer from a wide range of external threats. The file scan option lets you choose exactly what you want to scan, and Real-time Protection safeguards against new threats.
