facts are facts bruh don't be mad should of gotten a mac


Macs aren't any less susceptible to getting viruses, they're just such a tiny share of the market "hackers" don't waste their time.


no, they're also less susceptible to getting viruses because they are Unix based which is inherently more secure than Windows.


.... No, that's just... Wrong. WYATT is right on this matter.

I use Avast before, but then I got pissed when it turned into bloatware and slowed my computer so uninstalled it. Now I don't have any antivirus installed in my PC for about a year now and my PC still runs pretty fast(it boots up in under a minute), I did a scan using that Windows Defenders thingy and I'm suprised it came out clean despite having no antivirus for months. Just don't click suspicious links and don't go to dodgy websites and you're good to go

Some perk, each and every piece of hardware or software for a mac has a 50-100% markup

I'd rather pay 15$ a year for antivirus software than 1000$ extra to get the same power I have on a Mac.

That's a bad analogy, a better one would be :

"I never got into any car accidents because my car is incompatible with most roads, however the roads I can drive on don't have as many potholes."

I use this as well. Though I use Comodo as a firewall.

Common sense also goes a long way. Though there are situations in which you really do not do anything wrong, and you can still be exposed to threats. Best to use some software. Why wouldn't you. It is free, does not take up many resources, and requires little configuration.
