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


That's not wrong at all, OS X is Unix-based which has a much more robust permissions system, which makes running any program you don't want to run much more difficult.

"I never get into any car accidents because I don't drive a car. I hop everywhere on a pogo stick. It hurts a lot when I unbalance and fall onto concrete, but I never get into any car accidents."


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 such thing as "inherently" more secure. It's easier to pwn a *nix box admined by an idiot than it is a Windows one. Sadly we seem to have quite a few around if we're seriously seeing "common sense" represented as anything other than taking advantage of the toolset available for free.

Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

I was using Norton for a while and was very happy with it. However in July it was time to renew and I didn't want to pay that amount.
So now I'm running Malwarebytes.
Between that and Windows Defender, I don't see any problems.

A mac is no safer than a PC. THAT IS FACT.

Though the amount of viruses, malware, ect that is made for macs is nil compared to PC because of how little a market share macs have.
